Who is that guy who was helping Michael Jackson with his concert tour?

Alonzo, Michael JacksonYou've probably heard that at the time of his death, Michael Jackson was working on 50-date concert tour in London. From the various accounts of the production and rehearsal photos that were released this week, it looks like it was going to be a typical Michael Jackson production: expensive, outlandish, and explosive. A real spectacle that was going to include burning bed and a giant orb.

And the production was going to be worked on by a former cast member of Saved By The Bell.

Before you have visions of Dustin Diamond dancing with the King of Pop, I'm talking about magician Ed Alonzo, who played the owner of the Max restaurant on the show. Alonzo is now (and always has been, actually) a well-respected magician, and he was going to work on Jackson's show. He has also worked on stage productions for people like Britney Spears, and he acts and/or does magic for various plays and stage shows.

Here's an interview with Alonzo, which includes photos from the final rehearsal with Jackson.
