Fox network announced back in October that Laverne Cox was cast to carry on Tim Curry’s legacy in a tv remake of the iconic “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, expected to premiere fall of 2016.
Curry, the original “Frank-N-Furter” in the 1975 film, has been set to return for the Fox TV remake. In this version, however, he’ll nix the corset for the part of the criminologist narrator, the network told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Friday.
Adam Lambert, Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan are also scheduled for the project, contributing to the cast as Eddie, Janet and Brad.
We’re totally in now that our original “sweet transvestite” is locked in to the project! Can’t wait!!
