Seinfeld and Dancing With the Stars favorite John O'Hurley will rejoin the Broadway production of Chicago in the role of Billy Flynn beginning December 8.

O'Hurley will play a limited six-week engagement through January 18, after which he will rejoin the musical's national tour beginning January 20. He first appeared as Billy Flynn in 2006 and has reprised that role several times since.

Perhaps best known as J. Peterman on Seinfeld, O'Hurley's screen credits also include Family Feud and SpongeBob SquarePants. Onstage, he has been seen in Pirates of Penzance, Gentleman Prefer Blondes, Brigadoon, and Monty Python's Spamalot.

Chicago also stars Amy Spanger as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton, and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine. The Fred Ebb, John Kander, and Bob Fosse musical is directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking (in the style of Fosse). This revival at the Ambassador Theatre recently became the second-longest-running show in Broadway history, and it is currently the longest-running American musical.
