Welcome back to the Double Standard. It’s been a while since I’ve checked in, but we are back with a regular feature called The Truth by Tyrone. Our new writer, Tyrone Thompson, will spit truth and knowledge about films and the culture surrounding motion pictures. Disclaimer: These thoughts reflected here do not necessarily represent the Double Standard, but we agree 100%. Enjoy.
ALEX CROSS IS DEAD.
by Tyrone Thompson
Tyler Perry is going to take over the role of Dr. Alex Cross.
The role previously mastered by your beloved Morgan Freeman.
Now i understand that Morgan Freeman, pushing a not so spry age of 75 in June, but this is the single WORST display of film casting i have ever seen! No way does Tyler Perry have the emotional range and intellectual depth of Freeman!
Freeman’s two roles in 1997’s Kiss The Girls and 2001’s Along Came A Spider are going to be considered classic now that the reins have been taken over by fucking “Madea”!
I’m not sure what the title of the next Dr.Alex Cross film will be, but I’ve read that big stunt action flick director Rob Cohen (Daylight), (XXX),(The Fast and The Furious) is going to man up for this one and Paramount wants to launch this new 3 film franchise.
I personally feel they should go straight to Patterson’s last Cross novel - Kill Alex Cross - because that is now the appropriate way to describe what is surely going to happen to this character.
That’s my status and i’m sticking to it!
