Two years after pleading guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown is to star in a romantic comedy. The R&B singer has been cast in Think Like a Man, a film adaptation of a self-help book by comedian Steve Harvey.
The original title of Harvey's book was Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment. Published in 2009, it briefly bumped Twilight author Stephenie Meyer from the top of the US bestseller list. While Harvey's tome is non-fiction, the movie version will transform his advice into a quirky love story starring Brown and actor Gabrielle Union.
