Chris Brown is an Actor Now

Chris Brown has been making a comeback. Ok, sure, he flipped out on Good Morning America and bizarrely took his shirt off for no reason in the middle of NYC, but other than that—huge comeback!

Brown is doing the ol’ music-to-acting transition, which most pop stars seem to have success with. He’s landed his first major movie role, an adaptation of a Steve Harvey novel titled, Think Like A Man.

It sounds like a 90 minute-long beer commercial, but the film is actually based on a self-help book by Harvey.

Chris costars in the movie with Gabrielle Union, and it’s being described as a quirky romantic comedy.

The plot revolves around four friends who find themselves shaken up when the women they’re chasing buy Steve’s book--Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment--and the ladies act on the advice in the book.

Some of the chapters include: How to spot a mama's boy and what, if anything, you can do about it," and: "The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?"

This sounds intriguing. Then again, I’m a woman. Our male readers probably stopped at “quirky romantic comedy.”

It’s his first big role, but Brown isn’t new to the acting game. He appeared in the dance movie, Stomp the Yard and a crime thriller, Takers.
