SONY LAYS SOME BAD BREAD ON DANGEROUS

If Michael Jackson's first album since his 1987 monster Bad isn't a hit, don't blame Sony. The company's Epic Records label, which will release Jackson's Dangerous album on Nov. 26, is giving it a sendoff worth an estimated $20 million. Included in that total is an 11-minute video by director John Landis that features Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin, Cheers barfly George Wendt, and cool kid Bart Simpson. The video will play twice on Fox's network, once as part of a 30-minute Jackson special. Now, all Dangerous has to do is sell.EDITED BY HARRIS COLLINGWOOD
