I read this book. Idris Elba would of been perfect for the role. Why would Tyler Perry replace him? Sorry to hear this.

There is something wrong with this I, Alex Cross is not about the butcher of sligo. That book is entitled simply CROSS. Either these articles have things mixed up or they are taking creative liberties with the storyline. Tyler Perry does not make a good alex cross…. Let’s try the isah mustafah ( the old spice guy)….
