Hunter Parrish: Jesus in Broadway's 'Godspell'!

Hunter Parrish will be heading back to Broadway to play Jesus in the revival of the musical Godspell!

“I am elated to be joining the Godspell family, and honored to be a part of bringing this thrilling classic back to Broadway,” the 24-year-old Weeds actor said in a statement. “I knew after meeting with the creative team that I was going to be a part of something really exciting. I can’t wait to get started.”

Hunter previously appeared on Broadway in Spring Awakening.

Godspell, which features music by Wicked‘s Stephen Schwartz, uses “improvisation and contemporary themes to illustrate the parables, [bringing] these lessons to life through the grand tradition of musical theatre.”

  • Taylor

    Am I the only one who doesn’t find this guy hot at all? I’d prefer to do Shane Botwin

  • creed

    he is soo hot.
    Broadway HUGE deal, good thing he didnt get hunger games

  • Please!!!

    Sooo hot <3

  • Kim

    He was actually Kyle Riabko’s replacement in Spring Awakening…Jonathan Groff left before that.

  • Andriana

    @Taylor: You are disgusting, the actor who plays Shane Botwin is underage and I don’t understand why you would still pick him over Hunter Parrish.

  • DNM

    @Andriana: did it occur to you that maybe @Taylor is also underage? i think your reaction was a bit harsh and maybe you should think before call someone disgusting

  • Marianne

    Considering there is a good chance that Jesus Christ Superstar might get revived on Broadway, I don’t know if this particular Jesus will be as popular.

    @DNM: Taylor is probably a fat, grown-up gay guy with boy-love.

  • British Latin American

    God, but Hunter is gorgeous!

  • longchamp

    i’d bet that Jesus’ eyebrows weren’t groomed within an inch of their lives like this guy’s
