This year marks the 35th anniversary of the ultimate cult film/midnight movie THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, and while Fox Home Entertainment has a celebratory Blu-ray set coming October 19, Fox TV will pay homage in an episode of its hit series GLEE. And two original cast members will be joining in.
E! Online reports that Barry Bostwick, who starred as Brad, and Meat Loaf, the rocker who played ill-fated delivery boy Eddie (pictured), will appear in the episode as TV station managers who make an “interesting proposal” to ruthless cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, played by Jane Lynch. Susan Sarandon, who portrayed ROCKY HORROR heroine Janet, has expressed interest in taking part as well, but no deal has been signed yet. The show will feature performances by the regular characters of numerous songs from ROCKY HORROR (which GLEE lead actor Matthew Morrison once performed on Broadway), and airs October 26. It’s not the first network series to do the “Time Warp”; CBS built an episode of its crime drama COLD CASE around the movie and its songs in 2005.
