Actor Brian White doesn’t mind playing the deadbeat and other roles that are sometimes stereotypical.
The Good Deeds star said he enjoys the challenge of taking on parts that aren’t at all like his real self, and working with Tyler Perry in three films has given him that opportunity.
Unlike the characters he played in Daddy’s Little Girls, I Can Do Bad All By Myself and Good Deeds, Brian, a newlywed with five younger sisters, knows how to respect women.
While some criticize such roles for reinforcing negative stereotypes, Brian said Tyler does the Black community a service.
“These are very, very, very important characters to be out there and discussed. They’re not —I don’t want to use the word ‘stereotype’—but I see lots and lots and lots of guys like those three guys,” he told Sister 2 Sister.
