If you missed last night’s live TV version of the rock opera ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ watch Alice Cooper as King Herod in the video above. Why choose Alice Cooper to play the role? Well the part is written with Herod as an outsized, menacing character, a character Alice has embodied on stage from the get go!
Besides, I bet you didn’t know that Alice (AKA Vincent Furnier) is a biblical scholar! Well he is thanks to his upbringing by a dad who was a pastor.
Alice did play the roll previously in a 1996 staging of the show in London.
