Adam Lambert Joins ‘Glee’ — Ryan Murphy Says He’s Joining The Cast In The Fall
“I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall,” Ryan tweeted on July 10.
This news comes almost four years after it was originally reported that Adam, 31, would star on Glee, HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine reports.
Unfortunately, there are no details on what Adam’s role will be on the show, and whether he will be a guest or regular cast member. However, there’s certainly room for him to take a full-time residency in Lima.
Fox recently confirmed four cast members will not be returning as series regulars in the fall.
