Brady ‘Perfect’ for indie laffer

Poitier, Cho to star with talk show host in feature debut

HOLLYWOOD — Talkshow host Wayne Brady will make his feature debut in the indie romantic comedy “I’m Perfect,” starring alongside Sydney Tamiia Poitier.

Also starring are Brad Dourif, Margaret Cho and Malcolm Jamal Warner.

Pic began lensing last month in Los Angeles.

Brady will play Lewis Bonds, a talented young advertising exec who, disillusioned with the dating scene, compiles a list of attributes of his ideal woman and sets out to find her.

Brandon Sonnier is helming the pic. His debut effort, 2003’s “The Beat,” made him the youngest director to ever compete in the Sundance Film Festival.

“I’m Perfect” was written by tyro Marcus Folmar.

Producing are Alex Ross of rossWWmedia Corp. Prods., Diane Nabatoff of Tiara Blue Films and Duncan Napier-Bell.

Fred Kuehnert and Peter Heller are exec producing.

Brady, who scored two Daytime Emmy awards for “The Wayne Brady Show,” which ended its run at Buena Vista last year, has appeared on “Chappelle’s Show,” portraying himself as a drug-dealing pimp.

He also stars in ABC Family’s improv comedy show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”

Last year he played Billy Flynn in “Chicago” on Broadway.
