Adam Lambert as Eddie in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'
Queen frontman Adam Lambert is set to perform 'Hot Patootie' in the new showing, taking over Meat Loaf's original role as the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding ex-delivery boy Eddie. If you remember the 1975 cult movie, you'll know that things don't end well for this sexy reprobate, who is also the one-time lover of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his groupie Columbia as well as a partial brain donor to Frank's creation Rocky.
'The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again' has been directed by 3-time Primetime Emmy winner Kenny Ortega ('Hocus Pocus', 'High School Musical') and the script used is the original from Richard O'Brien and Jim Sharman. The main cast consists of Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice as Janet Weiss, Ryan McCartan as Brad Majors, Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia, Reeve Carney as Riff-Raff, Christina Milian as Magenta and Ben Vereen as Dr. Everett von Scott. Tim Curry, who was Frank-N-Furter in the original cult movie, makes a comeback as the narrator and criminologist originally portrayed by Charles Gray.
The movie began shooting in 2015, and Adam Lambert is currently in Australia where he is filming the eigth series of 'The X Factor' as a judge alongside Iggy Azalea, Guy Sebastian and Mel B. Earlier this year he completed his Queen + Adam Lambert 2016 Summer Festival Tour which took the band across Europe and Asia, as well as his solo venture The Original High Tour.
'The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again' will premiere on Fox on October 20th 2016.
