Add detective to Tyler Perry’s resume.

The Atlanta-based actor/director has signed on to play the role of Alex Cross, the crime-solving detective in James Patterson’s seemingly never-ending series of popular novels — in a new movie called “I, Alex Cross.”

The character was previously played by Morgan Freeman in “Kiss The Girls”and “Along Came A Spider.” The plan is for Tyler to do a trilogy.

This would be the first major role Perry has undertaken that doesn’t involve one of his projects.
