Glee is getting into the Halloween spirit by taking on the cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show. The show, which has paid tribute to everything from “bad” songs to religious songs to Britney Spears, will get some help paying homage from some original Rocky Horror cast members; Barry Bostwick and Meatloaf will be stopping by, but don’t be looking forward to them reprising their original roles. The Rocky Horror roles will be filled by the glee club members; early photos reveal Finn and Rachel as Brad and Janet, naturally, Kurt looking beyond perfect as Riff Raff and recurring quest star John Stamos as Eddie.

As all themed Glee episodes, the Rocky Horror episode has been garnering a lot of hype since it was first announced this summer. Glee has recently gained even more attention, although this time surprisingly negative, thanks to a racy GQ spread. Well, if anything will prove what a wholesome show Glee really is, its dancing around in underwear, transvestites, and a rousing rendition of “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me”.

Check it out and get in the Halloween spirit Tuesday October 26 at 8/7c.
