JOSEPH FIENNES RECORDS MICHAEL JACKSON ALBUM

HOLLYWOOD – Joseph Fiennes is to play Michael Jackson in a new film based on the King of Pop’s life and the Studio Exec has got an EXCLUSIVE first look.

Joseph Fiennes’ new film is a Thriller: it’s Bad! It’s Off the Wall! It’s Captain Eo!!!! The Shakespeare in Love star is to play King of Pop Michael Jackson in a new film and in order to prepare for the role the English actor and brother of Ralph Fiennes has gone into the recording studio and recorded a track for track tribute album of Jackson’s best selling album Bad. Fiennes popped into the Studio Exec NeverNever Land compound to talk about his approach the iconic role:

No one was more surprised than me when I landed the role and I understood that many would think it should have gone to a black actor. However, all those arguments aside, I want to do the best job that I can. Just as I did in Killing Me Softly with Heather Graham. And everyone remembers how well that turned out!

So what’s your approach?

I want to completely absorb myself in the role. So first thing I did after I put the phone down was to write all the songs for the album Bad. Then the next morning, I got up early watched a Macaulay Culkin video and went straight to the studio to record my version of that amazing album.

Wow!

I know. I was surprised at how quick it took. I mean I played the instruments as well, but I was done by lunch time. I must admit I lost some admiration for the man. Tomorrow I’m doing Thriller and the week after that we’re on tour.

When’s the film due out?

Film? Oh, God I forgot we had to do a film as well! Okay. Yeah they’ll phone me. But the most important thing is I immerse myself in the character. The album will come out next week and I’m doing a Pepsi commercial Tuesday.

Joseph Fiennes’ Bad will be released in 2017.

JOSEPH FIENNES FOUND IN A HOLE

HOLLYWOOD – Shakespeare in Love actor Joseph Fiennes has been found at the bottom of a deep hole in Cornwall, England.

The shaken actor was rescued yesterday afternoon when Alan and Mavis Petersen, walking their border collie Deridda, heard cries for help coming from a hole near the path. It is believed that Fiennes must have fallen down the hole sometime shortly after shooting FlashForward. His agent spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec:

This is a real relief. I’ve been trying to contact Joseph for years. Literally years. I thought he was mad because it was me that persuaded him to do Killing Me Softly, but all this time he’s been down the hole in Cornwall. It comes, I have to say, as a relief. Now we can finally start looking at those offers for Shakespeare in Love Again that we’ve been getting. Or at least got ten years ago.

How is Joseph?

He’s fine. Obviously he’s lost weight and he’s a little bit deranged. At first there was this preternatural calm but then he learned that Ralph Fiennes (Joseph’s brother) got a role in the Harry Potter films and he went ballistic.

Still rivals, huh?

Apparently when he was in the hole, Joseph made a model of his brother out of pebbles and twigs and mud, meticulous and perfect in every detail, just so that he could kick it in the head.

Yikes.

I know.

But there’s one thing that confuses me. If Joseph Fiennes has been stuck down this hole for five years or more, how come he was in American Horror Story recently?

This stings a bit because he didn’t come to me, but apparently some of his old FlashForward pals knew where Joseph was all along and they’d come and collect him from hole via a helicopter and a winch, He’d shoot his scenes and then they’d put him back in the hole where he would give Ralph a healthy thrashing and resume his rocking back and forth and keening.

What’s next for Joseph?

Appropriately enough he’s doing a film called Risen, about the resurrection of Jesus. Kevin Reynolds of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Waterworld fame is on the job. So we’re all very excited.

Risen will be released 2018.
