a year ago, it became clear that the british showman Joseph Fiennes, best known for his role as William Shakespeare in "Shakespeare in love", would portray Michael Jackson in the sitcom "Urban myths". The cast brought immediate criticism for Fiennes, who is white, would portray Jackson.
Joseph Fiennes, defended himself then by saying to Jackson as an adult had a skin color that "is more similar to mine than the one he was born with."
Now is the trailer to the "Urban myths" and the first pictures of Fiennes as Jackson. The programme was broadcasted by Sky art, and is about the myths about famous people’s life. In one of the sketcherna is Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando on the drive on september 11, 2001.
Other famous people as embodied in the satirprogrammet is Bob Dylan, Cary Grant, and Adolf Hitler.
