Adam Lambert Joins Glee Cast
Show creator Ryan Murphy confirms that Idol runner-up is on board...
Taking to Twitter, Murphy wrote: "I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall."
Details of the one-time American Idol contestant's character have yet to be released and it is not clear for how long he will be a cast member.
Lambert has previously said that he would love to appear on the hit US musical drama, and he follows in the footsteps of another Idol star, Jessica Sanchez, who was cast as a rival Glee club singer last year.
It could turn out to be a busy year for Glambert. Last year he expressed a keen interest in joining the Idol judging panel.
And with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson all quitting the show, there could still be a seat going for the Strut singer.
