Fox has announced that Adam Lambert has been cast in their remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The 33-year-old American Idol and Glee alum will play Eddie, the motorcycle-riding ex-delivery boy originally portrayed by Meat Loaf in the 1975 cult-classic.
Lambert joins a cast that features Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black) as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice (Victorious) as demure Janet Weiss (originally portrayed by Susan Sarandon) and Ryan McCarten (Liv and Maddie) as uptight Brad Majors (originally portrayed by Barry Bostwick).
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet Weiss and Brad Majors, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous flirtatious alien mad-scientist, is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank's desires.
The two-hour Rocky Horror Picture Show event will air in the fall of 2016 on Fox.
