The Trailer For 'Urban Myths Raises A Few Questions

But before we answer those questions, we're noting that this is supposed to be funny. 

Urban Myths, a special that will be airing on Sky Arts documents specific urban myths about certain celebrities and other historical figures.

One of the myths, which seems to be the center of the special shows Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marlon Brando, in a tale in which the three of them drove from New York to Ohio to attempt getting home after 9/11. We still don't know what's true or false with this story 100%, but what is true is that Joseph Fiennes looks nothing like Michael Jackson.

Other stories include one about Bob Dylan, Cary Grant, and Adolph Hitler. Labeled Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection Of Comedies, even Joseph Fiennes noted to critics that the film is not a biopic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I knew the sensitivity, especially to Michael's fans and to Michael's family. It doesn't negate who he was."

Either way, we question what caused them to pick Fiennes, when Stockard Channing and Brian Cox are a lot more on point.
