On Easter Sunday, NBC mounted an ambitious live version of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar, starring musicians John Legend and Sara Bareilles, along with a host of familiar faces you may recognize from stage and screen.
One of the biggest crowd-pleasing moments came courtesy of a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer in the second hour, but genre fans may have also recognized a Rogue One star and a Broadway legend among the cast. Click through the gallery below to see who’s who and where you might’ve seen them before.
