NEW YORK (AP) -- Rapper-turned-actor Romeo felt right at home working with Tyler Perry because he says the director reminds him of his father, rapper Master P. Romeo says his hip-hop artist dad and the writer/director have a similar work ethic and outlook on life. Perry directs and stars alongside Romeo in his latest comedy, "Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection," which is in theaters today. Romeo is trying to make the leap to full-fledged action hero. He says he's hoping to become "the next Will Smith" and nab roles in the upcoming "The Hunger Games" sequel and fourth "Transformers" installment.
