Tyler Perry Joins Gone Girl

 Writer/producer/director/actor Tyler Perry arrives at a screening of Lionsgate Films' "Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family" at the Cinerama Dome Theater on April 19, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

He'll play Tanner Bolt, the celebrity defense lawyer hired to represent Nick (Ben Affleck)/ Meanwhile, Kim Dickens and Patrick Fugit have been hired to play the detectives, and Carrie Coon will be Nick's twin sister, Margo. Still no word on the girlfriend, which means it is not too late to hire Becky from Friday Night Lights. (Do you think David Fincher has seen Friday Night Lights? Discuss.)
