Michael Jackson's son Prince Michael has been named as the new on-air correspondent for US TV show Entertainment Tonight.

The 16 year-old will interview celebrities for the CBS programme, and has already shot an interview with actors Zach Braff and James Franco to promote their new movie Oz, The Great and Powerful. "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor," Prince Michael is heard telling host Brooke Anderson during his appearance in a short promo for the latest episode.

In the preview of Jackson's TV debut, which you can watch below, the teenager asks Franco, Braff and movie director Sam Raimi for advice on making it in the entertainment industry and also recalls his late father's appearance in the 1978 movie The Wiz. When it is pointed out that he seems a lot more mature than his age, Jackson remarks that his upbringing is responsible, "It's all thanks to my Dad, he raised me right."

Meanwhile, David Gest, a close friend of Michael Jackson, recently claimed that the late star's will may be fake and urged those closest to him to investigate.

Watch: Prince Michael Jackson makes his US TV debut.
