First Look at Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson in 'Urban Myths.'
January 11, 2017
Sky Arts have officially debuted the first
official trailer for their upcoming comedy 'Urban Myths' that stars
Joseph Fiennes as the late great 'King of Pop' Michael
The British TV film stars Stockard Channing as
the great Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando and tells
the story of a fake road trip the trio had embarked on during the
real-life events of 9/11 terror
Last year, the film received harsh backlash and
possibly disapproval of a quote on quote "White Man playing the
King of Pop", Fiennes started to THR last February. The actor
stated that though the film is not a real biopic he really
understands why people are so mad. "The decision with the casting
and the producers -- I wrangled with it, I was confused and shocked
at what might come my way," Fiennes said, "and I knew the
sensitivity, especially to Michael's fans and to Michael's family.
It doesn't negate who he was."
The film will also star Eddie Marson as Bob
Dylan, Ben Chaplin as Cary Grant, Aidan Gillen as Dr. Leary, David
Threlfall as Samuel Beckett, Game of Thrones' Iwan Rheon as Adolf
Hitler and Rupert Grint as Hitler's very own
Urban Myths is set to premiere January 19 on the
UK's very own Sky Arts.
