Corey Glover isn't even an option...? He's pretty amazing. I gotta say Carl Anderson though... still, some people may prefer Corey Clover no matter how funked up his hair may be.

I'll be seeing him with Ted Neeley on the 13th! I'm glad to hear that he's really good in the role, because I know very little about him.

I thought Corey Glover was absolutely horrible as judas. Worst Judas I have ever seen or heard, he almost ruined the tour for me except the rest of the cast was so great.

anyways my vote is for Carl Anderson :)

I would say Drew Sarich but I'm already hated at the Les Mis forum for liking his Enjolras....I guess I would say.. oh screw it I'd say Drew!

Carl Anderson is, was, and ever shall be inextricably linked with Judas Iscariot in the minds of many JCS fans. Very few good or better performances will ever surpass the magic that Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson had as a team. All else is semantics and opinion.

I've seen Anderson both in the movie and on stage with front row seats. Nobody can touch his performance of Judas. He put a lot of passion into that part.

Ben Vereen was the original Judas in the original production and he earned a tony nomination for best supporting actor. So let's not forget him. I heard him on the ORC and he sounded fantastic.

Fixed it for you! 8)

Based on the film Anderson was sensational but Neeley left a lot to be desired for me.

Sadly I've only seen Glen Carter and James Fox in a professional staged version and neither was up to much.

Zubin Varla was supposed to be spectacular on stage but sadly I didn't see him perform.
