After stints as an undercover grandmother and an undercover nanny, FBI agent Malcom Turner (Martin Lawrence) adds "undercover housemother" to his resume in the upcoming Big Momma's House 3. An acting and plot stretch, for sure.
This detail comes courtesy of a recent casting notice. Apparently, Big Momma is hired by the Headmistress of the Atlanta Girls' School for the Arts. Why exactly the school needs an undercover housemother remains to be seen. There's a quick mention of Malcom trailing Russian mobsters, but are they working out of the school?
One thing is clear, though. Lawrence won't be the only one appearing in drag. Included in the casting notice, is this gem:
NOTE: Trent and Charmaine are the same character. Must be able to sing, dance, and rap.
It seems Malcom's stepson is all grown up and getting into trouble. Now a "17-year-old aspiring rapper," Trent witnesses a murder by said mobsters and is forced to go into hiding at the arts school. Should we take this to mean that Jascha Washington can't sing, dance, and rap? Or that he doesn't want to perform in drag? Posted 01.13.10 by reelz
