Video: Jamie Foxx Does Tyler Perry Doing Alex Cross Doing Madea In Comical Saturday Night Live Clip

December 10, 2012  |  

While I didn’t get to check out this past week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” in its entirety (I was out painting the town red), I did check out some of the most talked about clips from the show, which was hosted by Jamie Foxx and had Ne-Yo as the music guest. One that really stuck out to me was video of Foxx getting back into woman’s clothing, but not as Wanda the Ugly Woman from his “In Living Color” days, but when he threw on the floral dress, the large specs and the gray wig to be Tyler Perry playing Madea. Or make that Jamie Foxx playing Tyler Perry doing Madea AND Alex Cross in a fictional movie called, Tyler Perry’s Alex Cross 2 – Madea: Special Ops. If it sounds a mess, it looked a mess too, but it was definitely funny. Foxx played a two-face version of Perry as his most notable characters so far, as the sensible Cross character tried to fight crime–and his erratic gun-toting other side, Madea. The two fought over guns as Madea instructed Cross to buss a cap in a villain’s a**. The hilarious bickering that Foxx had them doing back and forth led to said villain being able to slip away many times. Big LOL at the fake gospel music they played at the end in the signature, “helluuuuuur.”

It’s definitely nice to see Foxx get back into his sketch comedy brilliance from way back when, as being a huge Academy Award winning actor has pretty much left him doing serious roles only. But I’m also wondering if Perry thought the skit was funny, considering he and Foxx are presumably cool with one another (Foxx said he talked with Perry when considering whether or not to do Django Unchained). Either way, Perry can’t deny that homeboy had the Madea voice down pat! Check out the clip from Saturday’s episode and let us know if you agree!

    Was I the only one who thought the concept of this was funnier than the execution?

  • YES!!!!!!

  • Foxx jthinks that killing all White people would be great. Sounds like genocide. Anti-racist is just a codeword for anti-White.
