Alex Lambert joining If I Can Dream cast, cut his hair

American Idol 9 semi-finalist Alex Lambert, who was surprisingly eliminated just before the finals, will move into the If I Can Dream house tomorrow and join its cast.

Typically, contestants can’t do any such projects, especially not while the show is on the air, but the web series is produced by Idol creator Simon Fuller and owned by its parent company, CKX. A petition to bring Alex back to the Fox series “played no small part in his ‘If I Can Dream’ campaign,” according to the L.A. Times.

The show follows a group of people pursuing careers in entertainment who live in Hollywood and have their lives are streamed on the Internet 24/7 and featured in episodes that air on Hulu. Alex joins Giglianne Braga, Ben Elliott, Justin Gaston, Kara Killmer, and Amanda Phillips.

As to his iconic mullet, Alex recently got a hair cut. “I still have a mullet a little bit. It’s just hair. It’ll grow back,” he told People.
