Tyler Perry recently talked to LA Daily News about working with Janet Jackson in his new flick Why Did I Get Married?. He explained that Janet would be showing off a different side of herself:

"She's playing a college professor. Actually, an author and professor of psychology. I can't wait for people to see her like this." Perry insists that Jackson has the ability to pull this off.

Why Did I Get Married? also features Jill Scott and Sharon Leal from Dreamgirls. Ironically, there will be no musical numbers in the film.

Look for the movie to be released around October or November.
