Tyler Perry continues to prove that there’s more to his brand than Madea.

The actor and media mogul has landed the role of Alex Cross in the aptly titled thriller ‘Alex Cross’.

Set to hit US theaters on October 19th, the movie relays the narrative of a Washington DC detective (Perry), who is told that a family member has been murdered. Vowing to track down the killer, he soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem.

Exciting, if only to see how Perry fares in such a radically different role.

Peep the trailer above for more of  an inkling.

Call it the ‘Think Like A Man’ effect.  What ever you call it, there is some serious star power packed in the forthcoming film ‘Baggage Claim’.  From the pen of playwright/director David E. Talbert (‘What My Husband Doesn’t Know’), the novel-turned-movie is set to feature Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Octavia Spencer, Trey Songz, Tia Mowry, Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, and Djimon Hounsou to name a few.

As if the aforementioned were not enough, the cast’s finalization will not take place until next month when production begins.  Needless to say, fans of the star-filled ‘Think Like a Man’ movie (also set for a sequel) should enjoy this collection of actors.

As reported here, with ‘Your Body’ beauty Christina Aguilera set to leave ‘The Voice’ for its 2013 spring season (though expected to return Fall 2013), NBC has enlisted the help of another Latin sex symbol to take her place – Shakira.  The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ hitmaker is readying a new LP, but now she will add ‘reality talent show’ judge to her ever-growing resume.

And, with word Cee Lo Green is expected to make an exit at this season‘s end as well, R&B veteran Usher will step in as his replacement.  Still in heavy promotions of his 2012 project ‘Looking For Myself’, the crooner is undoubtedly looking for the T.V. opportunity to reestablish his force in the music industry.

The announcement follows his highly anticipated sitdown with talk show queen Oprah to detail his recent personal troubles (see: divorce from/custody battle with Tameka Foster).

Is Tamar Braxton the queen of freestyle singing?

Bringing us such classics as the impromptu ‘Bumpin & Grindin’, ‘Pick Up That Phone’, and ‘The Daddy Song’, Miss Braxton-Herbert may have comically secured that title by enlisting the piano skills of her superstar, Grammy-winning sister Toni Braxton recently.

Introducing the interestingly titled ‘Ding-a-Ling of Gold’, the tune is aimed at sister Trina Braxton‘s consideration of reconciliation with ex-husband Gabriel Solis.  The twosome’s split came highly publicized on the family’s hit WeTV reality series ‘Braxton Family Values’.

See the oldest and youngest of the Braxton clan take to the ivories to lend a heartfelt ballad with hopes of offering an explanation of Trina’s decision above:
