Art is subjective, most times. Other times, certain things should never have been made. Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, the new TV movie that will air in the UK on January 19, is one of those things.
Joseph Fiennes stars as Michael Jackson - a terrible representation of the late legend - who takes a road trip with Elizabeth Taylor (Stockyard Channing) and Marlon Brando (Brian Cox) following the September 11 attacks in 2001. Fans who heard Joseph was playing the King of Pop were upset last year when it was first announced, but after the trailer's release, they now have reason to be mad. It's horrible.
"The decision with the casting and the producers — I wrangled with it," he said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter last year. "I was confused and shocked at what might come my way and I knew the sensitivity, especially to Michael’s fans and to Michael’s family. It doesn’t negate who he was."
