Fox’s “The Passion” has found its Pontius Pilate.

Grammy-winning singer Seal will play the Roman leader who put Jesus Christ on trial, leading to his conviction, crucifixion and resurrection.

Seal joins Tyler Perry, Chris Daughtry, Trisha Yearwood, Jencarlos Canela and Prince Royce in the live production, set to air on Palm Sunday.

Written by Peter Barsocchini, “The Passion follows the last hours of Jesus Christ’s (Canela) life on earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of contemporary popular music, sung by the cast, and arranged specifically for this event by executive producer and music producer Adam Anders.

Set in modern day, the event will follow the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth, as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas (Daughtry), put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected.

The event will unfold live at some of New Orleans’ most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of a thousand people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.

“The Passion” airs live on March 20 at 8 p.m.
