Chris Brown has landed a role in 'Think Like a Man,' an upcoming film based on comedian Steve Harvey's book 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment,' Us Weekly confirms.

For some people, Chris Brown would be the last person they would ever want to see cast in a romantic comedy focusing on relationships between men and women, given the singer's history of temper tantrums and his domestic abuse incident with Rihanna.

However, Brown has been eager to move into the film world, and perhaps the role will give him a chance to show a more sensitive side. Brown has previously acted in 'Stomp the Yard' and 'This Christmas.' Harvey's book was released in 2009 and reached the New York Times Best Seller List.

As Brown prepares for the new movie role, his music continues to soar. In 2011, he's racked up the hits 'Look At Me Now,' 'She Ain't You,' and 'Next to You' with Justin Bieber.
