Queen guitarist Brian May will appear as "God" for one week starting Monday in the London production of Monty Python's Spamalot. He filmed his part on Tuesday, saying, "Great fun... it truly was a liberating experience playing God... These Spamalot guys were great. They gave me great direction, but gave me freedom too. I think it will be fun on the night. My GOD will last a week - so book now to avoid …erm … disappointment!"

May will be competing with himself as the original production of he Queen musical, We Will Rock You, is still running on London's West End.
