Adam Lambert To Play Eddie In Rocky Horror Reboot

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.
