Who should play Michael Jackson in the inevitable Bio-Pic?

I think the kid from RAY could probably play Michael as a child and then I'm thinking maybe Hilary Swank would play him as an adult -- though her skin may be too dark. Any other good suggestions?

I doubt that any Jackson film will be in the works anytime soon.

One of the Wayans.

Or Samuel L. Jackson for comedy effect.

Culkin's an actor remember. He can play himself. Ditto for Feldman

No one could ever effectively portray the beast that Micheal Jackson has become.

Not that he would ever do it, but I think Johnny Depp would make a great Michael Jackson.

John Hensley. Could he do the voice, I wonder?

It's a difficult role. Skinny black man with a great voice and a wonderful dancer, with an elf-like nose? That's a challenge!

Yeah, like Scooby-Doo, I think you'd have to go CGI.
