Jobless front got is the guy who portrays Michael Jackson he joins us on the air jealous welcome to the show. And listened to talk to me about what it feels like to portray somebody. As iconic and as talented as Michael Jackson. Oil and Italy kept impeachment announcement because today. Get to wake up in and played Kimmel iconic. Reform that ever walked. Different which is solution my projections it's that it's a privilege. It's a huge responsibility. But in LA actually have to put you know will be patient. Everything it it's unbelievable. You know it's and as as happy as it is I guess there's something sad about the fact that he's not not with this any longer but you you. I I've seen some some scenes and you do a phenomenal job of capturing Michael Jackson what was the biggest challenge for you. I can be challenged at the platform and Michael was you don't have to be which you look. The audience will formally. A lot of person in Eritrea August chief currency. You know some of them who reach the beach Indian and some of them being caught me. Canceled. Our sites say that it's an art to have at least act which would be the younger worker that book. Forum for myself and work the sport was actually singing you know because. Think you is that the an Arctic in itself let me try this thing ending. To get there is certainly. Something bird. Born in ending. Like Michael Jackson did. What possible punitive and so a lot of people considers in the traditionally. In a heated you know Putin being if you look like that dispute which seem to get we contributes. You never going to be for a copy of this actual you'd attribute to try to being looked like. And you know. Singled with salt and relive Ian machine comic. I mean person that you want. Where you're just the recipient they're scientists there this united tendency to be so critical I mean obviously you can't hit everything perfectly and Michael Jackson when he performed there were moments when he made mistakes during some of his performance is as well so. You know their criticism is just Eric is it is unfair. On so if you know you're you're not lip syncing this is not just this is not Michael this is you and the performers the dancers doing Michael Jackson. That is correct and that the name commercially caught him Cheney lies. Life because we don't think we don't track we don't do anything we have. Faulting and sixty cents all the actual and we do nineteen reject and so. You know a lot of it was simply can do this for the actual. No one has the longest capacity. To stay in their roles are little police or five hours that the single. But we do a lot of little bit teaching emotional criminal.
