Michael Jackson’s oldest son, Prince Jackson, has reportedly landed a gig as an on-air correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.

The 16-year-old child of the late King of Pop had his first stint as a correspondent this weekend during a Pasadena, California press junket for Disney’s upcoming adventure film Oz the Great and Powerful.

During the press event, Jackson interviewed the film’s director Sam Raimi and stars James Franco and Zack Braff. He asked the director and actors if they had any advice for him on getting started in the entertainment industry.

“I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor,” Jackson told Entertainment Tonight’s Brooke Anderson in the first footage from his gig, airing during tonight’s program.

Prince’s sister Paris Jackson is scheduled to make her film debut later this year in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. Chances are we can expect Prince to land an exclusive interview with Paris when she begins doing press for her film.

There is no word yet on how frequently Jackson will appear on the entertainment TV program.
