Actor Brian White doesnâ€™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 arenâ€™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 Daddyâ€™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.
â€œThese are very, very, very important characters to be out there and discussed. Theyâ€™re not â€”I donâ€™t want to use the word â€˜stereotypeâ€™â€”but I see lots and lots and lots of guys like those three guys,â€ he told Sister 2 Sister.
