Alice Cooper Casted As King Herod In NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live!”

Alice Cooper has announced that he has been casted as King Herod in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live!,” which will air on Easter (April 1). Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, commented:

“Alice Cooper, whose theatricality is the stuff of legend, is the perfect rock star to play Herod in our live production. 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. As the casting for ‘Superstar’ ramps up, we can feel the excitement building for this brand new concert experience of what has long been considered the original rock musical.”
