Harry (Fox) and Brenda (Bassett) enter the house left to her by her late father.
“Brenda’s had a lot of disappointments from previous relationships and isn’t in a trusting place,” Fox explains. “I’m the man who recognizes that she has been hurt but is still capable of loving because I’ve also experienced the weight of heartbreak. But I refuse to remain passive in love and simply go for mine.”
“I was writing the role and trying to come up with the right person who could also play basketball,” says Tyler Perry of the search for a leading man for his latest stage-play-to-screen adaptation, Meet the Browns. “A few days later I almost hit Rick with my car while driving in Los Angeles, and then I realized he was ‘the guy.’ ”
Harry spends time with Brenda and her three children – and has a special surprise for them.
“Working with an actor of Angela’s caliber is truly a blessing. She was so giving as a costar, sharing her wisdom, support and guidance,” says Fox.
The entire Brown clan, in their Sunday best.
Vera (Jennifer Lewis) can barely contain her grief at her father’s funeral, and leans on her son Will (Lamman Rucker) for support.
