Michael Jackson's Son Starts Career in Entertainment Journalism
Jackson junior, 16, who appeared quite nervous and confused at his late father's memorial service back in 2009, is now so confident that he has started interviewing major celebrities for the CBS news show.
His first task was to have an audience with Hollywood heavyweight James Franco, his "Oz the Great and Powerful" castmate Zac Braff and the fantasy flick's director Sam Raimi.
Entertainment industry journalist Brooke Anderson coached him for the interviews and from what she had to say on Twitter, it seems that the youngster did a very 'impressive' job.
Anderson felt that Jackson has an old head on young shoulders and the boy believes the credit for it goes to his dad. "That's what most of my people say. That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right," he said.
About his interviewing ambitions, Jackson revealed that he is a big fan of director Peter Jackson and would one day like to have a professional chat with him about his work.
About his idol's work, the young Jackson added: "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. 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.
"I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor."
