Tyler Perry Explains Why His Name Is In All His Movie Titles On 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Tyler Perry has been putting his name in the title of his movies for so long that it's become a part of pop culture. There are countless parody trailers of movies that start with "Tyler Perry Presents Tyler Perry In A Tyler Perry Film" and on and on. Jimmy Fallon asked him about it during Perry's appearance on "Late Night." Why does he do it?

"It seems like I’m an egomaniac," Perry admitted. "But really what it is, is, when I started, I was trying to get people to remember my name. I think I’ve gone overboard now."

Fallon told him, though, that people expect it now. Now he has to do it because that expectation has been created for his films. In honor of Perry as his guest, Fallon even joked they were going to rename the show "Tyler Perry's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, with Tyler Perry."

He's still at it with his latest film, "Tyler Perry's Temptation," featuring Kim Kardashian and currently scoring above 80% on Rotten Tomatoes. It hits theaters this Friday. "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. ET on NBC.
