We don't think you're ready for this jelly: Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams and *NSYNC member JC Chasez will star in Jesus Christ Super Star's upcoming national tour. The all-star cast also includes Incubus’ Brandon Boyd

Jesus Christ Superstar has enlisted literal rock superstars straight off of your favorite 90’s playlist to join its North American tour.

The updated show will star Incubus’ Brandon Boyd as Judas Iscariot, *NSYNC’s JC Chasez to play Pontius Pilate, and Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams to play Mary Magdalene. But it isn’t only 90’s stars. John Rotten of the Sex Pistols will play King Herod against Ben Forster’s returning role as Jesus Christ.

The tour will begin in New Orleans June 9 and travel to Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia.

The only thing that could make this better was if a Spice Girl was thrown in. Who do we have to pray to to make that happen?
