Adam Lambert has certainly made his mark since appearing on American Idol all those years ago.

Not only has the pop star's role as sometime frontman of rock legends Queen led Brian May to describe him as 'a gift from god', but he's put his stamp on a cult classic musical, too.

Fox are remaking 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show', which will air in the States on October 20th, and Lambert has taken on the role of Eddie, played by Meat Loaf in the 1975 original.

Other names in the remake include Laverne Cox and Reeve Carney, although Lambert is the only out-and-out musician on the cast list.
