Oprah Winfrey joined the cast and crew on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere. Many of whom were making their feature film debut. SOUNDBITE: YouTube star and Actor, Yousef Erakat, saying (English) "What excites me most is the fact that he gave me an opportunity. He saw me as more than just a social media star, and saw that I wanted to be a traditional actor and gave me that chance to be here tonight. And working with him, it was just cool to see him do so much at once and keep his composure cool. So that was awesome to see." "Tyler Perry's Boo!
