From reality TV to the big screen!

Kim Kardashian has been cast in Tyler Perry's upcoming film, The Marriage Counselor, reports.

The flick, which starts filming next week in Atlanta, is adapted from Perry's play by the same name and depicts a newlywed marriage counselor, Judith (played by actress Jurnee Smollett), who's great at her job but struggles in her own marriage.

The 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will play the role of Ava, Judith's co-worker, who helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.

Although this is Kardashian's second big-screen gig, (she was also in Disaster Movie and Deep in the Valley), The Marriage Counselor is probably the most fitting, since she's a newlywed herself. (She tied the knot with NBA star Kris Humphries August 20).
