American Idol may be ending, but the music’s not about to die any time soon.
We were pleasantly surprised when we heard that FOX was entering the live stage show world against NBC with their upcoming presentation of Grease: LIVE, but their second announced production had us a bit worried.
You see, the network just released that Victoria Justice, Laverne Cox, Ryan McCartan, Reeve Carney, and Staz Nair had been cast as the leads in this Fall’s Rocky Horror Picture Show… only it won’t be live.
RHPS will be the first of the recent musical reincarnations to be shot live-to-tape, but we’re hoping the news that Adam Lambert has officially joined the cast will more make for it.
That’s right! It was revealed on Thursday that the Idol alum will be making his return to FOX for Rocky Horror as Eddie, the ex-delivery boy!
You know, the one played by Meat Loaf in the movie!
Adam got his start in musicals before making it big as a pop star, so we’re more than confident in his abilities to take on the role.
Plus, he has like 10 months to practice, so he should be fine. LOLz!
Who do U think the Rocky Horror Picture Show special will enlist next??
