Glee is doing the "Time Warp"!

When Fox's hit musical series airs a Rocky Horror tribute episode Oct. 26, look for special appearances by two original castmembers from the 1975 cult-hit film, based on the popular stage production, which Glee will re-create at McKinley High.

So, dammit, Janet, who's coming by the show?

I've got the exclusive scoop right here:

Insiders tell me that Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick are set to appear in Glee's Rocky redo.

Bostwick played Brad Majors in the original film, and Meat Loaf was "Eddie, Ex Delivery Boy." The pair will play TV station managers who have an "interesting proposal" for Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. 

Fellow original castmember Susan Sarandon said earlier this week that she would be interested in participating as well, but no deals have been done.

We chatted up the Glee cast earlier this week and found out that many of the actors have close ties to Rocky Horror: Matthew Morrison did the show on Broadway, Jayma Mays sang "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a Touch Me" as her audition song, and obsessed fan Chris Colfer has been asking Ryan Murphy to do a Rocky Horror episode since day one.

Now, hit the comments with your Rocky Horror wish list: What songs should Glee definitely do in this episode?
