Larry the Cable Guy Joins 'Madea Christmas' in Beautiful Christmas Miracle


Turning his upcoming Christmas film into a powerful, holy celebration of peace and love between races, cultures, and catchphrase-spouting caricatures, Tyler Perry has added Larry the Cable Guy to the cast of his [Tyler Perry's] Madea Christmas.

According to THR, Chad Michael Murray, Tika Sumpter, and Kathy Najimy have also joined the film, which will see Madea exasperated by a different sort of wacky white person than in Witness Protection when she travels to a rural town filled with rednecks. L. T. Cableguy will play a family patriarch described as "quirky," what with his eccentrically bare arms and all. Chad Michael Murray will play a "town bully" known for domineering his wife and son; Sumpter will play the son's teacher, who gets into conflicts with Murray. Najimy's role is not yet known, nor is it known whether a "hallelujer" and "git-r-done" will ever ring out together, shouted Christmas bells chiming in the birth of Christ and quick death of subtlety. But what a Christmas that would be!
