Adam Lambert cast in TV reboot of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” to air on FOX this fall
It turns out that Adam Lambert will be a part of the upcoming TV reboot of Rocky Horror Picture Show after all.
The Grammy Award-nominated rocker had been considered for the role of Frank-N-Furter that eventually went to Laverne Cox.
Instead, Fox announced today that Lambert has been in the production in the role of a rock-n-roll loving, ex-delivery boy.
‘I grew up watching Rocky Horror, but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision,’ Lambert said in a statement. ‘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 remake of the 1975 cult classic film will not be live as NBC’s recent musical remakes have been.
It is scheduled to air in the fall.
