Lance Gross

*Blackfilm.com has confirmed that Lance Gross, Vanessa Williams, and Robbie Jones have been added to Tyler Perry‘s latest film, “The Marriage Counselor,” joining Jurnee Smollett and Kim Kardashian.

“Headed to Hotlanta to meet mogul Tyler Perry for the 1st time & get fitted for a role in his new film. I’m sure fashion will be fab!,” stated Williams on her Twitter account.

Based on his stage play, the film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake.

As previously reported, Jurnee Smollett plays the marriage counselor and Kardashian will play Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a big city makeover and new confidence as she struggles with her personal issues.

Gross will play the role of Brice, Judith’s husband, while Williams will play her mom.

Perry and partners Ozzie Areu and Paul Hall are producing “The Marriage Counselor,” which began shooting in Atlanta  this week.
