Michael Jackson

Lifetime Network released the full length trailer for the much-anticipated Michael Jackson biopic Searching for Neverland. The TV film is directed by Dianne Houston, and stars famed Michael Jackson impersonator Navi who has made a good living as the King of Pop over the years.

Navi actually does a pretty good job of bringing Michael to life on screen. But, like his idol, the ravages of years of plastic surgery has taken its toll on his face.

The biopic also stars actress Holly Robinson Peete as Michael's longtime publicist and manager Raymone Bain, who recently lost a lawsuit over money she claims Jackson wanted her to have for her years of faithful service. Unfortunately Bain forgot to get it in writing while Michael was still alive.

Former President Barack Obama honored Bain with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.

  • JV

    No, but Dwanye "The Rock" Johnson is beating Trump is a hypothetical 2020 match-up in the polls...


  • BacktolurkingIgo

    They shole ain't. Even their movies aren't as good as they were in the 90's

  • Keesh5000

    I was thinking Usher should try it. Now If Beyonce run.... Oh BABY!!! She gonna winnnnnn. Her campaign trail gonna be a tour... wonder what would she name it?

    On stage, Michael Jackson was wholesome, family entertainment. Off stage, he was a phenomenal freak show. If he had gone to jail for rape, maybe he'd still be alive.

  • dontgetblocked

    He does look like Michael. I guess I'll watch. It's sad that MJ became a joke in the end. Michael, Prince and Whitney ...the biggest stars of 80s are now dead and will be remembered as junkies. The price of fame.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    So you think they're going to watch, just to clown?
    Imma just let them fill me in, I get my daily fix from Black Twitter?

  • DaughterOfaQueen


  • Ni Ni

    That pic reminds me of that dang planet of the apes ape-woman ?.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I'm not agreeing with him looking like MJ, everything else is on point though.?

  • tintin

    oh boy. lifetime movies are a mess i.e aaliyah's movie. just horrendous

  • Ni Ni

    How many Michael movies out there? I watched the Jacksons movie and that was good enough for me. Every thing else was pretty much in the tabloids *shrugs*.

  • Lanegra??

    THANK YOU! I couldn't place where I saw that face before.

  • Lanegra??

    #neverforget This was by far the worst!

  • Lanegra??

    All I know is lifetime better leave Prince alone. I don't want no Purple Rain or Under the Cherry Moon remakes. Lifetime plays too much I would say it's a race thing but the Brittany Murphy and Brittany Spears biopics were actually worse than Whitney, Toni , Aaliyah

  • Ms..N

    LOL I remember that movie, terrible ,terrible,terrible..

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lol. He won't be impeached over a piece of paper that no one has seen. Keep dreaming though. ?

  • ShWa

    Will not be watching...sorry.....

  • Tahj

    Im not interested any more movies. BUT at least this is the real deal. that other impersonator looked like the mask.. Joseph Difenes or somthing https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4888f42ced67d53cf424a4c228bc70ac022c426cd595566293b4210286df2c55.jpg

  • Shira Harding-James

    I can't do this!

  • Miany

    I don't remember Prince as a junkie tho.. MJ either.. sadly Whitney's drug use was heavily documented... honestly, I listen to her and get sad about the loss of such an immense talent.

  • kitttykatlady

    Put a fork in it

  • LibraGirlonly

    Nope not for me. They got Mike looking like a monster.

  • Faundyb

    Whitney movie was ok, Aaliyah was aaight, this here looks awful! New Edition was good that was on BET.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Dude look like a muppet..

  • Gina

    So true!!

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    We need BLM to do something about this.....I mean....make an exception ....this is ridiculous....

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I think I'm going to wait for everyone else to watch it first then let the reviews determine if it's worth it.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I still haven't seen the Aaliyah movie.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yeah... ima do the same...

  • silverspirit

    He was such a gay white pedophile.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Prince had drugs stashed all over Paisley Park. He kept drugs in a black bag that he carried everywhere he went. He hid his drugs in Advil bottles so no one could easily identify what he was ingesting. Before he killed himself... and long before his addiction was revealed to the public... I tweeted him three emojis... ???. He blocked my account. Later, Prince gave a party at Paisley Park where he was said to be extremely irritable. That was the same event where he said, "don't waste your prayers." Some druggies hide their secrets better than others.

  • Miany

    I hear you Chicago.. I hear you. I am not saying he was not a junkie.. I'm just saying he will NOT be remembered as one.

  • silverspirit

    Said no one with a brain. He is still known as a pedophile who died a vile junkie in his own shat & pee molesting a boy doll. Sod off ly'n waste case.
