Perry also praised Jones stating, “In my opinion, Orlando is the perfect choice to take over this role. He is extraordinarily talented and will make one terrific Madea! I have given him my blessing and I urge everyone to go out and see this hysterically funny film this Christmas and support Orlando’s participation.”
Here’s what Jones had to say: “Truly honored to be entrusted with this amazing opportunity. I just hope I don’t screw it up.”
We still don’t know if this is true or a straight up lie. But here’s what we do know with certainty. With or Without Orlando Jones, “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas” is scheduled to open in theaters on Dec. 13, 2013.
In the meantime, we gotta know what your thoughts are on the possibility of Orlando Jones … or anyone else for that matter … other than Tyler Perry, playing Madea. What do you think?
