Rudy to Turn Tricks for 'Madea' Flick?

Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry Film Franchise Steamroller is chugging right along with the announcement that his latest adaptation slated for production will be Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail. This will, of course, follow The Family That Preys and A Jazz Man’s Blues, the two films he’s probably halfway finished shooting (despite his IMDB page saying he’s “filming” one and has the other in pre-production. We know how he rolls. Expect both of those to drop before this time next year…).

Anyway, EW reports that Keshia Knight Pulliam (aka Rudith Lillian Huxtable) is slated to appear as Candy, a prostitute Madea meets during her stint in the titular jail and protects from another inmate named “Big Sal.” No word on who’s gonna play Big Sal.

Derek Luke is also attached to play a lawyer who has a “past” with Candy. Nice.

Hear that, Mr. Cosby? We know Keshia graduated from Spelman with a degree in sociology. But… “Isn’t it a sign of something when she’s got her dress all the way up to the crack?”


slb (aka Stacia L. Brown) is a writer, mother, and college instructor in Baltimore, MD. Check her out here: and here:

    I think Candy should have a friend named Amber played by Judy from Family Matters, who got bumped from the show and did a few adult films when she was older. That would make it more fun.

    And The Cos should have a cameo as a prison visitor who vows that, if they stay off the pole after their release, he’ll pay for their college education. (Madea should then look at the camera and raise an eyebrow.)

  • While they’re at it, why not just throw in Phylicia Rashad as the prison nurse that calls everyone Rudy?

  • After Lisa Bonet and the Angel Heart fiasco, the Cos is desensitized to keisha’s behavior

  • Oh this was funny… Well lil’ Rudy has gotta to do what she has to do…We won’t even talk about when she ran for Ms. Morehouse, which leads me to my next point that it’s Spelman not Spellman…
