Adam Lambert joins cast of “Candy Jar” as “Pop Rocks”

Adam Lambert, runner-up on the 8th season of American Idol, has joined the voice cast of Raja Gosnell’s‘s 3-D animated movie, Candy Jar

“I’m happy to be playing such an iconic sweet,” the singer said.

Lambert is the latest star to sign on to the big-screen adaptation of America’s favorite snacks.  Previously announced voices include: Ricky Gervais (the British version of The Office) as Cadbury; Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi (Jersey Shore) as Salt Water Taffy; Ellen Page (Juno) as SweeTART; Dave Chappelle (Chappelle’s Show) as Double Bubble; Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) as Peanut Butter Cup; Woody Harrelson (Zombieland) as Trail Mix; and Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) as Orange. 

This is the first in a series of planned movie adaptations of food.  Tim Burton is the rumored front-runner to direct Appetizers, with Johnny Depp in talks to play Bruschetta. 

April Fool!  No such movie…but you could totally see it happening, right?  🙂
