Lots of goodies are coming this October, one of which is Fox's remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring Laverne Cox as the spooky and androgynous Frank-N-Furter.
Yes, you heard us right. The reboot will air on Fox, a channel known for being not so shyly conservative. Maybe the network hopes to 'reposition' itself in casting a trans woman as the lead role, thereby winning over a younger, more socially aware crowd. Regardless, we think Ms. Cox will bring a wonderful new life to the beloved character.
The cast also features Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, Christina Milian as Magenta, Reeve Carney as Riff-Raff, and American Idol alum Adam Lambert as Eddie. Die hard fans will be happy to see that Tim Curry, the original transsexual mad scientist, will be making an appearance as the Criminologist.
Despite feeling those "please-don't-eff-this-up" butterflies, we're super excited to tune in this October. Watch the teaser below:
The Rocky Horror Picture Show will premiere on Thursday, October 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
