Singer and “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert is going to be part of the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” remake on Fox. The special is expected to air on the network in the fall season.
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.
