Think you have what it takes to be an actor, but you just don’t know how to “get out there”? Tyler Perry is looking for someone to appear in one of his upcoming productions and has used Facebook to announce a contest to find them.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Create a 3-minute or less audition video doing what you do.
2. Keep is short and sweet.
3. Upload it to YouTube by June 29.

Tyler’s online fam will select the Top 10 finalists from among the videos and he will select the winner from that group.

The post on Perry’s Facebook page announcing the contest says:

For a long time now, people have been asking me how they can be in one of my movies, plays or TV shows. Even as I read through my message board, the most popular question I see is, “How can I be in one of your movies?”

So… this one’s for YOU! Now’s your chance to earn a walk on role in one of my upcoming productions!

Just enter the Tyler Perry Talent Search at

I’ve created this competition to give my entire online family a chance to showcase their talent, and I expect to see some future stars. Even better, you’ll be responsible for picking the Top 10 finalists. That’s right… you get to vote for your favorite videos! Then, I’ll personally choose the winner from your Top 10.

The competition starts NOW, so go to and follow steps 1, 2 & 3 to participate.

Voting closes and the Top 10 will be announced on June 29th – the same day MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION hits theaters.

Then, I’ll personally choose the winner on July 6th.
