It's funny ... two days ago, I happened upon old gossip about Keshia Knight Pulliam and wondered what ol' Rudy Huxtable was up to these days. Now Tyler Perry gives her a job. But there's still that whole issue that although she has a handful of post-Cosby work, everyone still sees her as Rudy. What seems to be the only way to fix this problem in Hollywood? Get naked, or take on a role where your character does. Yes, The Hollywood Reporter posts that the now 29-year-old actress is going to play a hooker in Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail.

She'll play Candy, a prostitute in prison who has become the unfortunate focus of a large fellow inmate named Big Sal. When Madea gets herself thrown in jail, she comes to Candy's rescue. Meanwhile, Derek Luke (Lions for Lambs) will play Joshua, a lawyer who "has a past" with Candy. Filming will begin next month in Atlanta, with release in early 2009.

Well, the days of young Rudy, Peter, and Bud are long gone, so now we get prostitutes. Really, I shouldn't be surprised. It's not like she hasn't posed for saucy photos before, in that classic attempt to prove she's grown up. But what about you? Are you ready for Rudy, the imprisoned prostitute?
