With the entertainment industry currently embroiled in a debate over the lack of diversity in film, UK pay TV network Sky Arts may have picked the wrong time to announce that British actor Joseph Fiennes will play pop icon Michael Jackson in a new half-hour comedy special.
The project, “Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon,” will center around an unlikely road trip that Jackson and friends Elizabeth Taylor (Stockard Channing) and Marlon Brando (Brian Cox) allegedly took from New York to Ohio in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
In a statement regarding Fiennes’ casting, Sky Arts said, “‘Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon’ is a Sky Arts comedy which takes a light-hearted look at a reportedly true event; Joseph Fiennes is cast as Michael Jackson. It is part of a series of comedies about unlikely stories from arts and cultural history. Sky Arts gives producers the creative freedom to cast roles as they wish, »

Teen Wolf's latest episode is overstuffed with characters and unconvincing CGI, making it a rare misstep for the show...
This review contains spoilers.
5.12 Damnatio Memoriae
One of the rare places where Teen Wolf is let down is in the show's use of CGI. They do their best to keep it rare, to save it for sweetening moments, but very rarely do they just build creatures whole hog out of digital effects. That's probably a good move; if movies, which have tens of millions of dollars to spend, can't make convincing CGI creatures, why would a television show think they could shoot around digital effects? Teen Wolf indulges in it rarely, because it doesn't really work on their scale, and that's part of the problem with Damnatio Memoriae.
One of the things that the Dread Doctors have been attempting to do with all their experiments is to create the ultimate killing machine. »
