Tyler Perry is starring in his first action flick (where he's not rocking a wig & shooting up family members). He's Alex Cross, the fictional homicide detective/psychologist from a series of books by James Patterson -- and it's the character previously played by Morgan Freeman in Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider. And one of the richest writers/directors/actors in the business premiered the new flick last night at Hollywood's Arclight Theater.
Check out Tyler & his celebrity friends hitting the carpet to celebrate inside...
Tyler became detective/psychologist Alex Cross for the new suspense/action flick of the same name. And the famed director hit the carpet last night at the Alex Cross premiere to celebrate his big new role.

Actress Kimberly Elise, who starred in Tyler's films, hit the carpet in a black & white printed dress.
