Last night on LNWJF, Jimmy sat down with the super talented Tyler Perry to talk about his new movie I Can Do Bad All By Myself. They mentioned Tyler's famous Madea character who first appeared on the big screen screen in 2005's Diary of a Mad Black Woman and again reappears in this year's I Can Do Bad. There have been a lot of significant roles throughout film history that require male actors to either play a woman or to dress as a woman. Some are Academy Award qualifiers while others are for pure comedic purposes.
