Corbin Bleu has joined the cast of the Broadway revival of Godspell at the Circle in the Square Theatre.

“He’ll play Jesus in the Bible-inspired musical, picking up after [Hunter] Parrish departs next month to begin filming the next season of Showtime skein “Weeds,” reports Variety.

This isn’t the High School Musical actor’s first stint on the big white way. Bleu made his Broadway debut two years ago in the musical “In The Heights.”

The actor will give his debut performance on April 17. Bleu can be seen next alongside Boris Kodjoe in the horror flick Nurse 3D.
