MTV reports that he will not be playing an alien...

MICHAEL JACKSON is to set to appear in the forthcoming film ‘MEN IN BLACK 2’.

Jackson‘s cameo role was filmed in Los Angeles last Tuesday (October 16). The follow-up to the 1997 hit ‘Men In Black’ will again feature Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones and be directed by Barry Sonnenfield. A spokesperson for the film denied that Jackson would be playing a space alien, MTV reports.

The appearance will mark Jackson’s first-feature film role since an appearance in ‘Ghosts’ in 1997.

Jackson will be hoping to breathe new life into his career with the release of new album ‘Invincible’ next week. The album appears in the UK on October 29 and a day later in the US.
