    Nah...he would've been way too old. He was playing mj 1984 in his 20s in 1991-1992. So he would be around 40 - 50 years old today

    How old was Michael in the bodyguards' book? 48-50?
    Suzanne made an excellent choice with Wylie. I hope she does as well this time. So glad SHE'S the one doing this and hope she doesn't disappoint.

    I loved the book by Bill and Javon - very honest, enlightening and sweet to read.

    I'm wary about this, but I won't give a definitive "NO" until I see the casting.

    Oh yeah Wylie Draper, if he's still alive today he would love to play Michael again, he's the best gang Michael he played. Still it's too bad he's already gone years ago.

    i'm sure it will be bad, if it happens at all, but oh well, at least this time they picked a decent book.

    I highly doubt Wylie would have been chosen for this project.. We have no idea where he would have been in his life, how he looked, or his capability to play MJ in that type of feel.. The role of MJ in the 80's on American Dream was not an indepth look into the mind of Michael.. It takes a different type of acting and thought process to portray the mentality of a person instead of sectional moments.. (burn/Motown 25/ little studio moments/victory on stage)..

    In my personal opinion the only person I can see do a 50% at least is E'cas.. Him on blossom for example was a little glimpse of him capturing MJ a little.

    True but who knows had he still been alive he may have been able to pull it off

    Their all jumping on the bandwagon.

    Navi (the MJ impersonator) is going to play MJ in this.
    It's said that filming will begin next month.

    I hope it ends up good, but If it ends up bad I'm glad it's just a lifetime movie.
    I doubt people will pay much attention to it years or even months after it's release considering it's not a big project or anything like that.

    Overall I'm pretty meh on the whole thing, and probably won't be tuning in myself, but I'll come here for all the info I need.

    Michael Jackson Getting the Lifetime Movie Treatment Based on Bodyguard's Account of His Final Days

    by CHRIS HARNICK | Fri, Jan 13, 2017 1:30 PM


    Michael Jackson is getting the Lifetime movie treatment. Lifetime announced Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland (working title), a new flick based on the best-selling book Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days. The movie is told through the eyes of Jacksons trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard.

    Navi, who Lifetime calls the world's No. 1 Michael Jackson tribute artist will star as the King of Pop. This is his acting debut. The Walking Dead's Chad L. Coleman will play Whitfield.

    Filming is expected to begin in Los Angeles in February.


    Suzanne de Passe, who also worked on The Jacksons: An American Dream, will executive produce with Madison Jones and Robert Teitel. Dianne Houston is directing a script from Beauty Shop's Elizabeth Hunter.

    Navi and Jackson crossed paths before. According to his official site, Navi was previously used by Jackson to promote concerts and albums or as a decoy with the press.

    Michael Jackson has been in the news lately thanks to Urban Myths, a Sky series that was to feature an installment with Joseph Fiennes playing Jackson alongside Brian Cox as Marlon Brando and Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor. The story behind Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon? A rumored road trip the three stars took after the September 11 terrorist attacks, attempting to get from New York City to Los Angeles. Following public outcry from Jackson's family, Sky has canceled the TV movie.
    "We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon, a half hour episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson's immediate family," the network said in a statement. "We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offence. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision."

    Lifetime's Michael Jackson flick is just the latest in its series of movies based on pop stars. Britney Ever After, the Britney Spears movie, is coming in February and previous movies have focused on Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton and Aaliyah.

    Does anyone know how good or bad Lifetime's track record is when it comes to celeb biopics?
    Do they do a good job, a cringeworthy job, or somewhere in between?
