Months ago, we discovered that a white British actor named Joseph Fiennes would be portraying Michael Jackson on a U.K. TV show. Now, the trailer for the program has been released and many MJ aren't feeling it.
Originally entitled "Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon," the show is now called, "Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies." The series recreates "true…ish stories" involving celebrities that are now seen as urban legends.
In the trailer, Fiennes does his best to show MJ as a soft spoken, timid, yet adventurous personality; as he travels on a cross country journey with Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. This was actually rumored to have happened after airports where shut down after 9/11.
"This is territory that is sensitive," Fiennes previously said, when he first received backlash for playing the pop star. "One must determine if this portrayal is one that is going to be positive entertainment, and one that will not bring about division and put anyone's noses out of joint, so I went with the mind that this was a positive light-hearted comedy."
Take a look at the trailer above and tell us what you think about it.
