Prince Michael Jackson Named 'Entertainment Tonight' Correspondent
The 16-year-old son of the late pop singer makes his reporting debut on the syndicated show, first covering the junket for "Oz the Great and Powerful."
In a bit of unexpected TV staffing news, Entertainment Tonight announced Monday that it has made Prince Michael Jackson an on-air correspondent.
Just 16 years old, the eldest child of the late pop star started his new life as a member of the Fourth Estate over the weekend at a Pasadena junket for Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful.
"I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor," Jackson tells ET's Brooke Anderson in the first footage from his gig, airing during Monday's program.
Jackson's duties at the Oz junket included interviewing director Sam Raimi and actors James Franco and Zach Braff. He asked the trio for advice on how to get started in the entertainment business.
His status as a minor means that Jackson's appearances on ET will likely be few and far between, but the show's announcement promised his Oz reporting will be featured throughout the week.
