Antoine Dodson became an accidental internet celebrity when a news clip of him talking about his sister's attempted rapist went viral. But now he's about to take a shot at mainstream fame with a role in an upcoming Tyler Perry movie.
Alabama native Antoine told viewers to "hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife" and quickly saw himself turned into a meme. Popular group The Gregory Brothers even remixed Antoine's quotes into a best-selling iTunes song.
The 27-year-old confirmed that he will be appearing in Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, which hits theaters on December 13. The movie has Tyler reprising his popular Madea role and co-stars Chad Michael Murray and Larry the Cable Guy. Antoine did not go into details about who is character is or how big the role is.
That's not the only project that the internet celebrity has in the works. Although he formerly identified as gay, Antoine has since announced that he is straight and expecting a baby with his girlfriend.
