2017-01-11 08:27

Cape Town – Joseph Fiennes made headlines last year when it was revealed that he would play Michael Jackson in a new TV series.

Sky Arts has just released the first teaser for Urban Myths, an eight part series which recreates rumoured stories about celebrities.

The Risen actor joins Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando in Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon.

The story is loosely based on a fictitious tale that the celebrities shared a car when they left New York after the September 11 attacks. 

The teaser also gives a sneak peek of other scenes in the series including Iwan Rheon as Adolf Hitler, Rupert Grint as his friend, Ben Chaplin as Cary Grant and Eddie Marsan as Bob Dylan.
