Alex Cross proved to be Tyler Perry’s worst box office opening ever, and the writers at Saturday Night Live are not going to let him soon forget it.

This weekend Jamie Foxx hosted SNL while promoting his upcoming revenge thriller, Django Unchained.

The In Living Color veteran, who is no stranger to sketch comedy, spoofed Perry’s role as Alex Cross by adding in a bit of his infamous Madea character.

The sketch, entitled Alex Cross 2: Madea: Special Ops, is a fake movie trailer where Foxx plays Alex Cross and Madea molded into one person, while chasing a ruthless killer.
