Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in Urban Myths

The First Footage of Joseph Fiennes Playing Michael Jackson Is Here and Oh No

When it was announced that Joseph Fiennes would play Michael Jackson in a British TV series, the internet, understandably, exploded. Hiring a white man to play a black man in the height of #OscarsSoWhite incited a digital riot, and nearly a year after the news, a teaser is here to remind us all that this was indeed a terrible, terrible idea. The episode, part of a series called Urban Myths airing on Sky Arts, is about a rumoured road trip that Jackson went on with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after 9/11. I'm just going to leave this video here, along with a picture of Fiennes on the red carpet. Do with this what you will.
