Adam Lambert as "Eddie"
Singer Adam Lambert has taken on the role of "Eddie" in the FOX remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show
. The role was originally executed by Meatloaf, whose single "I'd Do Anything for Love" you may remember. Recently, Meatloaf reminisced about his role in the movie, telling WJBD Radio
: The only thing that I can explain about "Rocky Horror" is there's a line in it and it says, 'Don't dream it; be it.' ... If you want something, go and work for it! And that's what I've done.
The character Eddie doesn't have a huge role in the movie, but it is an important role. When Lambert accepted the role, joining the cast, he told FOX
: 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 OK to celebrate my weirdness. Hallelujah, bless my soul! I love that old time rock-n-roll!
