Joseph Fiennes Will Play Michael Jackson in a 9/11 Movie

Joseph Fiennes is reportedly set to play the late pop icon Michael Jackson in a movie taking place right after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The 45-year-old actor will star in the Sky Arts television movie that follows the singer’s attempt to get home from New York City after the attacks, according to The Guardian.

Michael reportedly took a road trip with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando following 9/11 and they got all the way to Ohio in a rented car. The film will be based on a Vanity Fair article about the road trip.

Stockard Channing is set to play Elizabeth Taylor while Brian Cox will play Marlon Brando.

    How greedy the producers can be to come up with such ideas…
    I won’t be surprised, if there will be aliens or zombies crossing the road. Facepalm.

    Why not? He had a skin condition that isn’t even that uncommon. I’m sure there’s a black actor with vitiligo around they could’ve cast instead.

    The story’s not even true. According to Debbie Reynolds, neither she nor Liz could get a plane out of New York, so they bunked in together at a hotel. And ET prevailed upon ex-husband Sen. Warner to get her and Debbie a private plane back to CA.

    FOr a second I thought I was gonna read Stockard will play LaToya and Brian Cox will play Joe Jackson … I mean, if they are going to go to a level of stupidity to cast a WHITE actor to play an AFRICAN AMERICAN lets go all the way

    Maybe Jennifer Lawrence can play Janet Jackson

    Lol. Well they want ” diversity” ..they can stick up their azz and smoke it … Can’t always mean less white more black.

    What’s more poetic, than a white man playing a person who spent his life trying to be a white man, Jackson would approve , look at his kids.

    Michael Jackson, if they do flash backs, a black guy can play the younger Micheal , before the skin bleaching , wigs, 10 nose operations, chin & cheekbone implants and drawn on eyebrows and lips.

    None of those actors look like those celebs. They should have just made a road trip movie without those celebs involvment.
