Prince Michael Jackson new ET correspondent

Entertainment Tonight hired the late Michael Jackson’s eldest son, Prince Michael Jackson, 16, as their newest correspondent. His first interview, aired last night, was with the men of Oz: The Great and Powerful – director Sam Raimi, actor James Franco and Zach Braff. His father, coincidently, played The Scarecrow in The Wiz, the 1978 film by Sidney Lumet that was based on The Wizard of Oz. Prince aspires to be “a producer, director, screenwriter, and actor.” He asked during his interview what tips and advice they could give him on how to break into the industry. Franco answered, “I always tell people, just go out and try, and stop waiting around or dreaming it’s going to happen. Just go and start doing things on your own.” ET‘s Brooke Anderson, who mentored Prince for his interview, commented how he seems to be wise beyond his years. Jackson responded, “That’s what most of my people say. That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right.” ~Eloisa Guevarra

    I agree with above. I did watch him…he appears a nice young man, but he is not ready for this job.

    He may be wise, but he IS young. It’s because his name is Jackson… get away with anything.

    Prince Michael had no control of his back ground so give the kid a break. At least he is doing something and trying to go in the right direction. He could become another spoiled rich brat.

    I’m sure his father Arnold Klein is very proud of him.

    16 year olds should be in school. That’s the right direction.
