The cast list for FOX’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is continuing to take shape.

The latest addition is Adam Lambert, whom FOX confirms will play Eddie in the network’s musical event.

“I grew up watching ‘Rocky Horror,’ but could never imagine that I would be part of this new vision,” said Lambert. “‘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!”

Lambert joins a cast that includes Laverne Cox (Dr. Frank-N-Furter, “Orange is the New Black”), Victoria Justice (Janet, “Victorious”), Ryan McCartan (Brad, “Liv & Maddie,” “Heathers the Musical”), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff, “Penny Dreadful,” “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark”) and Staz Nair (Rocky, “Game of Thrones”).

“Rocky Horror” will air as a two-hour event this fall. Unlike NBC’s live broadcast musicals and FOX’s own upcoming “Grease: Live” special, it will be a pre-filmed, pre-produced movie.
