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.

    Stockard Channing can do no wrong–and has been watchable dating back all the way to “The Girl Most Likely”; Fiennes and Cox are very good, too.

    But if this production is based on the Zadie Smith short story, we’re wondering where the laughs are going to come from.

    As written, it seemed to rely an awful lot on the sight-gag premise of three eccentric superstars of the last century, sharing a rental car, and scarfing fast-food.

    Too bad Carrie Fisher isn’t around to punch-up the story, which she did often for weak scripts (most often uncredited by her choice, but not unpaid! 😀 )–for years.

    Nobody is interested in the Jacksons since 1970’s.

    All the usually PC outrage will simply make this a cult classic. Considering MJ was working towards making a film staring as Edgar Alan Poe (a white man)just before he died , its a bit rich to be outraged over a white man playing him.

    Pervert Michael should be hanging by his little bleached balls in Neverland.

    Can you say Culkin!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
