Have you ever dreamed of meeting and working with Tyler Perry? Are you an actress or actor that would love to audition for Tyler Perry Studios?

Well Tyler Perry plans to hold an open casting call for several of his TV shows and movies on the Tom Joyner’s The Fantastic Journey 2014 Carnival Cruise.

Currently, Tyler Perry does not know whether the part will be for his next film or for one of his TV shows, “For Better or Worse,” “The Have and the Have Nots,” or “Love Thy Neighbor,” all of which air on the Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN.

The Fantastic Voyage 2014 sets sail from Miami, Florida on the Carnival Conquest cruise ship and will head down to St Thomas, Virgin Islands March 16-23. The cruise benefits the Tom Joyner Foundation, which supports Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) with scholarships, endowments and capacity building enhancements. To date the Tom Joyner Foundation has awarded more than $65 million to support more than 29,000 students at HBCUs.

Tyler Perry plans to have a casting director on the cruise who will hold auditions throughout the journey.

‘I’m sure you will have a lot of people that will be good and a lot of people that will be like ‘what the h**l,’ Perry says. ‘But I have a rule – you have to audition after you have a few drinks. That’s going to really tell the truth right there,’ he says. ‘If you don’t drink, that’s fine, I want you have about 10 cups of coffee and four Mountain Dews and come on up there and do your audition.’

‘I’ve been on the cruise and I know how much fun that is. You know how you go through all week and all year? This is just a great time to let your hair down and have some fun for a great cause. If you don’t have hair, then let someone else’s hair down.’
