Vanilla Ice is set to play Captain Hook in a pantomime performance of Peter Pan at a theater in England later this year. No, really. The show will begin its run at the Central Theater in Chatham, Kent on December 9th and will run through January 2nd.

This will be Vanilla Ice's first-ever pantomime performance, though he has experience as a dancer and has acted before, most notably in his 1991 star vehicle Cool As Ice. He has also appeared as a contestant on the British figure skating show Dancing On Ice, and will participate in a U.K. tour for the program beginning in April.

Here is a video of Vanilla Ice ice skating to his signature hit "Ice Ice Baby" on a recent episode of Dancing On Ice.

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination.

"It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
