Aw! What happened? We would have LOVED to have seen him do this!
Sources are confirming that in an original draft of The Rocky Horror Glee Show, John Stamos was meant to play the sweet tranvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter instead of Amber Riley!
Inspired choice! He would have totally rocked it!
Problem was, when the network got their hands on the first draft of the script, their fishnets got into a twist and they didn't like Stamos in the role. When asked about it, John told sources:
“I was supposed to be doing ‘Sweet Transvestite,’ but I think the network saw the script and was like, ‘Stamos in fish nets? It’s too soon!’ So they switched it up. I was bummed, because I wanted to play that part.”
We're bummed too!
It's no offense to Amber, but John really has the legs for the part! LOLs!
Would U had rather seen Uncle Jesse don the corset and stockings or are U happy they went with Amber?

OMG, YES PLEASE!!
Glee creator Ryan Murphy may have just finished doing a Glee episode dedicated to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but sources say this won't be the last time his name will be attached to Rocky Horror.
Sources say he's currently negotiations to direct a remake of the classic 1975 hit musical and could even have a deal made with Fox 2000 by the time the Glee episode airs October 26.
The original movie has grossed more than $100 million with midnight shows still going strong and is considered to be the longest running theatrical release in film history.
This could be a great opportunity for Murphy and with his ability to portray musical and comedic talent on screen, this would be a great partnership.
We say, DO IT!!

This is pretty disappointing!
Although original Rocky Horror castmembers Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick are signed on to appear in the film's upcoming tribute on Glee, Tim Curry, who played the iconic Dr. Frank-N-Furter, has reportedly turned down the opportunity to appear on the smash series!
His spokesperson reveals:
"He will not be doing [Glee]."
We definitely think they should grab Susan Sarandon while she's still interested, then!
She'd probably be HIGHlarious!
What do U think?? Are U disappointed that there will be no Frank-N-Furter??

When Susan Sarandon heard that Glee was preparating an episode devoted to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the actress said that she would consider getting involved - if they asked her!
“Depending on what they wanted me to do. I’m not really a singer, so I wouldn’t be very out there. I’m a terrible singer. But I’m flattered they want to do it.”
I don’t really have a TV, but when I was on location in New Orleans, I saw it [Glee] and I was very moved and I thought it was really well done and fun. I liked it. I can’t say I’ve seen a lot of the episodes. I’ll wait for the boxed set.”
We would LOVE to see her don a corset again! She's still got it!
