Michael Jackson


Born - 29 August 1958, Gary, Indiana, USA
Died - 25 June 2009

Eccentric music superstar, originally part of The Jackson 5 family singing group. As his skin grew paler over the years, his life became more bizarre, although the song hits continued, and he was ready for a comeback tour in 2009 when a heart attack felled him at 50. Films few, although he made a notable debut as The Scarecrow in the 1978 adaptation of the Wizard of Oz, called The Wiz. His 1983 video Thriller was a huge hit, as was 1987's Bad. But his last films were cameo appearances in Men in Black II and Miss Cast Away (2004).
