By Malcolm Abram Published: April 4, 2014

Yeah, that's right...There should be a tear in the space/time continuum opening any minute now...

From the "WHAT THE HELL?" files comes this slightly surreal bit of promotional information from the Associated Press.

Starting June 9, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar will hit the road with an eclectic and interesting cast featuring:

MICHELLE WILLIAMS  (a.k.a the least interesting member of Destiny's Child) starring as Mary.

BRANDON BOYD (lead singer of early 2000's metalish band Incubus) starring as Judas

JC CHASEZ (the second funkiest former member of 'N Sync) starring as Pontius Pilate

JOHN LYDON (a.k.a. Public Image Ltd., leader a.k.a Johnny Rotten lead singer of the Sex Pistol) starring as Jud King Herod

yeah, go ahead and read that last one again, if you need too.

BEN FORSTER (a.k.a The Winner of U.K.'pop star reality show "Superstar" a.k.a Who?) will star as Jesus H. Christ

The revival...err....resurrectin begins in New Orleans and stops in Clevland at The Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday, August 10....
