The “Ghost Town” singer will play Eddie, the motorcycle-riding ex-delivery boy who crashes Dr. Frank-n-Further’s twisted party; the role was famously played by singer Meatloaf in the original 1975 film adaptation.
This marks Lambert’s third major appearance on Fox. In addition to coming in second place during American Idol‘s eighth season, Lambert also recurred in the fifth season of Glee, playing Elliott “Starchild” Gilbert.
Lambert joins previously announced cast members: Laverne Cox (as Dr. Frank-n-Further), Victoria Justice (as Janet), Ryan McCartan (as Brad), Reeve Carney (as Riff Raff) and Staz Nair (as Rocky).
