Lifetime’s Michael Jackson Movie Casting Call

MICHAEL JACKSON PROJECT – LIFETIME MOVIE (LOS, ANGELES)

Location: Los Angeles
Start Date: Approx. February 1, 2017

[ MICHAEL JACKSON ]
Looking for someone to play Michael Jackson in the last three years of his life as he deals with family, fatherhood, and a potential run of concerts at the O2 Arena in London. Though guarded and sometimes paranoid, a good dad who cares deeply about his children, the iconic entertainer seems at times to just want to be a regular guy who can take his kids to the park or a mall without it turning into a mob scene…LEAD

[ BILL WHITFIELD ]
40s, African American, rock solid inside and out, built like a gladiator, confident, capable, strong, likable, decent, Bill is in the Executive Protection business, which means he’s in charge of security for extremely important and highly visible VIPs who require meticulous, thorough and sometimes creative attention to detail every time they leave their homes. The single father of a 12 daughter, Bill is stunned when he’s hired as head of security for Michael Jackson in his new Las Vegas home, and he takes to his new job with characteristic focus and dedication. Working well with his new partner, Javon Beard, Bill, though always professional, becomes something of a friend to Michael, and sees in him a desperate longing to be a “normal” dad who can take his kids out to normal activities without incident. In the two years that Bill works for Michael Jackson, he endures some ups and downs but winds up becoming attached to the family–despite his acknowledgment that that’s a breach of security protocol…LEAD, PLEASE SUBMIT ACTORS AT LEAST 6 FEET TALL.

[ JAVON BEARD ]
African American, male, late 20s, tall and lanky, with attitude, likable, a person of integrity, Javon is a security guard partnered with Bill Whitfield to protect Michael Jackson and his family; this is his first high profile job. Ordered not to reveal who he works for, Javon is hard-pressed to keep the secret from his pregnant girlfriend, who wonders who his boss is when he’s out working till all hours. Like Bill, Javon becomes attached to Michael and his family and is very protective of them…LEAD PLEASE SUBMIT ACTORS AT LEAST 6 FEET TALL.

[ PARIS ]
8 years old, female, Paris is Michael Jackson’s daughter.
