Michael Jackson`s kids to voice Asian cartoon characters

London: Pop icon Michael Jackson`s three kids are set to lend their voice to characters in an Asian children`s cartoon, which they hope will lead them onto more "high profile" opportunities in showbiz.

Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and `Blanket`, 10, are keen on following in their superstar father`s footsteps into showbusiness by appearing in the TV show, reported Sun online.

"They are set to do the voices for a kids` Asian cartoon hit that is being imported to the US. Paris doesn`t share his father`s singing talents but has done some acting. And if the voiceover work is a success it will lead to more high-profile live action roles," said a source.

Prince and Paris - who is set to make her acting debut in family movie `Lundon`s Bridge and the Three Keys` next year - are both keen to pursue acting careers and see it as a welcome distraction from their "tough" school life.

"The older pair in particular have no doubt that they want to follow their dad into showbusiness. And they find school tough. Kids can be really cruel," the insider added.
