Chris Brown To Star In Romantic Comedy

It would have seemed improbable two years ago, but Chris Brown is coming to a theater near you in a romantic comedy.

The singer and actor will star alongside Steve Harvey, Gabrielle Union, Oscar-nominee Taraji P. Henson and Michael Ealy in "Think Like A Man." It's an adaptation of Harvey's best-selling book advice book for women, "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man."

The casting is another sign of Brown's remarkable comeback since his 2009 attack on girlfriend Rihanna, for which he pleaded guilty to assault. His album "F.A.M.E" has gone gold, and last week a record crowd of 18,000 fans showed up to see him perform on the "Today" show.

Brown has acted in other movies, including "Takers" and "Stomp the Yard."
