With her model looks and girl-next-door attitude, Denise Richards made a name for herself in the '90s as eye candy in "Starship Troopers," "Wild Things" and the James Bond outing "The World is Not Enough." She's acted in several comedies since proving her knack for them with "Drop Dead Gorgeous," and she continues that streak with this week's Tyler Perry vehicle "Madea's Witness Protection."
Richards plays Kate, the younger second wife of Eugene Levy's George Needleman. When George gets inadvertently embroiled in a Ponzi scheme, their wealthy family enters the protection of the working class and VERY volatile Madea (Perry). We recently talked to the still stunning 41-year-old Richards about improvising with Levy and whether Perry maintains his Madea persona while directing.

We wanted a father who was more like ones in movies. Why didn't we have a dad who built a magical baseball field, was fabulously wealthy, and who greeted crises with jokes, hugs, or lethal force instead of groundings?
We know our dads were cool, always there for us, and making us better people. We love them dearly. But in honor of Father's Day, here are 13 movie dads we still find ourselves admiring for their humor, cuddliness, special talents, and in some cases, bank vaults full of money. Get More »
Tyler Perry is back as Madea, and she's getting ready to whoop the some greedy one-percenter ass.
As the seventh in a series that may someday rival James Bond in numbers, "Madea's Witness Protection" is the latest opportunity for Forbes Magazine's highest paid man in entertainment to shake his moneymaker as Madea Simmons, the gun toting moral compass at the center of Perry's media empire.
Those who were in high school when "American Pie" came out in 1999 may be shocked to discover that not only have Jim, Stifler and the rest of the gang grown up, but so have you. That's right, you're all old-ass 30somethings, and you can learn to cope with it by watching the cast of your favorite teen sex comedy prove that even adults can still have fun in "American Reunion."
The class of '99 returns to East Great Falls for its big reunion, with Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) having settled into a life of marriage and kids that just might get a much-needed shot in the arm during the wild weekend. Thomas Ian Nicholas, Chris Klein, Seann William Scott, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Tara Reid, Shannon Elizabeth, Natasha Lyonne, Mena Suvari and, of course, Eugene Levy are all back for one last slice.

Hey, if it ain't broke… you know the rest.
And that's probably why Tyler Perry is gearing up for "Madea's Witness Protection" — the next installment in a franchise he writes, directs and stars in. (No, this isn't the flick with Kim Kardashian playing a marriage counselor… it's another one.)
Well, the auteur (can we call him that?) has named three of his next stars: Denise Richards, Eugene Levy and Romeo Miller. Get More »
