Tonight on VH1, Flex Alexander impersonates the scandal-ridden King of Pop in Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story (9 pm/ET). With Jacko's child-molestation trial looming, and weird news stories breaking about him almost daily, the role must've posed quite a challenge. Especially for Alexander, a comic actor best known from his UPN sitcom, One on One. Here, he tells TV Guide Online all about moonwalking in Jacko's spooky shoes.
TV Guide Online: Did Jackson's legal troubles scare you?Flex Alexander: It didn't deter me because no one can say he's guilty! They just have thoughts and opinions. If we all lived the life that he lived, being a star at four or five years old, we might be a little different, too. Him and God know what happened. Let the court take care of it, and let's focus on the good he's done for children and this world.
TVGO: So this film isn't a hatchet job?Alexander: The movie is very positive.
