Yup, he went there.

Bryan Michael Stoller, director of Miss Cast Away and the Island Girls*, talks to MTV about watching movies with his buddy, Michael Jackson:

"His favorite movie is To Kill a Mockingbird. He has an actual 35-millimeter print of the movie. We watched it together once and, you know, he was into serious pieces... I said to him one day, 'You're living To Kill a Mockingbird right now.' It was all about a black man who was on trial. And [both Jackson and the character in the film] were innocent. It was just really weird that that was his favorite film even before these allegations happened. The trial was kind of a modern version of To Kill a Mockingbird."

I... yeah. I'm just going to leave it at that.

* Miss Cast Away..., according to the IMDb, is "A spoof that combines Cast Away with Miss Congeniality, Planet of the Apes, Love Boat, Gilligan's Island, The Sixth Sense, Jurassic Park, and more." Just so you know.
