Joseph Fiennes Is Playing Michael Jackson

Joseph Fiennes

Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson. It’s 2016, so you know what that means. Think pieces. Twitter outrage. Normally this would be an issue, but I don’t think Sky Arts could afford to cast Nate Parker and pay for his facial reconstruction. I mean, Stockard Channing is one of the leads. This is probably only getting made because of GoFundMe. I guess they could have did him like Lupita Nyong’o in Star Wars, but again, that probably cost money.  And if we’re being honest with ourselves, nobody should be mad that a white guy is playing Michael Jackson. It’s what he would have wanted. 

Missed casting opportunity there, Sky Arts. Rose McGowan would’ve killed it (NSFW):
