DID THE JACKSONS EVER HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR?
It had to happen eventually. Michael Jackson’s life was a windfall of fascinating stories and one of them was the legendary rumor that Michael, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando drove cross country together after 9/11. How delicious is THAT fantasy? A British TV comedy show appropriately called Urban Myths is reenacting their version of that event and Joseph Fiennes (who once played Shakespeare) is playing Michael Jackson. (Stockard Channing plays Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox is Marlon Brando.) We’re laughing already! Michael’s fans and relatives think it’s insulting to cast a white man as Michael, but a black actor would have to appear in white face, anyway! And this IS comedy, after all! We suggest the Jacksons withhold their outrage until they see the show.
