Tyler Perry is showing off his versatile acting chops in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie.

Tyler Perry is well known for his gospel theme screenplays that turn into movies, and his role as Madea. He also acted as a lawyer in Gone Girl.

According to Variety, Tyler Perry has joined the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 as mad scientist Baxter Stockman. For those unfamiliar with the TNMT plot, Baxter Stockman created robots who run threw the sewers hunting down the turtles.

We all love Tyler Perry as Madea, but it will be interesting to see him play the antagonist of a legendary fictional story.

The movie is scheduled to release on June 3, 2016.
