While Michael Jackson is rightfully remembered as the King Of Pop, it turns out that the legendary performer actually had his eyes set on finding success way beyond music.
That’s because, despite finding tremendous success with the likes of Thriller, Bad, and numerous other albums and singles, Michael Jackson repeatedly put himself forward for a number of roles, only a handful of which he got. Of course, Michael Jackson did find some success with the likes of Moonwalker and The Wiz.
But he had his sights on even bigger roles, which it now turns out included X-Men’s Professor X. This revelation was made by David Hayter, the screenwriter behind the first X-Men film, which kick-started the franchise back in 2000, during his recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter.
