Christian Bale’s extreme physical transformation to play Dick Cheney has been the biggest talking point around Adam McKay’s upcoming political comedy-drama “Vice,” but the Oscar winner isn’t the only actor in the film to appear unrecognizable. Annapurna has debuted an official first look at Tyler Perry as Colin Powell, who served as United States Secretary of State during George W. Bush’s first term from 2001 to 2005. Powell was the first African-American to assume the role of Secretary of State.
Powell is the latest high profile acting gig for Perry, who has often starred as Madea in his own films that he’s directed. The last live-action roles for Perry in other people’s films were “Brain on Fire” and David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.”
Perry is best known for his directing efforts, most recently the Tiffany Haddish-starring comedy “Nobody’s Fool.” He’s set to appear as Madea one final time in “A Madea Family Funeral,” which he also wrote and directed. The movie opens in theaters March 1.
Annapurna will release “Vice” in theaters December 25.
