Adam Lambert Joins The Cast Of 'Glee'

(Radio.com) Adam Lambert is now officially a Gleek. The star confirmed yesterday (July 10) that he would be joining the cast of Glee next season.

Show creator Ryan Murphy was the first person to reveal the news via his Twitter, letting fans know that the American Idol alum would now be on the show, but chose not to give any other details. Hours later, Lambert retweeted Murphy's announcement, giving his own short, but sweet response to the new gig.

Murphy Tweeted, " I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall." and Lambert added, " I'm so excited!! ;)" and retweeted Murphy's message.

This news comes weeks after rumors started swirling that Lambert was up for one of the judges' seats on Idol. There is no word yet on whether Lambert will be a series regular leaving room for some to dream that the singer will pull double duty on both Fox shows.

There has also been no information given on whom he will be playing when the show returns for its fifth season this fall, which has already seen its share of cast shakeups. more on this story
