Is there anything Tyler Perry can't do? The [highest paid man in Hollywood](http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/09/tyler_perry_is_the_highest-paid_m...) is now starring as action hero in "Alex Cross," the James Patterson adaptation in which Perry assumes the titular detective role made famous by [Morgan Freeman](http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0009825/). That's it. Just wanted to alert readers there's a new [black action hero](http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2011/05/on-the-run-chasing-black-action-h...) in town that isn't Will Smith, Vin Diesel or Denzel Washington.
