Rob Halford Plays…A Priest!

I’ve always thought that Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford would make a good actor, and with his cameo in a new Virgin Mobile commercial, he takes a step in that direction, playing (naturally) a priest about to sermonize a flock of texting Crackberry junkies. This is not the first time the legendary screamer has been on camera outside of the music video world. He had a cameo as a porn store clerk in Jonus Åkerlund’s 2002 film Spun co-starring Mickey Rourke, voiced the characters of General Lionwhyte and The Baron in the Brutal Legend video game and has appeared on the reality shows Nitro Circus and Gene Simmons: Family Jewels. Who knows? Maybe Hollywood or Broadway is next. With a potential Judas Priest tour for the metal opera Nostradamus in development, the thought is not so far fetched.
