the onion: tyler perry to star as sassy chinese grandmother



Do you like the Madea movies? Then meet "Ming Mei." Filmmaker Tyler Perry has signed a $50 million deal to expand his franchise to include films targeted at the world's 1.4 billion Chinese moviegoers.

Also, none of what I just said is true. The Onion knocks it out of the park again with some fake entertainment news: Tyler Perry Expands His Fan Base With New Films About Sassy, Chinese Grandmother.



You know, I really do wish someone would make a series of movies "devoted to the Chinese American experience." But I hope to God they'll have nothing to do with Tyler Perry dressed in drag. But perhaps even worse -- it could look something like The Chin Chens.
