"Sky Arts gives producers the creative freedom to cast roles as they wish, within the diversity framework which we have set."

Unlikely, indeed. For some observers, it's unbelievable for other reasons, especially now.

Scottish actor Brian Cox, 69, will play Brando and American Stockard Channing, 71, will play Taylor.

"While the premise of the film sounds like it could give a rare and fascinating glimpse into Jackson’s private life, one can’t help but be stuck on the fact that one of the greatest African-American musicians of all time will be played by a white man,  "We are truly at a loss for words."

Some Of Michael Jackson Fans were not happy about the new, Considering this to be whitewashing.
