Lambert has been cast as Eddie, a
rock-n-roller who crashes the party at Frank-N-Furter's castle.
“I grew up watching Rocky Horror,
but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision,”

okay to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love
that old time rock-n-roll!”

previously announced Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Ryan McCartan
as Brad, Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Victoria Justice as Janet and
