According to the AJC, last month, the New Jersey-based actress decided to shoot her shot at being featured in a Tyler Perry production by renting out two billboards near Tyler Perry Studios in southwest Atlanta.

The bold publicity stunt cost her $2,000, and the signs, which featured a huge photo of her face with the message, “Attention Mr. Perry: Racquel Bailey is your next leading lady.”

The first billboard went up on May 6th and the second one went up the day after. By May 8th, Bailey says a casting agent from Tyler Perry studios called her, stating they were impressed with her initiative.

However, the film director is making it clear to aspiring actors that they don’t need to pay for billboards in his neighborhood asking him for a gig.

The director posted a photo of the billboard on his Instagram with the caption,

“Auhhh…. soooooo…… here’s the deal. This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows. Please DON’T DO THIS, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose.”

“I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite.”

 “Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION.”

 “God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!”
