Because of course he is! Adam Lambert is joining Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show reboot. 

The Grammy-nominated singer and former American Idol has signed onto the network’s event movie remaking the 1975 midnight movie musical. 

Lambert will play Eddie, “the rock-n-roll loving, ex-delivery boy, who emerges at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s on a motorcycle and crashes the party.”

Says Lambert: “I grew up watching Rocky Horror, but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision. 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 two-hour Rocky Horror will air this fall.
