Alice Cooper to play King Herod in 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live!'

09 Décembre 2017

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice wrote a showstopping musical number for Herod and we all look forward to the "King of Shock Rock" taking on the King of Judea.

For four decades, Alice Cooper has been the king of camp with his over-the-top live shows so we can't think of anyone better to play King Herod on NBC's live version of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Robert Greenblatt, chairman, NBC Entertainment, said of the decision, "Alice Cooper, whose theatricality is the stuff of legend, is the ideal rock star to play Herod in our live production".

As an actor, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Cooper has appeared in numerous films and TV series including a brief but memorable role in Wayne's World ("We're not worthy!") and playing the Sun King in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - in which the band played a decidedly warped take on the Beatles' "Because". "As the casting for Superstar ramps up, we can feel the excitement building for this brand new concert experience of what has always been considered the original rock musical".

Also, British theater director David Leveaux will helm the show.

NBC has finally found its King Herod for an upcoming production of "Jesus Christ Superstar Live!": Alice Cooper.
