B.B.C. Article
Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon is to play King Herod in a US touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
The singer, formerly known as Johnny Rotten, will be joined on stage by Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child as Mary Magdalene and JC Chasez of 'N Sync as Pontius Pilate.
"I don't do nothing easy, right?" said Lydon at a press launch for the show.
"I do it because I believe in this and I think we can make this work in a much more different way."
As well as the all-star supporting cast, the production will feature ITV talent show winner Ben Forster as Jesus.
