Retired basketball superstar Rick Fox landed a part in Tyler Perry's new movie when the writer/director almost ran over him on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Perry admits he'd just written a scene featuring Fox's character Harry in Meet The Browns when he went for a drive - and almost killed the ex-Los Angeles Laker. He explains, "I was coming out of my house after writing the first scene with Harry and I made a left on Sunset and Rick was in the crosswalk with his trainer; I almost hit him! "I pull over, we have a conversation, we exchange numbers and that's how the role came to be for him."
