The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again is a re-working of the 1975 cult classic film starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Meat Loaf as ex-delivery boy Eddie. In the 2016 production, singer Adam Lambert steps into the role as Eddie. The big difference between the two singers/actors, is that the role of Eddie made Meat Loaf famous. Lambert became famous in 2008, when he was the runner-up on the popular talent show American Idol. Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell album — a monster hit — was released two years after The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Based on the promotional photos for The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, Adam Lambert is playing a glammed-up version of the ex-delivery boy Eddie. Lambert’s Eddie has:
- Better hair
- Better makeup
- Better fitness
- Better fashion sense. See blue, studded leather jacket (with one sleeve!)
Fun fact: Lambert is the same age, 34, as Meat Loaf was when he starred in the film in 1975. The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again airs Thursday, October 20 at 8pm on FOX.
