In addition to his reporting job for Entertainment Tonight, apparently late pop legend Michael Jackson‘s eldest son is headed to the famous Beverly Hills zip code for his first acting job. According to reports, Prince Michael Jackson is set to make his television acting debut on The CW‘s 90210 later this year in the show’s season finale episode.
His character will be a trauma victim named Cooper who bonds with Jessica Stroup‘s character Silver over their shared epiphany about how delicate life is. No word on if the two will get romantic on set or not, here’s hoping though (that could be really awkward). Prince is only 16-years old and as we reported, took up a reporting gig for Entertainment Tonight interviewing the cast of Oz the Great and Powerful. Considering his father had starred in “The Wiz,” they felt it was the perfect first assignment for the teenager.
In an interview with ET‘s Brooke Anderson, Prince Michael said, “I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor.” Prince will film his 90210 guest spot this week.
How do you think Prince Michael will do at acting?
