Actor Ahmed Best, who performed one of the roles in “Star Wars”, said that he had to compete with Michael Jackson himself.
Ahmed voiced a character named Ja Ja Binks. The actor said that Michael Jackson really wanted to get this role. The pop king was hoping to portray the alien while being made up. At the same time, the creator of the space saga, George Lucas believed that Binks should have been created using computer graphics, and ultimately chose Best.
