Canadian Olympic figure skating star Elvis Stojko will make his professional acting debut as smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn in an upcoming production of "Chicago, the Musical."
Mirvish Productions is mounting the musical as part of its 50th anniversary season.
"People think of me as only a skater. What they don't know is that I love musicals," the Newmarket, Ont., native said in a statement.
"Now I finally have the chance to play a great role in one of the greatest musicals of all time. I'm very excited."
