Tyler Perry Didn't Know He Cast the Woman Who Bought a Billboard to Get His Attention

Tyler Perry didn’t know he was hiring the actress who bought a billboard to get his attention when she landed a role in his new show!

The 50-year-old actor and director recently opened up about Racquel Bailey getting cast on his new show Sistas.

“That was scary as hell. I was really creeped out about it,” Tyler said of her billboard stunt.

He continued, “She auditioned. I didn’t even know it was her. I had separated the two in my mind. She got the job and after she gets the job, they tell me, ‘Oh that’s the girl from the billboard!’ I go, ‘What? Why didn’t somebody tell me!?’ It’s good that she’s good because if you put up a billboard and you suck, it’s not going to work.”

Tyler added that doesn’t recommend the billboard stunt for anyone else.
