Kim Kardashian has conquered the worlds of fashion, beauty and, of course, reality television.

Becoming a big time movie star could be next.

We kid you not...

"I think once people see the job that she did, they'll know that's very much possible," Tyler Perry told us last night at the L.A. premiere of his new flick Good Deeds.

The job he's referring to his her role as the coworker to a marriage counselor (Jurnee Smollett) who begins dating a client in his upcoming film The Marriage Counselor.

"Kim did a great job," Perry said. "I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised. I think that all of the heartache that I went through with the fans, I think they're going to understand once they see it."

As for what it was like working with Kardashian on set, Perry smiled, "Kim Kardashian in a movie called The Marriage Counselor going through what she was going through. I mean, what else can you ask for?"
