He’s got the looks. He’s got the attitude. Is that…Simon Cowell sitting on that throne in the picture above?!
No, no. That’s not the King of Criticism. It’s his X Factor musical counterpart!
Yup. This X Factor stage production is ACTUALLY happening, and soon!
The live show, which is actually called, I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical, is set to open at the end of March!
The man who landed the part of Simon is named Nigel Harmann, an Olivier Award winner and star of such other London stage shows as Shrek and Guys and Dolls.
Downton Abbey fans might also recognize him from the Season 4 premiere!
The show will also star Victoria Elliot as Jordy and Alex Knight as Louis!
So far we give a big thumbs up to the casting department!
But what do you think, Perezcious Readers? Will this new musical be a British delicious treat! Or will it fall flat on its face and get a ‘NO’ from audiences?
