Lagos-Born Sam Adegoke to play a lead role in a Micheal Jackson’s biopic titled, “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland.”

Adegoke is known for ‘Murder in the First’, ‘Switch at Birth’ and ‘Criminal minds: Beyond Borders’.


The movie; “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland”, is based on the best-selling book, “Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days”.

The story is told through the viewpoint of the King of Pop’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard.

Adegoke will play Beard, while Chad L. Coleman will play Whitfield.

Navi, a renowned Michael Jackson tribute artist, will star as Jackson in his acting debut.


Adegoke was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and now lives in Los Angeles. He got his acting career jump-started when he emerged, out of over 7,000 competitors, as the winner of ABC’ annual Digital Talent Competition.

The two-hour original Lifetime movie is slated for premiere later this year.
