Romcom role for singer Chris Brown
Chris Brown will be coming to a cinema near you in a romantic comedy next year.
The singer and actor will star alongside Steve Harvey, Gabrielle Union, Oscar-nominee Taraji P Henson and Michael Ealy in Think Like A Man - an adaptation of Harvey's best-selling advice book for women, Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man.
The casting is another sign of Brown's remarkable comeback since his 2009 attack on girlfriend Rihanna, for which he pleaded guilty to assault.
His album FAME has gone gold, and last week a record crowd of 18,000 fans showed up to see him perform on the Today show.
Brown has acted in other films, including Takers and Stomp The Yard.
Filming has begun in Los Angeles, and the movie is due out in April next year.
