This is some film called Student Confidential. I've never heard of it, but it looks kinda weird, going by some of the other clips (Marlon is not in them). He looks a little like Jackie Wilson here.

That... was weird. lol. I'd heard about this. He looks different without his mustach. I'm not used to seeing him without one. He looks more like he did when he was a child.

I've found another Marlon clip. According to an review of the DVD, Marlon is playing a computer nerd, and the other guy is some kind of a weird school counselor/shrink. The film came out in 1987.

On a related note, how did Mike get in this?:

According to the reviews I've read, the movie itself is bad, lol. I guess that's why no one was aware it existed. I just accidentally stumbled on it on youtube. There's all kinds of obscure stuff on there.

Yeah, there sure is. I've heard of this film before, I can't remember where, but I knew Marlon had been in a film called "Student Confidential". It looks like a D-Grade kind of film though, lol.

Mike has turned down many movies throughout his life.. I don't think 'nice' is really the reason.. Though the director and him are friends..

Maybe Mike was just um.... board??


I think of it the same way as when he lends his voice to cheezy songs for other artists.

Yeah, he's being nice, lol. It's not like he would do it to further his career, since he knows it isn't going to have that affect. But he knows it'll help whoever asked him to appeare. He's turned down starring roles. A cameo can be seen as a favor or, being nice, lol.

Well I can tell you Michael's 1 minute of acting is still better then Marlon's entire performance. I mean, dang Marlon, lol.

yes, it's on DVD. i'm not sure what it's about.. ?? i could not fathom it out.
it's about a bunch of high school students. it's very weird. no plot or anything.
it's beyond terrible and i don't think it ever was meant to be released. but after the Victory Tour sombody put it out because of the Jackson connection. it was apparently filmed throughout 1982 - three years before it's release. Marlon is just crap in it. and i Love Marlon.

That's a shame because marlon is such a good actor. I'm going to check the free film website to see if it's on there.

if anyone's seen Zoolander when Will Ferrell has a little moment with his gay assistant, this beats it.
