Michael Jackson in The WizHe was known as the King of Pop, but Michael Jackson was no stranger to the movie world -- whether he was in the starring role, playing a bit part for comic relief or being paid glorious tribute. In fact, on his videos he worked with some of the biggest directors in the business, everyone from Martin Scorsese ('Bad') and John Landis ('Thriller') to Spike Lee ('They Don't Care About Us') and David Fincher ('Who Is It?').

And now, with the release of his swan song, 'Michael Jackson's This Is It,' the late singer is poised to have perhaps his biggest cinematic success of all. Ease on down the road with us as we take a look back at some of our favorite movie moments from the life of Michael Jackson.
