Edward Moss (born July 11, 1977) is an American actor and impersonator of late pop musician Michael Jackson.

While working at McDonald's in the early 1990s, he practiced his act in his spare time after being repeatedly told how much he resembled the singer. In 1994, he won a company talent contest, after which he took up impersonating Jackson as a profession.

Moss has stated it only takes him 30 45 minutes to transform himself into Jackson. His impersonation skills have led to work in many countries, including the Philippines, Bahrain, New Zealand and Japan.

Jackson had hired Moss to stand in for him on a number of occasions. Moss has impersonated Jackson in a number of films including the third and fourth Scary Movie films, and Date Movie. He also appeared as Jackson on E! Entertainment, Sky News and Sky1's reenactment of the Michael Jackson Trial.

Many of Jackson's fans accuse Moss of mocking the singer. Moss denies suggestions that he exploits Jackson in a negative manner.
