Joseph Fiennes cast as Michael Jackson in UK series.

Fiennes stars with Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando in "Urban Myths," a series of "tru ... ish" stories including a fabled one in which the three stars supposedly took a cross-country road trip together after 9/11. Paris Jackson said she also took offense at the portrayal of Taylor, a good friend of her father's and her godmother. "It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother Liz as well," Jackson tweeted. "Where is the respect," she added. "They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal."


Looks like perfect comedy casting to me. bye.

p.s. UK just banned the episode since the Paris Jackson blasted the casting, so now the irony is that this film's physical whereabouts and digital ownership will be the new 'urban myth.' Life IS stranger than fiction and stranger than any of those 3 certifiable crazy folks riding in that car.
