Adam Lambert Talks Glee 'Starchild' Role
Glambert seen performing with show's stars in video promo clip...
The former American Idol runner-up reveals that he will be playing a character called Elliot Gilbert (aka Starchild) - and also that he was previously rejected for a part on the show because he was "too old".
The 31-year-old said: "It's funny because I actually auditioned for the show years ago, before it started. Which was before I was on Idol.
"The casting director was like 'well I love your voice, but I think you're too old to be in the show'. So I didn't get it."
Glambert also hints that there could be a rivalry brewing between his character and Chris Colfer's Kurt.
"I don't know much about Ellie and Kurt's relationship yet... all I know is that Ryan said something about 'nemesis'.
"So I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm excited to find out."
The clip also features Glambert performing Lady Gaga's Marry The Night - with Demi Lovato as part of his backing band.
