It looks as though Kim Kardashian will be adding ‘acting’ to her budding empire. She has just been handed a starring role in a new Tyler Perry film, titled ‘The Marriage Counselor’ which begins filming in Atlanta on October 26.
According to Deadline, Jurnee Smollett will play the title character of Judith, the Ivy League-educated relationship counselor who is having trouble keeping her own marriage together. Kim plays Judith’s co-worker Ava who gives her a makeover that boosts her confidence in the midst of her struggles. Judith eventually finds herself in a dilemma when she rekindles a relationship with an old college flame.
The film is Tyler Perry’s 13th collaboration with Lionsgate since 2005.
Granted, Kim is a great actress. She acts out her life every day for media outlets that suck it right on up but will she do well in an actual film?
Meanwhile, It looks as though Tyler Perry is banking on Kim Kardashian to give his films a wider appeal after all of the controversy surrounding his films. Kim will equal more press and promotion for Tyler who is hoping to get out of the ‘stereotypical black film’ box. Kim, in return, will capitalize off of Tyler Perry’s following so it will end up being a win/win for everyone.
