Well, this is mildly disturbing. Prince Jackson, who is now 16 years old, has gotten his first job -- as a correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight."

According to the show's website, Prince will be interviewing the stars of "Oz The Great and Powerful" as part of his entree into the world of showbiz (OH WAIT). Conveniently, he's also being mentored by ET's Brooke Anderson, meaning that she has access to him and can ask him questions like what he wants to be when he grows up -- a "producer, director, screenwriter and actor" -- and why he's so mature for his age.

“That’s what most of my people say," replies Jackson. "That was all thanks to my dad. He raised me right."

While interviewing the male stars of "Oz," Jackson sincerely asks them what advice they have for someone looking to get into the world of showbiz, as if he doesn't have more information about that in his pinkie fingernail than all of them combined.

Regardless, Franco responds: "I always tell people, just go out and try, and stop waiting around or dreaming it’s going to happen. Just go and start doing things on your own.”

Or, have Michael Jackson be your dad.
