The Grammy-winning artist was cast as Eddie, the motorcycle-driving delivery boy who crashes Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s party. “I grew up watching Rocky Horror, but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision. Rocky Horror always made me feel like it was okay to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love that old time rock-n-roll!” the singer-actor said, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Lambert did audition to be part of the show, but he was eyeing the part of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. The role was eventually given to Laverne Cox (“Orange Is The New Black”).
This isn’t the first time Lambert is working in a Fox show, as he also appeared on “Glee,” which aired in the network two seasons prior, according to Variety.
The reboot comes at a time when “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is celebrating its 40th Anniversary on stage. Also in the cast are Stair Naiz, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan and Reeve Carney.
