Highly underrated in my opinion. He has been around such a long time, and he should really be up there with all the greats.

He makes you believe in his character. He is intellegent as well as handsome. However his heart is in his acting look at the movie August Rush. What a movie.

39Tyler Perry

I think he's a great actor. What I like most about Tyler Perry is that he gives life to his characters, whether he's playing Madea or some other character actor that person come across as a real person, a person we can all relate to. He has taken us to another level. We see casts we wouldn't normally see and I'm loving it. Thanks Tyler.

Love this man... Especially love Madea... Needs to be up top!

Now you all know this man is the best. Hands down at what he do and I have seen anyon come close to showcasing a craft like this mam tyler perry
