*“America’s Got Talent” judge Melanie “Mel B” Brown has been cast as jailed killer Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical “Chicago.”
Scary Spice stars her run at the Ambassador Theatre on Dec. 28, according to reports. She follows a list of big names in the role, including Marilu Henner, Ashlee Simpson and Christie Brinkley.
In addition to the Spice Girls and her current “AGT” gig, Brown’s entertainment resume includes being a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” and a judge on the Australian edition of “The X Factor.”
Set in the 1920s, “Chicago” is a scathing satire of how show business and the media make celebrities out of criminals.
