Hmm. Not as stupid as many of these choices. Will.I.Am doesn’t look anything like MJ. A Wyclef Jean biopic, maybe. But not MJ. Also, I just realized I have no idea if he can sing or not. I’m guessing no.
Yeah, the guy from Footloose won’t be playing Michael Jackson. I saw a guy dancing at a bus stop while I was running yesterday. Should we put that guy’s odds at 50/1 because he dances?
As best I know Pharell has never starred in a film. Oh. Wait. He was in a 2009 episode of 90210 as 50% of N.E.R.D. He’s totally qualified to star in any movie ever.
Where’s Corey Feldman? Channing Tatum is like the 2011 equivalent of 1988 Corey Feldman, and the Feld-man dressed like MJ almost as a matter of course.
WE WANT FELDMAN! WE WANT FELDMAN!
Each name on this list is ridiculous in its own special way. If you have any god-awful suggestions, or actually good ones, toss them in the comments, and I will do my best to respond and tell you why you’re wrong.
