DENZEL WASHINGTON TELLS DR. CONRAD MURRAY TO BEAT IT!

Michael Jackson’s killer, Dr. Conrad Murray, wants Denzel Washington to play him in a biopic he’s written, but the Oscar winning actor wants nothing to do with it.

Murray, the King of Pop’s personal physician, was charged with involuntary manslaughter for causing the death of Jackson on June 25, 2009.

Murray’s timing couldn’t be more inappropriate. A Dish Nation insider says the deluded cardiologist made the offer to the “Training Day” star’s camp to coincide with the fifth anniversary of Michael’s tragic death.

“Denzel is so not interested,” the source explained. “He was friends with Michael, and was deeply saddened by what happened.The thought of helping the man who killed him is preposterous. The worst part of this whole mess is that Murray’s script paints the picture that he was an innocent victim. The script is not only horribly written, but it reads like a horror flick. No Hollywood A-lister will even consider this project. Murray’s thinking that pitching this on the five year anniversary was a good idea just shows how delusional he is.”

Dr. Murray has been slamming the beloved singer since leaving prison last year. He still claims that Jackson was tormented and that he self injected the fatal dose of drugs that ultimately killed him.

Denzel admitted that Jackson often popped round to his home for fried chicken meals to discuss film projects in the 1990s.

According to the insider, Dr. Murray is still shopping around his book outline and the screenplay, but “he’s getting doors slammed in his face.”

A Jackson family source added: “This is just the latest disgusting ploy by Murray to trade off his despicable actions. This guy is shameless. He just has no sensibilities about what he is doing to us. He’s still trying to make a living off Michael’s fame.”
