Michael Jackson's Kids -- The Future Is 'Grimm'

3/1/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's in their blood ... and now Prince & Paris Jackson want to show the world they belong in show business ... by trying out for their school play -- a mash-up of classic "Brothers Grimm" fairy tales.

Paris expressed interest in auditioning for the show recently on "Good Morning America"  -- and now TMZ has learned, Prince wants in on the action too ... because they BOTH officially tried out last week.

The show's called "The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon" ... and it crams 209 classic fairy tales -- like "Snow White" and "Cinderella" -- into a single jam-packed play.

So far, no word on who got what role -- if any -- but the odds are in their favor ... because the play has nearly 50 characters in it.

LOTS OF CELEBRITY KIDS TRY OUT FOR PLAYS. WHY ARE THESE KIDS TELLINGTHE WORLD BEFORE THEY EVEN AUDITION.
GUESS GRANDMA, GREEDY JOE AND MANN WANNA MAKE SURE THEY NOT ONLY GET A PART BUT THAT DIRECTORS AND PRODUCERS WILL LINE UP TO HIRE THEM.

THE ONLY WAY JOE AND HOWARD MANN CAN GET THEIR GRUBBY HANDS ON MJs MONEY IS BY WORKING FOR THE KIDS IF THE KIDS HAVE CAREERS.

SERIOUSLY - RESPECT THE CHILDREN'S PRIVACY AND STOP EMBARASSING THEM. WHAT IF THEY DON'T GET A PART IN THE PLAY - WILL THEY PUT THAT ON THE FRONT PAGE TOO? MAYBE SAY IT'S A CONSPIRACY THEORY

Come on TMZ, leave these kids alone. They are in a school play just like alot of kids that go to school are. Are you going to be in their faces everytime they turn around just like you were with their dad? No wonder he shielded them from the world as long as he could. I do not blame him for that one bit. He knew what would happen.

The older two in no way resemble MJ. They do resemble Debbie. Debbie - go get your kids before Joe Jackson destroys their lives even more.

Maybe the family are just trying to take our eyes off other things with this continous pimping of the kids and not revealling their plays at school.

Guess they wanna make sure not only do the kids get a part but that the press shows up at the school to film them. They gotta make money for greedy Mann somehow. I'm sure he'll be right there taking bids from producers.

It's like Jackie told People Magazine - he told the kids he was a star by their age and they have to get moving!!

hope they enjoy it and have fun
being tutored privately like they had been living with their dad, they would have missed out on things like this

only problem is that even if they grow to be terrible actors-who would have the nerve to tell the children of Michael Jackson that they had no talent...short of Simon Cowell being brutalaly honest-can you actually see anyone telling it like it is ever to these kids because of the fame connection to their dad and their millions?

I hope in their lives they will meet people who do not want to gain in some way from who they are-they are the ones worth having in their lives...and sadly that eliminates some of their relatives

Why is TMZ helping destroy the kids private lives instead of talking about the truth of the trial?

Katherine has very little she can sue AEG for, apparently even her lawyer said Prince didn't witness the propafal being given to his Dad, but still we know he witnessed a lot more. The body gaurds testimony shows that. So why remove it?
I'll assume it's because AEG could also ask the kids about their Dad's drug past.

The Nanny told police the kids had to call 911 in florida once because their Dad wouldn't wake up.

Not sure what's going on but bth the prosecution and defense are not fully diclosing information. Jermaine said the police were still investigating, but it looks like all the defense want is both the surveillance tapes and full autopsy pictures. They were available shortly after MJ passed.
So why hold on to them?

My guess is that as obvious as it is that Conrad is negligent, the prosecution have a weak case, and the pictures may show a drug addiction.


Also, the family don't want the kids to have tell the truth about Dad.

"It's in their blood"????? That makes a ton of sense considering they're not genetically related to their dad but okay TMZ.

Paris Blanket and paris, we all know some day you will read this. Your father was a monster and paid for you cause it was getting to expensive paying for other children to keep their mouths shut.

Do yourself a favor and go get some professional help due to the stuff the maniac put you through over the years. And dont forget write a book to shut the rabids up telling how he "played" with you.

It's so sad that this country is so politically correct that we can't even say... ummm those kids are white... because you will be branded as a racist. How many of you have ever seen a mixed child with one dark parent (He was dark before his horrendous bout with Vitiligo.. lmao) that had not a single black characteristic? Who are we kidding here?? Cmon TMX.. do some investigative reporting and find out who these kids parents really are... I'm betting big that there is no relation to MJ.

You can say it. Yet your rationale of what a black person is "Supposed" to look is racist, ignorant and wrong.
TMZ does not investigate. If they did in the case of Prince and Paris it would only prove that the children are Jacksons. Get over it clown. There are others in the extended jackson family who look just like prince and paris and they are jacksons by blood not marriage.
