Michael Jackson Once Lobbied For the Role of Professor X in “X-Men”

We would have gotten a much different version of Professor Xavier in "X-Men" 2000 if this had happened. Could you see Michael Jackson in the role?
Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since 20th Century Fox’s first “X-Men” film hit theaters. Directed by Bryan Singer and written by Tom DeSanto with singer, this summer film was for some fans an introduction, and for others a live-action adaptation they had been waiting for.

It was also, for some of us, a HUGE disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, several of the casting choices were spot on- like Sir Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Ian McKellen as Magneto, and eventually Kelsey Grammer as Beast as well as Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler- but the rest? Eeeeeeh.

This is not to harp on a less-than-stellar cast, though. This is to share Hugh Jackman‘s adorable video post to celebrate the anniversary.

McKellen has also posted now.

So, maybe have your own Nerdbot Cinema tonight with “X-Men,” and take a look back at the superhero flick.
