@adamlambert "Ooooh!!!! Exciting!"
There is much speculation amongst Adam's fans that he may be involved in the production. He has expressed interest in portraying the part of Judas and has previous experience singing one of the songs from "Jesus Christ Superstar" (video of his 2007 performance embedded below). His schedule seems to allow time for rehearsal and filming before & after his Australia & New Zealand Queen + Adam Lambert concerts coming up early next year..
Soooo...hmmmm..... what do YOU think??? (It's fun to consider the possibility..).

Alice Cooper Cast as King Herod in NBC's 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live!'
EXCERPT from the Hollywood Reporter article (linked above) and in the tweet by @craigzadan
Rock ’n’ roll icon Alice Cooper has been cast as the flamboyant King Herod in NBC’s staged rock concert of Jesus Christ Superstar Live! Also joining the special, which will air on Easter Sunday, April 1, is British theatre director David Leveaux, a five-time Tony Award nominee. “Alice Cooper, whose theatricality is the stuff of legend, is the perfect rock star to play Herod in our live production,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. “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.”
"Adam Lambert performs “Heaven On Their Minds” [10-15-2007] from the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the “Valley Musical Theater Presents: Broadway Unplugged” at the John Anson Ford Theatre in Hollywood. It is a benefit for the theater and is a showcase for many of his “Wicked’ castmates, as well as many other musical theater performers.” "
