Adam Lambert will play the role immortalized by Meatloaf in the coming television reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Yahoo reports:
“I grew up watching Rocky Horror but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision,” Lambert said. “Rocky Horror always made me feel like it was OK to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love that old time rock ‘n’ roll!” Lambert added, referencing the chorus from Eddie’s signature song Hot Patootie — Bless My Soul. (The actual line is “Hot Patootie, Bless my soul/I really love that Rock and Roll!”)
It was earlier announced that Laverne Cox will play Frank-N-Furter.
