In WTF news for the day a caucasian man has been cast to play Michael Jackson in a new TV movie. Yup…a white guy!
Actor Joseph Fieness will play MJ in a UK film.
After being originally announced in December, Fiennes has now described the script as “a challenge”, adding: “It’s a fun, lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek road trip of what celebrity of that kind is like. But also it’s rather beautiful and poignant about their relationships.”
The half-hour comedy will be written by Neil Forsyth, who wrote – as alter ego Bob Servant – Delete This at Your Peril, a collection of humorous email conversations with would-be con artists and spammers.
Hmmm…. well alrighty, then!
