The 26-year-old actor is “humbled and honoured” to have been selected to play his uncle, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 50 after succumbing to severe propofol intoxication, in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film ‘Michael,’ which will simply relate the life story of the King of Pop.

Jaafar – who is the son of the ‘Bad’ hitmaker’s brother Jermaine, 68 – said: “I’m humbled and honoured to bring my Uncle Michael’s story to life. To all the fans all over the world, I’ll see you soon.”

Katherine Jackson, the grandmother of the Jackson family, supported the choice because she thinks her grandson “embodies” Michael’s spirit.

Jaafar’s 92-year-old grandmother said: “Jaafar embodies my son. It’s so wonderful to see him carry on the Jackson legacy of entertainers and performers,”

After performing a worldwide search, the movie’s producer, Graham King, who also worked on the film adaptation of Freddie Mercury’s biography, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” believes the celebrity is “the only person” to play the part.

He said: “I met Jaafar over two years ago and was blown away by the way he organically personifies the spirit and personality of Michael. It was something so powerful that even after conducting a worldwide search, it was clear that he is the only person to take on this role.”
