Michael Jackson's son has landed a job as a special correspondent for TV show Entertainment Tonight.

Prince Michael Jackson, 16 – whose father died from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - is hoping the job will lead to a long career in the entertainment industry.

"I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor," he said.

"I've been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed."

While Prince's first interview was with James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi for their new movie Oz the Great and Powerful, he is hoping his next one will be with Peter Jackson because he loved to watch the director's movies with his dad.

"Peter Jackson, I love his movies. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and King Kong," Prince said.

"I just love the way he shoots (and how) he brings things and depicts it back to life.

"I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together."
