46-year-old English actor Joseph Fiennes plays the late singer Michael Jackson in an upcoming segment of SKY ARTS’ program ‘Urban Myths.’
Fiennes co-stars alongside 72-year-old Stockard Channing as the now-dead Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox, 70, as another deceased actor Marlon Brando.
The movie tells the story of an alleged road trip the three took after 9/11! Althought Michael was born black and Fiennes is white, Fiennes defended the casting choice by telling Entertainment Tonight there’s nothing malicious about the casting and that Jackson “definitely had an issue, a pigmentation issue, and that’s something I do believe. He was probably closer to my color than his original color.”
