Kim Kardashian just showed us.
A day after she turned 31 and we mocked this reality star for scarcely accomplishing anything in life that didn’t rely on her large boobs and marketing-savvy mother, Kardashian has landed a major movie role.
She will play one of the leads in The Marriage Counselor, Deadline reports, the next project written and directed by Tyler Perry. It is based on a play by the same name and centers around a twist on The Wedding Planner:
Jurnee Smollett will portray a marriage counselor who excels in her job, but not in her relationship. Kardashian will take on the role of this character’s friend, Ava. The movie starts shooting next week in Atlanta.
Perry, of course, has grown into one of the most successful and influential men in Hollywood. His films (Why Did I Get Maried?, Madea’s Family Reunion) typically cater to African-Americans, making Kim a natural fit. She knows all the ins and outs – ins and outs, ins and, oh yes yes, outs – of that community.
