You read that headline right and, no, it is not April Fool’s Day anymore. The North American run of an ongoing arena tour for Jesus Christ Superstar has revealed its cast, and it’s a doozy, with Brandon Boyd (Incubus) as Judas Iscariot, JC Chasez (*NSYNC) as Pontius Pilate, Michelle Williams (Destiny’s Child) as Mary Magdalene and John ‘Don’t Call Me Rotten’ Lydon as King Herod. As for who will play Jesus Christ himself, Ben Forster, the winner of 2012′s Superstar show — a televised talent search that was so popular a movie version of it hit UK theaters — will reprise his role yet again. Williams and Boyd revealed the news on Good Morning America earlier today by singing “Superstar” in front of a live studio audience.
