Tyler Perry is Done Playing Madea after 20 Years

Tyler Perry has played the character of Mabel "Madea" Simmons for almost two decades, but the actor and director has revealed he's done. However, Perry said that "it's time to kill that old b****", to Bevy Smith on SiriusXM.

Madea was 68-year-old when she made her theatrical debut 20 years ago in the stage play I Can Do Bad All Myself.

The New Orleans-born, Atlanta-based showrunner masterminded Madea as a "PG version" of his mother and aunt back in 2009, and she'll be put to rest a decade later in A Madea Family Funeral hitting theaters March 1. The film mogul, who has been playing Mabel Earlene "Madea" Simmons for almost 20 years, announced that he is bidding the character farewell and putting away his gray wig, glasses and long floral dresses.
