Blaine to be Needled

The Associated Press is reporting that Michael Jackson will call several Hollywood stars as part of his defense case.  This news follows on a leak from the prosecution team last week that it subpoenaed former child actor Corey Feldman. 

 

Both sides are required to announce the potential witnesses in advance of their jury selection.  This process allows perspective jurors to tell the court if they have are friends with or know any of the witnesses. 

 

Mr. Jackson?s attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr. said that NBA star Kobe Bryant, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, Elizabeth Taylor and illusionist David Blaine are among the celebrities the defense plans to call in the case.  Additionally, the defense announced it may call “60 Minutes” correspondent Ed Bradley, relatives of late actor Marlon Brando, and former child actors Emmanuel Lewis and Macaulay Culkin.  These names are in addition to: the accuser and his family; Stevie Wonder; Diana Ross; the Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb; comedian Chris Tucker; talk-show hosts Larry King and Maury Povich; and guru Deepak Chopra.

 

It is significant to note that neither side will call Elephant Man star, John Hurt.
