Tyler Perry may be best known for slapping on a dress and wig and calling himself Madea, but that doesn't mean he isn't up for chasing down a serial killer played by Matthew Fox.

In the first trailer for "Alex Cross," Perry plays detective ... Alex Cross (a role originally portrayed by Morgan Freeman in "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider"), who ends up in a cat-and-mouse game with a killer by the name of -- according to IMDb -- Picasso. (Can't wait for the line where Matthew Fox tells Perry that what he does to him will make Guernica look like a cakewalk.)

The film is based on the James Patterson novel, "Cross." You can check out the trailer above.

"Alex Cross," starring Perry, Fox, Jean Reno and Ed Burns, hits theaters October 19.
