*During press rounds for the upcoming – highly anticipated film “Baggage Claim” – one journalist made the mistake of likening writer/director David E. Talbertand his casting choices to that of another successful black filmmaker and playwright, Tyler Perry saying, “I think you need to thank Tyler Perry because 90% of your cast pops up in Tyler’s work all the time and you managed to get them all hired in between doing something for him.”
