Larry King appeared today on The Howard Stern Show today. Within five minutes of being interviewed, he said that 15-year-old Paris Jackson looks like a porn star and called Ted Turner a manic depressive. He also dissed Piers Morgan, who replaced him on CNN.

Howard asked Larry about reports that he is set to star in a movie with Paris Jackson:

“They came to me with this movie, based on a very good series of children’s books. It’s about mermaids and people and it was a very good idea that was going to be distributed to the schools. It had a good writer.”

“The writer who wrote it sold this packaged deal that would star Paris Jackson. Paris would be the star and my wife was going to be the mermaid, ‘cause she can really sing. And I was going to be the narrator, sort of.”

“Now all kind of deals came forward and at the time this was signed, Paris Jackson was 12 and looked 12. Now she is 18 and looks like she is on ‘Hustler.’ So now it’s all tied up with financing.”

On Ted Turner:

“How do I describe Ted Turner? He’s a manic depressive. He takes Lithium. He is the most...and I can’t emphasize this enough...the most loyal person that has ever lived. If you work for Ted Turner, he stands by you. Stand by him and he stands by you.”

On being asked to leave CNN and Piers Morgan:

“I’ll tell you about the ending. I had done 25 years for them and I was the highest paid guy in cable. I always had four-year contracts. Well three years ago, they came to me and said ‘Hey, we’re going into a new direction and we’re only gonna give you a one year contract."

“It felt like a slap in the face but I was 74-years-old so I said I would take the deal. They also gave me a 3 year severance package that just expired, so that was good. I suggested to the network that they pick Ryan Seacrest. That’s when Seacrest was really blowing up. If someone is going to replace you, it needs to be someone who people know. People didn’t know Pierce. I don’t dislike Pierce, he seems like a nice guy. I did the show a few times, but we do different shows...I don’t dislike him, but I don’t like the show.”
