Prince Michael Jackson Makes Acting Debut

MJ’s son set to star on finale of "90210."

Prince Michael Jackson is following in the onscreen footsteps of his dad, Michael Jackson, and aunt Janet Jackson. The 16-year-old Jackson will be making his acting debut on the CW teen series 90210, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The eldest son of the late pop icon will play a character named Cooper, a trauma victim who comes to understand how precious life is. He will film his guest spot later this week.

This news marks a sort of a professional on-air coming out party for Prince. Just last week, it was announced that he was named an on-air correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.

“I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor,” Jackson told ET’s Brooke Anderson.

It appears that he may be well on his way. The son of the King of Pop is attempting to be the Prince of all media.
