The most bizarre alien creature in the upcoming MEN IN BLACK 2 (2002) movie could well be King of Pop MICHAEL JACKSON. The THRILLER singer has been spotted visiting the set of the film, fuelling reports he may steal the limelight from one of prop designer RICK BAKER'S made up creations.
It is also being hinted that Jacko, who lives the life of a recluse at NEVERLAND RANCH, will contribute a song to the flick's soundtrack on the condition he could appear in the sequel. In the original film, the popstar was the punch line of a joke where TOMMY LEE JONES and WILL SMITH observe a monitor showing aliens living on Earth, and the OFF THE WALL chart topper's face appeared.
Jackson's label SONY deny he has a cameo in the film, but confirm he has been approached to record a song for the soundtrack. (JLM/WNWC2C/ES)
