Edward Moss will portray Michael Jackson in E! Entertainment Television’s re-enactments of the “King of Pop’s” court case, the network said Wednesday.
Moss has appeared on MADtv, Politically Incorrect, The Steve Harvey Show and Nip/Tuck, as well as feature films Scary Movie 3 and Don't Be Scared.
“Edward Moss brings experience and skill to the role of Michael Jackson," E! Networks senior vice president of production Jeff Shore said in a prepared statement.
“All of the components of our production, from casting to the re-creation of the courtroom set, will be vital to our re-enactment series, The Michael Jackson Trial, which we believe will be one of the most memorable court cases in history,” Shore added.
The Michael Jackson Trial will air on E! Monday-Friday at 7:30 p.m. (EST/PST) with a weekend wrap-up show airing each Saturday.
