Troubled comedian Bill Cosby is turning to Michael Jackson's attorney to help get him off in his sexual assault retrial, has learned.

Cosby, 80, has been forced to hastily put together a whole new legal dream team, after his previous attorneys ditched him!

Mesereau has also represented actor Robert Blake, boxer Mike Tyson, and rap kingpin Marion "Suge" Knight.

Former federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss and prominent Pennsylvania attorney Sam Silver have also signed up for the job, which kicks off with a hearing tomorrow.

As readers know, the disgraced comedian's previous attorneys, Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa, kicked Cosby to the curb earlier this month.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a former operations manager of Temple University's women's basketball team. His first trial ended in a hung jury.
