Colman Domingo has shared his views on being finalized for the role of Joe Jackson in the upcoming Michael Jackson biopic, Michael.
“I’m excited to be a part of a film that explores both the complicated soul of the legendary Michael Jackson and his impact on music and culture as a global icon,” said the 54-year-old actor in a press statement.
The actor, who is set to portray Michael’s father in the upcoming biopic, further commented, “Not only am I fortunate to have a rich, complex, and flawed character to portray in Joe Jackson, but I also have a front-row seat for Jaafar’s incredible transformation. After seeing him in rehearsal, my mind was blown.”
“There is something divine about the way that Jaafar is channeling his late uncle. His talent and embodiment of Michael’s essence are simply on another level,” Colman mentioned.
Michael is expected to release in cinemas in April next year.
