NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Seal, the four-time Grammy award winner with hits including 'Kiss From A Rose' and 'Fly Like An Eagle,' will make his acting debut as Pontius Pilate in the live musical event, 'The Passion,' airing Sunday at 8 p.m. on FOX.
"We do the first dress rehearsal tomorrow and there is one after that," said Seal.
The singer and actor heads to New Orleans on Thursday where the story about the crucifixion of Jesus will be told with a modern twist.
As far as being nervous about the live performance, the London native who has called Los Angeles home for the past 26 years says, "it's a healthy nervousness."
"I bumped into William H. Macy, he's a great guy, and he gave me some tips, so I'm in great hands," said Seal.
