Passing HTML Attributes into EditorFor in MVC 3

I want to pass a @class =  attribute into one of my EditorFor() calls.  Something like this:

<%= Html.EditorFor(model => model.Name, new { @class = "myclass" }) %>
I cannot find an EditorFor() method signature that supports this.

This is a one-off so I don't want to dig deep and get into templates, etc.
How do I do this?

Is there any reason you can't use TextBoxFor()?  Or any of the other specific HTML Helpers?  They have overloads for HTML attributes.
