Annie, are you okay? Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks

1999's STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE had a trade federation starship-load of problems, but the easiest to pinpoint is that of the CG character, Jar Jar Binks. Ahmed Best ended up portraying (arguably) the most hated character of the franchise, so it's hard to imagine things being much worse. Much to my surprise, we may have dodged a lazer. Speaking with Vice, Best...

Cool Videos: How it should have ended: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

But what about working with George Lucas on any of the STAR WARS films? Wait...it's...
