BRITISH Actor JOSEPH FIENNES To PORTRAY King Of Pop MICHAEL JACKSON For BRITISH TV SHOW!!!

Premiere Screening Of FX's "American Horror Story: Asylum" - Arrivals

YES... you, u, You, U, and All of YOU did properly read the headline - WHITE BRITISH Actor JOSEPH FIENNES to PORTRAY BLACK King of Pop MICHAEL JACKSON For BRITISH TV COMEDY SHOW!!!

The GUARDIAN reports Joseph Fiennes will play the late superstar in a comedy to appear on the British channel Sky Arts. The half-hour show, called "Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon," centers around a fabled road trip in which Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando tried to get home to Los Angeles from New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

One of Jackson's former employees insisted to Vanity Fair in 2011 that the trip did happen and that the trio "actually got as far as Ohio -- all three of them, in a car they drove themselves!"

For some, the casting decision has been just as unbelievable as the idea that Jackson, Taylor and Brando (who supposedly insisted on frequent stops at fast food restaurants) would just hop in a car and take off cross-country.
As the debate rages on about the lack of quality roles for actors of color and thus the lack of representation at awards shows, one person tweeted, "Joseph Fiennes can play Michael Jackson. (A real person). But Idris can't play James Bond (a fake spy for a fake agency)?"

It just goes to show that when THEY decide to tell YOUR story, THEY can decide who THEY want to portray YOU in YOUR STORY, and; THEY can use the asinine justification of THEIR choosing to  make it make sense for THEM!!!
