    His glove? That's certainly an odd choice.

    I’m sure Bubbles has many a tale to tell.

    As long as Depp himself is just producing.

    A biopic of MJ would be fascinating IMO.

    Jesus. Multiple levels of wrong. Maybe someone will think that's hilarious. On paper is one thing, but telling that story with actors in those roles could be a recipe for disaster.

    There should be MC Hammer showing up when little kids are around and he can sing "Can't touch this"

    Also who else had the the thought when they saw the title that Depp was going to play MJ himself? At least the older white MJ. :D

    I don’t see this getting off the ground. For one, the glove thing is too weird. Plus, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t with casting Michael Jackson. If you go into his later years, you either cast a white guy or you put a black person in white face. Either way will cause controversy just like that anthology show a few years back where they cast Joseph Fiennes as a post-9/11 Michael Jackson.

    So it's this but with a glove instead of a clone?

    I came in expecting to see that Depp was playing Jackson.

    Now I’m disappointed

    For those who prefer to comment rather than read the article: no, Johnny Depp isn't playing Michael Jackson, and b) per the linked article it's a stage musical, not a movie (although an unrelated MJ film is mentioned in the article).

    ...I nominate this guy for the part. He has the experience for such a unique acting role:

    Not one single comment about the poor glove being traumatized by all the crotch grabbing? I am disappointed, TFW2005. :p

    If this movie isn't titled "Shemone, Hee Hee!", I'll riot.
