SEBASTIAN BACH Has 'Huge' Acting Role Coming Up

Fans of the Showtime series "Californiacation" got a special surprise on this week's episode when Sebastian Bach had a guest role on the show. The former SKID ROW rocker is no stranger to acting, having appeared on the silver screen, the small screen and the Broadway stage, and he revealed to VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner that he's got a pretty big role coming up, but wouldn't divulge too many details.

"There's a huge role coming up that I can't, I don't think that I can tell you yet, I can't tell you yet," he said. "It's something that will be very surprising to the world and it's already confirmed but I'm not allowed to announce it yet. It's a big fucking deal."

Asked if the role would involve the stage, Bach said: "I'm not really allowed to announce really what is happening but I have starred in four Broadway musicals and once you prove to the Broadway world that you can pull off four leading roles, then they kind of say, 'Okay, maybe we'll ask him to do a fifth.' (Sings Ba-ba-ba-ba!) It could involve jazz hands. [laughs]"

In a June 2012 interview with Sonic Shocks, Bach stated about whether he had ever considered being a part of a musical like "Rock Of Ages" after previously doing both "Jekyll & Hide" and "Jesus Christ Superstar": "I was the first person they asked to do Stacee Jaxx [Tom Cruise's character in the 'Rock Of Ages' movie] on Broadway. I was the very first person they asked. They wanted me to do that for years. They wanted me to do it when it was off Broadway. And they wanted me to do it when they wanted to move on Broadway. But I don't know if I want to sing other people's music every night when I have my own music. When I did 'Jekyll & Hide', that was a story. 'Jesus Christ Superstar' was a story. That's a whole different thing; that's like legitimate theater. 'Rock Of Ages' is, like… I just don't know if I could get ready every night to sing BON JOVI and POISON. I don't know if I would be in a great mood doing that when I have my own music."
