So, now that we have this James Brown movie… I expect a Jackie Wilson movie to be made next. You know, the guy who influenced James, Michael Jackson, Elvis, etc. & his life story is just far too interesting and controversial not to be made into a film.
"In the entertainment business, there are leaders and there are followers. And I just want to say that I think Jackie Wilson was a wonderful entertainer… I love you and thank you so much." - Michael Jackson
"Jackie Wilson was the most dynamic singer and performer that I think I’ve ever seen." - Smokey Robinson
"He was the real Elvis Presley, as far as I’m concerned… and Elvis took a lot from him too." - Bobby Womack
"The greatest singer that I’ve ever heard. The epitome of natural greatness. Unfortunately for some, he set the standard I’d be looking for in singers forever." - Berry Gordy
I’ll be waiting for my “Mr. Excitement” movie.
