Michael Jackson Summons the ‘Harry Potter’ Cast. This Can’t Possibly End Well.
Is this a Hogwarts-approved field trip?
Michael Jackson has formally requested the presence of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley at the opening night of his London shows at the O2 arena.
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have been offered all-access passes to Jackson’s first show of his summer stint.
Cool or creepy? Don’t worry, they’re all over 18.
The Sun reports that Jackson—unsurprisingly, given his penchant for all things child-like—is a huge fan of the Harry Potter book and film series.
“He was utterly enchanted by the magic of JK Rowling‘s novels. The tales of Harry and his pals in the books gripped him, he has followed them all religiously. He is a big admirer of the films too, he owns all the movies and he has bought memorabilia for his collection,” a source says.
And don’t think MJ is just being charitable. He has an ulterior motive.
The report suggests that he is looking to be invited as a guest at the premiere for the final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
What, he’s not bucking for a guest role? Jack-O would fit right in with the all the ghouls, goblins and nose-challenged evil wizards.
