Prince Michael Jackson to make his acting debut on 90210
The 16-year old son of the late Michael Jackson will guest star in the CW show’s fifth season finale as Cooper, a trauma victim who Erin Silver (Jessica Stroup) bonds with, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The acting job comes just one week after it was revealed the teenager had landed a gig as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
Prince Michael – whose father died from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 – hopes the job, will lead to a long career in the entertainment industry.
He said, “I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor.
“I’ve been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed.”
While Prince’s first interview was with James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi for their new movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, he’s hoping his next one will be with Peter Jackson as he loved to watch the director’s movies with his dad.
He explained, “Peter Jackson, I love his movies. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and King Kong. I just love the way he shoots (and how) he brings things and depicts it back to life. I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together.”
