While it's still early, I'd bet any amount of money that right now producers are tucked away in some Hollywood corner secretly discussing ways to bring Michael Jackson's life story to the big screen. After all, if thousands of Michael Jackson impersonators exist, surely there must be some well-known actor that could convincingly play the King of Pop -- but who?
In one post that's more jokey than it is serious, CinemaBlend give their actor picks based on different versions of Michael Jackson. For example, for "Free Willy & Final Years Michael", they say Eddie Murphy or Crispin Glover. The latter is such an odd choice it might even work. For "Thriller Michael", they throw out names like Damon Wayans Jr. and Andre 3000. My favorite, though, has to be their choice for "Little Jackson 5 Michael": Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith (he certainly looks the part).
What do you think? If they did decide to make a Michael Jackson biopic, who do you think should play the King of Pop?
In other Michael Jackson news, "The Simpsons" will honor the late singer by re-airing the 1990 music video for 'Do the Bartman', which was co-written by Jackson, prior to this Sunday's episode.
