Joseph Fiennes On Playing Michael Jackson: 'I'm As Shocked As Yo
Joseph Fiennes admits it may seem odd for him to play iconic singer Michael Jackson in an upcoming British half-hour comedy special. The actor told ET about playing the King of Pop: "I'm a white, middle-class guy from London. I'm as shocked as you may be."
