Michael Jackson's teenage son Prince makes acting debut on TV show '90210'


Prince Michael Jackson is to make his acting debut in an episode of American teen drama series 90210.

Michael Jackson’s 16-year-old son will play Cooper, a trauma victim who bonds with character Silver over “the realisation- at a very young age- of how precious life is”, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes just one week after Entertainment Tonight hired Prince Michael as an on-air correspondent.

The teenager made his on-screen debut last week alongside co-host Brooke Anderson and was clear he has plans for a career in showbiz. “I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor,” he told the programme.

Janet Jackson, Prince Michael’s aunt, also made headlines this week after it was revealed she secretly married Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana last year.

In a joint statement to Entertainment Tonight Jackson and Al Mana said their wedding was a “quiet, private and beautiful ceremony” and asked for their privacy to be respected.

Perhaps Prince Michael will be sent to interview her.
