Tyler Perry joins ‘Gone Girl’

tyler-perryTyler Perry has signed on for a role in Gone Girl, David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestseller. In the film he will play the attorney of Ben Affleck’s character, Nick, who is put under scrutiny when his wife disappears.

Here’s the plot of the novel courtesy of Barnes & Noble:

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

In addition top Perry and Affleck, the cast also includes Rosamund Pyke, Patrick Fugit, Neil Patrick Harris, Kim Dickens and Carrie Coon.

    I hope it’s more of a glorified cameo or that he’s learned to act since Alex Cross. Otherwise, what the heck?! I still can’t wait for the movie though. It’s David Fincher!
