If you guessed that Paris Jackson's controversial Rolling Stone interview was her launching pad to TV and movie stardom, you guessed right.
Michael Jackson's only daughter has reportedly signed on to the cast of Lee Daniels' TV musical STAR.
The pretty 18-year-old is taking advantage of her famous last name to pursue her dreams to be an actress.
Jackson reportedly met with Daniels for a screen test last week -- and the test went well. It's a wonder that Tyler Perry didn't call her first to do a screen test for him.
Sources tells TMZ Paris is already filming in Atlanta, Georgia, but it's unclear if she'll have a cameo role or a regular part on the show, which launched last month to poor reviews.
STAR features acting veterans Queen Latifah, Lenny Kravitz, Benjamin Bratt, and Naomi Campbell, along with newcomers Jude Demorest (as Star Davis); transvestite Amiyah Scott, and singer-turned actor Quincy Brown.
According to WENN.com, Jackson has been taking acting classes for years.
