Teen Angel was played in the original 1978 film by crooner Frankie Avalon. 

He appears  during the song Beauty Drop Out which is performed by ditzy Pink Lady Frenchie. 

A new promo image shows Peter dressed up in character - complete with 1950s-style quiff, a silver varsity jacket and a pair of giant heart-shaped wings.
