It has been reported that Michael Jackson is contemplating portraying Edgar Allan Poe in some production or other.

I find this ironic.

It seems to me that he might make a character in a Poe Story.

So, If Michael Jackson's life was a Poe Story, which one would it be? If he was a character in a Poe story, which one?

Well, here's the deal. You see Michael will play E.A.Poe in an independent shoot. The movie will be called, The Nightmares of E. A. Poe. Michael will be playing Poe. I'm a big Micheal fan, so I assume that he chose this character because of the similarities between these 2 individuals' life. They both had a rough childhood and they were both able to express all their emotions through their art. If you look at the section of Unanwered Questions, under the title of THE NIGHTMARES OF EGAR ALLEN POE, you will see my question. Production will start in Sepetember here in Montreal. It should be interesting to see exactly how Michael will portray Poe.

My own vote is for Roderick Usher in "Fall of the House of Usher".
