Jaafar Jackson transformed into his uncle’s skin

Filming has already begun on “Michael” by Antoine Fuqua, which is scheduled for release worldwide in 2025. Online, a first image of Jaafar Jackson, nephew of the King of Pop and main actor, is turning heads.

Only a Jackson could have physically embodied to perfection the Jackson. In “Michael”, a biopic dedicated to the life of the King of Pop, Jaafar Jackson was chosen to play his uncle on screen. The first image of his transformation is finally here and the resemblance is uncanny.

Long curly hair tied back, V-neck top, light shirt and microphone in hand… Jaafar Jackson is transformed. In comments, Internet users wonder if it is indeed Michael Jackson’s nephew, and not the singer himself.

Who is Jaafar Jackson, ready to bring his uncle back to life?

Fans can rejoice: this time, we are sure that the Michael Jackson biopic has a major advantage to appeal to the family. If many have tried to embody the artist on the big screen, in vain (we remember Flex Alexander, in 2004), Jaafar Jackson seems to have already amazed everyone around him. Katherine Jackson, mother of the King of Poppraised the talent of the 27-year-old: “It’s wonderful to see him carrying on the artistic legacy of the Jacksons,” she told the “Hollywood Reporter”.

“When I arrived on set, I was so excited – it was like the first time I joined Michael on tour,” photographer Kevin Mazur said in a statement. “Seeing Jaafar play made me feel like I was going back in time. His appearance, his behavior, his mannerisms everything – It’s Michael. »

Quel casting ?

Son of Jermaine Jackson, member of the Jackson 5, Jaafar is a singer and composer who is struggling to find a place in the industry (despite his name which leaves no one indifferent). With this role in the cinema, he could well become the new darling of the Jackson clan.

Around him, the cast of “Michael” reveals itself more and more. Colman Domingo will play the cruel patriarch Joseph Jackson facing Nia Long, in the role of Katherine Jackson. Latest addition to the cast: Miles Teller. After “Top Gun: Maverick”, the actor tackles the biopic by playing John Branca, lawyer and manager of Michael Jackson.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, “Michael” is scheduled to hit theaters in 2025.
