Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/20/2015 --Barry Ratcliffe joins the cast for the confessions episode of the prolific writer, director, and producer Tyler Perry on "The Haves and the Have Nots' starring John Schneieder.

Barry is guest starring as the owner of a local pawn shop when his character gets involved in selling a gun to the unstable and unpredictable Amanda, daughter of the rich and powerful Cryer family, who is out for revenge for an attack by her professor.

"Amanda, played by Jaclyn Betham is a truly gifted actress" says Ratcliffe "and amazing to work with. And don't get me started on Tyler Perry. Forget the cliche rags to riches, homeless to billionaire, he directed my episode and he was by far, hands down, the best, most efficient, professional, and talented director I have ever worked with, and that includes Oscar and Emmy winners from this year alone. My time and experience on the set of Tyler Perry studios is a lesson and a gift that I will never forget."
