The viral star's 15 minutes of fame aren't up yet.
Antoine Dodson became an Internet celebrity when a news clip of him talking about his sister's assault went viral (remember "hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife"?), but Dodson seems to be going from momentary sensation to legit actor. The 27-year-old landed a part in Tyler Perry's upcoming holiday film,Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, he confirms to HipHollywood.com.
While Dodson won't spill any details about the size and scope of his role, he will star opposite Chad Michael Murray, Tika Sumpter and Perry himself in the film, which hits theaters on December 13. "I’ve been working, putting in work,” Dodson said.
“It’s so crazy, he’s serious about his work,” the Internet star said when asked what it was like working with Perry. “I love being around him and the cast. Everybody was so great. They treated me like I’ve been doing this for years.”
Dodson recently made the news again when he announced he is straight and expecting a baby with his girlfriend, despite previously identifying as gay.
