Blackfilm is reporting that Alicia Witt (Mr Holland’s Opus, The Upside of Anger) has joined the cast of Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Christmas. She will join a cast that includes such the considerable talents of Perry, Tika Sumpter, Chad Michael Murray, Eric Lively, Larry the Cable Guy, and Kathy Najimy.
Madea gets coaxed into helping a friend pay her daughter a surprise visit in the country for Christmas, but the biggest surprise is what they’ll find when they arrive. As the small, rural town prepares for its annual Christmas Carnival, new secrets are revealed and old relationships are tested while Madea dishes her own brand of Christmas Spirit to all.
As usual Perry will write, direct, star, produce, cater, design sets and costumes as well as a myriad of other tasks.
Madea’s Christmas is scheduled to hit theatres December 13th.
