Reality star and Yeezy’s main muse Kim Kardashian is ready for her close-up. The “Keeping Up” star has just released the trailer for the latest Tyler Perry flick, “Temptation.”
“I’m so excited to reveal the trailer for the new Tyler Perry movie I am in called ’Temptation,’ ” she wrote on her blog. “This has been an incredible experience for me and I’m so excited for the movie to come out on March 29, 2013.”
Kardashian fans will want to keep their eyes peeled on the first half of the trailer, which is Kim-heavy. Her voice-over opens the teaser. “We have a billion dollars walking in and out of these offices looking for love,” Kardashian, who plays a “Millionaire Matchmaker” type in the flick, says. While the film looks like it’s going to have its darker moments, Kim’s sassy barbs keep the vibe light.
“Friday Night Lights” actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell is told right off the bat by Kim’s character that she has to sex up her attire if she thinks she’s going to help pair up singles. Kim is already sexy enough in her body-hugging bandage dress. Perhaps she styled herself for the part?
As it turns out, when Jurnee’s nice girl Judith isn’t pondering Kim’s ability to breathe in bodycon dresses, she’s unhappily married but doesn’t know it yet. That is, until she meets a rich, hot potential client, whom Kim notes is the “largest social-media inventor since Zuckerberg.” (That line is particularly great.)
Eventually their flirtation turns into a full-blown affair, and that’s when the plot thickens, with the help of Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” playing in the background. The film features Lance Gross and Robbie Jones as the leading men, and Vanessa Williams and Brandy appear as well.
Kardashian was first cast in the film last November, and fans quickly wondered whether she could handle playing someone other than herself. Perry defended his decision to cast Kim in the film in a statement on his website. “I believe that my films speak from the inside out, why wouldn’t Kim Kardashian be invited into a film about Faith, Forgiveness and the healing power of God? What is wrong with that??” he wrote.
In addition to her part in the Perry flick, she will be back on the small screen this January for the latest season of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.” They started filming back in September. In addition to Kim and Kourtney, “X Factor” host Khloe will also be a featured player on the series.
