Gleeks Prepare To Visit Transsexual Transylvania!!!

It's going to be a pretty epic undertaking for an episode, but if anyone can pull it off, Ryan Murphy can!

There are some HUGE episodes coming in season two of Glee, from the highly anticipated Brit-Brit homage to the super-secret plans for a post- Superbowl episode. Still, one of the biggest announcements to come out of the gleek camp was the news that the show would be doing a Rocky Horror Picture Show tribute around Halloween!

The big question one everyone's minds, including the cast, is who is going to play who in relation to the movie. As the "closest guarded secret" on set at the moment, all the cast can do is pray they get who they want. Princess Lea Michele hopes she'll get Susan Sarandon's role, while Jane Lynch is aiming for the Narrator. Jenna Ushkowitz wants dibs on Magenta and Chris Colfer, well, he has his sights set high! He told sources:

"I pray that I'm Riff Raff because he's the best one. He sings 'Time Warp.' From the time we shot the pilot I've been stressing to Ryan Murphy how much I want to sing 'Time Warp.'"

Oh, let him do it Ryan! The kid got nominated for an Emmy! He deserves it!

But wait a second? What about the most iconic role of all?! Who is going to play transvestite Frank-N-Furter??

We got our money on either Matthew Morrison or Cory Monteith. Matt definitely has the legs to pull off those stockings, but there may not be anyway to avoid the inevitable Frankenteen / Frank-N-Furter comparison!

We hope you like fishnets, BB!

    What about Brad??? And my all time favorite, the lovely Columbia?!?



  2. 2

    ummm old news. i heard about this awhile ago.



  3. 3

    FYI… Frank N Furter didn't appear until AFTER Time Warp… So technically nobody should be playing him since he wasn't in it.



  4. 4

    Thats funny. I saw Matt Maorrison for the first time in 2001 in the Rocky Horror Show on Broadway. He was in the chorus but was U/S for Rocky. Maybe he can slip on those gold trunks.



  5. 5

    ADAM LAMBERT should be drafted in to play Frank-N-Furter!!! He already embodies the character. Its a perfect fit!



  6. 6

    Oh and Brad should be played by Cory Monteith, (so obvious) and Glambert can play off Cory and Lea's character - love it!!! DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!!



  7. 7

    NO NO NO! Yet more yawn-inducing tripe from this terrible show. Can't they just leave stuff alone? Oh wait, they're money to be made from idiots who buy their cds rather than get a superior original.

    I dont like Glee, I dont watch Glee, but I will watch this to see if they do justice to my favourite musical, if not, PREPARE FOR ANGRY LETTERS!!!

    I definitely think Puck should be Frankenfurter, he has the right sexual chemistry to play to both sexes and it would definitely make his character more 3 dimensional instead of just douchey.

    Cory for Brad and Matthew for Rocky

    I think Cory Monteith should be Brad - Frank should definitely be Mark Salling. He'd be sexy in those stockings!



  11. 11

    I said it before and will say it again: Prince Poppycock would be perfect for Dr. Frank N. Furter.

    Re: kea718 – actually in the original Rocky Horror Frank-N-Furter is in the Time Warp. Sweet Transvestite happens before TW. It didn't change until Tim Curry came on.

    I bet Jayma Mays sings Touch-a-touch me to Matthew Morrison. That was actually her audition song for the series.

    JAYMA is JANET
    shes just too perfect
    but i hate glee for trying to make rhps the new cool thing
    then mtv is going to want to make their remake again
    please dont ruin rhps
    but yes
    adam lambert is frankie reincarnated
    he is the only one that could do it
    and maybe justin from spw is a good riff raff

    UGH! This is going to be awful! Besides, isn't the content of Rocky Horror Picture Show a little, um, inappropriate for high school kids? Just saying…



  15. 15

    another reason to hate this show



  16. 16

    lol :D

    Brittany as Columbia… Fingers crossed!
