Actress Spends $1,500 on Billboard to Get Tyler Perry to Cast Her as “Leading Lady”


Well, that’s one way to audition.

Aspiring actress Racquel Bailey is so desperate to break through, she spent $1,500 on a billboard to get movie mogul Tyler Perry’s attention.


The giant ad, placed near Perry’s studios in Atlanta, features Bailey’s headshot and the message, “Attention: Top Film Maker In ATL – Let Me Be Your Next Leading Lady.”

“It’s all that I had,” Bailey says of the money she spent on the ad, explaining, ”I believe in myself so much that I will take this risk.”

She tells the NBC affiliate in Atlanta, “I figured on his way to work or from work, he will see it, or someone who works with him will see it.”
