Alice Cooper to play King Herod on NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live!

  • NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said of casting the rock 'n' roll legend on the live musical: “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.”
