[ # ] What’s the fuss? Alice Cooper joins NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar!
December 8th, 2017 under Alice Cooper, Andrew Lloyd Webber, NBC

On my birthday aka April 1, 2018 or as Christians call it Easter Sunday, NBC is going to air Jesus Christ Superstar and today they announced who will be playing King Herod. That fun role is going to The Godfather of Shock Rock or we know him as Alice Cooper. Even though he looks like he worships Satan, he actually grew up in the Church because his father was a preacher. Therefore, this is perfect for him!

Personally, I would have gone with David Hasselhoff because I think of King Herod as cheesy and well, you can see where I am going with that thought. When it comes to Jesus, I would go with Josh Groban because he kind of looks like the messiah. Jason Derulo could really surprise us as Judas because he has a powerful voice. Talking about powerful voice, you really need one to belt out I Don’t Know How to Love Him. Thus, I would cast either Rita Ora or Ariana Grande. But that is me. Who would you cast in the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical?

Fun Fact: Zero Mostel’s son Josh played King Herod in the motion picture version. I did not know that until today.

One more fun fact: Alice Cooper record King Herod’s song in 1996 (xoxo Michael), so he can do this part blindfolded! To hear his version, then

One more version of King Herod’s song from the 2000 movie version that I must find ASAP!
