Michael Jackson's Son Lands Entertainment Tonight Gig

Michael Jackson's oldest son, Prince Michael Jackson, will be working as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.

The 16-year-old will first appear alongside Brooke Anderson interviewing director Sam Raimi and the stars of Raimi's new film Oz: The Great and the Powerful, including James Franco and Zach Braff. Segments of the interview will air later this week.

Prince said he was excited for his new role, explaining: "I've been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed."

Jackson also credited his father for his demeanor as a public speaker: "That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right."

Anderson explained how Jackson was a perfect fit for the show: "I thought him interviewing people from Oz would be great because his dad was in The Wiz, he's a fan of The Wizard of Oz and he wants to get into producing and directing."
