Adam Lambert bursts into the Annual Transylvanian Convention in the bombastic new trailer for Fox’s remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The ex-American Idol star is set to play Eddie, the ex-delivery boy and former lover of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. In the latest trailer, Lambert belts “Hot Patootie — Bless My Soul” with outlandish zeal that does justice to the role’s original actor, Meat Loaf.
The rest of the clip features snippets of other classic Rocky Horror tunes, including Ryan McCartan as Brad Majors, singing, “Dammit Janet” and Laverne Cox as Frank helming a sultry rendition of “Sweet Transvestite.” And of course, no Rocky Horror clip is complete without an eye-popping tease of “The Time Warp.”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake will air October 20th on Fox. The new cast also features Victoria Justice, Reeve Carney, Christina Milian, Annaleigh Ashford and Ben Vereen, while Tim Curry — the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter — will make a special appearance as the Criminologist.
