An ailing Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital Tuesday on his way to court, delaying jury selection by a week. According to reports, Jacko is battling the flu. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Taylor, Kobe Bryant, illusionist David Blaine and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter are among the celebs Jackson's defense team may call to testify on the singer's behalf, according to the just-released witness list. Also on the call sheet: members of Marlon Brando's family, 60 Minutes newsman Ed Bradley and, if my hunch is correct, a certain '80s sitcom star whose name rhymes with Smebster.
