‘Glee’ tunes up ‘Rocky Horror,’ Meat Loaf, Barry Bostwick aboard
HollywoodNews.com: “Glee” really knows how to do the “Time Warp,” “Rocky Horror Picture” style.
While it’s not news that the show will have a tribute to the 1975 cult musical film on October 26, E! reported that the original castmembers from the film – Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick will guest star on the hit Fox show as TV station majors, who have a pitch for Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester.
In the original film, Meat Loaf played “Eddie, Ex Delivery Boy” while Bostwick portrayed nerdy boyfriend of Janet (Susan Sarandon), Brad Majors. Sarandon would love to appear, but there’s no deal on the table. Also, no word if Tim Curry aka Dr. Frank-N-Furter would make an appearance in drag or if the original “Rocky” creator and hunchback Richard O’Brien would dance alongside the Gleeks.
Buzz is that McKinley High will recreate the popular stage production. We don’t know if the jocks will be providing sassy callbacks to the Gleeks on stage. Due to the kitschy nature of “Rocky Horror,” it’s always customary for audience members to yell back insults at the characters’ zany situations on screen.
E! learned about the past “Rocky Horror” lives of the “Glee” cast: Matthew Morrison appeared in the show on Broadway and Jayma Mays sang “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a Touch Me” as her audition song.
