Kim K. lands role in Tyler Perry film

Kim Kardashian had double the reason to celebrate this weekend: Her 31st birthday was on Friday, plus she landed a role in an upcoming Tyler Perry film.

The reality TV star tweeted the "big news" on her birthday, linking out to Deadline's report that the middle Kardashian was set to co-star in Perry's "The Marriage Counselor."

The movie will follow Judith, an Ivy League educated counselor who finds herself going against her own moral code. Bored with her marriage, Judith, portrayed by "Friday Night Lights" star Jurnee Smollett, cheats with one of her clients.

Kardashian will play Judith's co-worker, Ava, who helps Judith find confidence with a "big city makeover." According to Deadline, filming on the project begins in Atlanta on October 26. "It's gonna be such a fun experience!" Kardashian tweeted.

But before preparing for ATL, Kim K. hit up NYC and Las Vegas with family, friends and new husband Kris Humphries in tow.

E! News reports that Kardashian brought in her 31st year with a shindig at New York's The Derby on Friday before taking the party to Las Vegas' Marquee nightclub on Saturday.

    Kim Kardashian is stupid. All she wants is to be in the public eye. Typical narcissistic behavior. She never cared about Kris.

    Putting her in the movie is not going to get Tyler anymore white support than he have now , if this is the reasoning behind puting her in a movie some people could care less they still are not going to support or respond to your efforts,

    An actress who can act being directed by a director who is a hack. Sounds like a sure fire winner. Get the oscars ready.

      I agree. I don't care what it's about. I won't support his movies with likes of her. He can do so much better. Maybe Spike Lee was right about him.....

    "Friday Night Lights star Jurnee Smollett"

    Someone should have told her parents that Jurnee is actually spelled j o u r n e y.
