Urban Myths New Trailer Shows Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson
Actor Joseph Fiennes is portraying Michael Jackson in the most bizarre way in the new trailer for the Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies TV show. The anthology trailer shows Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor played by Stockard Channing and Marlon Brando played by Brian Cox embarking on a road trip after 9/11.
Fiennes commented on some backlash he got from fans accusing him of whitewashing the King of Pop. “I deal in imagination, so I don’t think imagination should have rules stamped on them,” the actor told Associated Press. “If it promotes stereotyping, then it’s wrong. I made a distinction that the Jackson project doesn’t do that.” The show premieres on Jan. 19 on U.K.’s Sky Arts.
