Clay Aiken, the biggest superstar to come out of American Idol who didn’t actually win the contest, will join Monty Python’s Spamalot production as Sir Robin, starting Jan. 18.
“Clay Aiken is amazing beyond that glorious voice. Turns out he is an excellent comic actor and a master of character,” said director Mike Nichols in a release. “People will be surprised by his wide ranging talent, since the first impression is of great country charm and a singer to remember. This guy is not only a star, he is a lot more. We are lucky to get him for Spamalot.”
