Fresh from his “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent gig, Michael Jackson’s son, Prince Michael Jackson, will now test out his acting chops on the teen drama “90210.”
In the show’s fifth season finale, Jackson will play Cooper, a trauma victim who bonds with the character Silver, played by Jessica Stroup. He's filming for his role this week, the Hollywood Reporter details.
He joins one of many guests on the show’s star-studded season, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Ryan Lochte, Nelly Furtado, Carmen Electra, Ne-Yo, Denise Richards, Taio Cruz, Joey McIntyre and Terrell Owens.
Just one week ago, the 16-year-old did his first interview for ET, speaking with actors James Franco and Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi about their new film "Oz: the Great and Powerful."
With his role, Jackson is already living up to his extensive aspirations, which include being a producer, director, screenwriter and actor, as he told ET's Brooke Anderson last week.
Jackson also aspires to one day interview film director Peter Jackson. “I love his movies. 'Lord of the Rings,' 'The Hobbit' and 'King Kong.' I just love the way he shoots [and how] he brings things and depicts it back to life,” he told ET.
“I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together.”
"90210" airs at 9 p.m. EST Mondays on The CW.
