"Me & the ever beautiful, timeless LEGEND...Beverly Johnson!!! Thanx Tyler for casting an icon to play my mama :)"
Those were words tweeted by Ms Gabrielle Union yesterday, which was accompanied by a link to the above photo of her and Beverly Johnson, while on Tyler Perry's Good Deeds set in Atlanta.
Needless to say, we can go ahead and add Beverly Johnson to the cast of the film as mother to Gabrielle Union's uppity fiancee character in the movie - something which I don't believe have been formerly announced... unless I just missed it.
And in case this is the first time you're hearing about this project... Tyler Perry is starring and directing the upcoming new film, Good Deeds, in which he stars as Glen Deeds, described as an affluent and successful entrepreneur who’s about to get married when he suddenly becomes enamored by a down-on-her-luck single mother who rekindles a spark that seems to have faded with his uptown fiancée.
Thandie Newton is playing the “down-on-her-luck single mother;" Phylicia Rashad, and Brian White, are also attached, although we don't know in what roles.
