So you say you've always wanted to be in a Tyler Perry movie? You're in luck! 

Via his YouTube channel, Tyler Perry is hosting a talent search to find the next big screen star! Well... ok so it's for a walk-on role, but still, what's that saying about big things having small beginnings...? Gotta start somewhere. 

Plus, ya never know; he might like you enough, or something about you might mesmerize him, and he'll decide to give you an even plumper role in his next film. This is after all a business about impressions and connections; the more you make the better.

So what do you have to do? As the above image says: Submit an audition of you doing what you do best.

The Top 10 will be announced on June 29th and Tyler Perry will select the winner from there.

Good luck!

    Dear Mr Tyler Perry

    I am a 22 years old young man who has an passion for acting and I have always wanted to to be an actor because I feel that I could make a positive impact on our young generation and help our young men change their ways as well as embrace the Word of God and I think if they heard it from someone who knows what its like to lose someone at a young age. Since I was an young teen I've watched your movies and plays and everyone of them had a huge impact in my life and helped made me see things differently and I say thanks to you for being an man of God as well as an inspiration to all young and old and I hope and pray that you see the good as well as the God in me,thank you and God bless you and keep on trusting in God...
