I'm 'Fixin to Post' on Charles Jolivette's Tyler Perry Audition

If you're from New Orleans, you know what this post indicates. It suggests that I am about to do something and what you see now is preparation for whatever it is that I'm about to do. In this case, I mean that I'm getting ready not for a post at this blog, but something more organized with a little more thought, perhaps, that I will post and another Internet publishing location. Procrastinators Anonymous, here I come.

Anyway, I drop this note here as a reminder to myself that I am supposed to write about Charles Jolivette, a New Orleans author (debut novel Étouffée). And I hope I get back to it soon.

Mr. Jolivette requested on his Facebook page that people view his audition video for a Tyler Perry movie and to vote. I took a look. He does a good job, and he's easy on the eyes as well. His audition video is embedded below, and below that I've posted more information about Perry's contest. The deadline's near (June 29), so if you'd like to enter as well, hop to it.

Earlier today, movie mogul Tyler Perry posted this announcement on his Facebook page:
For a long time now, people have been asking me how they can be in one of my movies, plays or TV shows. Even as I read through my message board, the most popular question I see is, "How can I be in one of your movies?"

So… this one's for YOU! Now's your chance to earn a walk on role in one of my upcoming productions!

Just enter the Tyler Perry Talent Search at

I've created this competition to give my entire online family a chance to showcase their talent, and I expect to see some future stars. Even better, you'll be responsible for picking the Top 10 finalists. That's right… you get to vote for your favorite videos! Then, I'll personally choose the winner from your Top 10.

The competition starts NOW, so go to and follow steps 1, 2 & 3 to participate.

Voting closes and the Top 10 will be announced on June 29th – the same day MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION hits theaters.

Then, I'll personally choose the winner on July 6th.


Good luck!
The YouTube link for Perry's contest takes you to a promotional page for his latest movie where you will find another link for the audition information.
