    Default What actors can play Michael in a movie?

    assuming that a film was made about michael jackson that covered his childhood, his time of touring and until the end of his days choosing three different actors (one as a child, one for off the wall-thriller-bad and another for the era from dangerous until his death) what actors think they could play the role well and why? there are many new actors and I would like to know who you choose. but only actors, not imitators.
    I thought for the time dangerous-history-invincible and until his death that maybe Sendhil Ramamurthy could do well, also has a face with angled features like michael and dark eyes, black hair. I also happened to johnny depp but is too old to interpret the era of dangerous, history .
    I would like to know who you would put you to play michael in thriller-bad and who for his era dangerous-history-invincible-final years (assuming he is a unique actor for this time).
    put a photo or video of the actor that you think.
    The first that came to my mind was this, although I know that michael was very different physically, but I came up with this one, sure there are many others

    Danny Trejo?

    Noone really. It's not doable in a way that will do him justice.
    They should instead just make a really (I mean reaaally) good Docu film on his art and life that is 70% music / performanes to enjoy and 30% bits and pieces of his interview and good narration with infos about how much he moved the planet etc.
    Not gonna happen... I know.

    I'm probably not thinking with enough scope here but I can't think of anyone that could capture Michael's essence let alone his likeness

    No-one can. They'll either not look enough like him, or it will be close enough to look like some weird parody. He had such a distinct look, more than anyone else, that to portray him is impossible. Then there's the voice etc... I think it will all just come across as comical as practically any attempt has ever been. I think they'd need to focus on pre-Bad era to allow someone to resemble but not be exact.

    If they ever wanted to make a movie about him, I think it would have to be CGI (similar tech to how they make someone like Michael Douglas young in Ant Man, so I don't mean pixar animation).

    There can not be the same actor who can play Michael from both Thriller and History era, for example. It simply can't. I think Dangerous would be a turning point for change. We should not fool ourselves. Michael's physical change was drastic in those years. Can you imagine a black actor playing Michael from the 1990's or 2000's, with all the white make-up on his face? It would look poor, ridiculous and cheap... in the sense of production, of course.

    that's why I said that you have to look for three actors, one who plays his childhood, another who plays the thriller and bad era and a last actor who plays from dangerous to the end of his life.
    the last actor may be more white, not necessarily white but with a clearer skin.

    it's not about finding someone like him because that's impossible, in freddy mercury's movie the actor does not look anything like him, but he does a very good representation, that's what it's about, to do it seriously and put an actor who may have some similar trait (although he Will be different from him) but who can make a good movie.
    Assuming there is a casting for the movie that actors would call for the casting? There are many young actors who could maybe play the role

    Bruno Mars for Off The Wall - Bad eras will play Jackson in a new biopic.
    Born with Thriller,
    grown on Moonwalker,
    achieved with HIStory,
    living with
    Michael Jackson!

    Bruno is not a bad idea. He does a good impression of Michael, can sing like him and can even grow a fro.

    I guess if they had to do it, maybe they should go with someone relatively unknown who can also dance. He wouldn't necessarily have to sing. They could just use Michael's voice, and they can splice in some concert footage for Michael's more iconic dance moves. Of course all that would have to be Estate approved.

    I was also thinking of Bruno Mars, but he's not an actor, is he?
