The original X-Men movie is celebrating its 20th Anniversary and a fun-fact has been uncovered.

According to The Hollywood Michael Jackson tried to convince Fox to cast him as Professor X.

In the spring of 1999, Michael Jackson pitched himself and was asked if he knew that Professor X was an old white man, to which Jackson responded that he could use make-up.
