The 49-year-old Broadway actor, who recently played Judas in the US touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” has been charged with obstructing Congress and entering a restricted building, office complaint says from the US attorney.

Investigators say Beeks joined the riots as an “affiliate” of the Oath Keepers, a militant extremist group whose members flooded the Capitol on January 6. He had paid dues to the group two weeks before the riot.

While the Oath Keepers are known for the military fatigues they often wear at rallies, Beeks – a Michael Jackson impersonator on the side – was seen wearing a knockoff of Jackson’s iconic BAD jacket from the 1987 tour of the late singer on January 6.

Investigators tracked down Beeks on his social media and while attending several of his shows, where he played Judas under the stage name James T. Justis.

On Wednesday, Beeks was removed from the “Jesus Christ Superstar” cast page.

More than 700 people have been arrested so far for their participation in the riot that day. On Tuesday, Adam Johnson, 36, one of the insurgency’s most recognizable faces, pleaded guilty to charges arising from the riots.
