Joseph Fiennes to play Michael Jackson in a film about an alleged road trip he took with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brandon


Earlier this week, It was reported that British actor, Joseph Fiennes has been asked to play Micheal Jackson in a film about the road trip he took from New York to Los Angeles with Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor after the 9/11 terrorist attack. Twitter exploded on Thursday  over the news. See tweets below.

Fiennes addressed the backlash saying, “I’m a white, middle-class guy from London,” the 45-year-old actor told Entertainment Tonight about being cast in the role. “I’m as shocked as you may be.” He continues, “[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.”

Hmm…How can we begin to explain this one?
