Someone is officially ready to follow his famous father's footsteps into the spotlight.

Prince Michael Jackson, MJ's eldest son, age 16, is joining Entertainment Tonight as an on-air correspondent, and it's been revealed that he'll also make his acting debut on The CW's 90210.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Prince will guest star on the season finale as "Cooper, a trauma victim who bonds with Silver (Jessica Stroup) over the realization — at a very young age — how precious life is." He is taping his 90210 appearance this week.

Last week, Prince told ET, "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor."
