Rocky Horror Picture Show, FOX, Laverne CoxWe know you’re shivering with antici… pation over the upcoming remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show, and now we have a better picture of the cast!

FOX is updating the cult classic musical for a two-hour event this fall — and the network has been gradually revealing the cast of this particular “Science Fiction Double [Hour] Feature.”

Dr. Frank N. Furter: Laverne Cox

This Emmy-nominated Orange Is the New Black star will lead the production as Dr. Frank N. Furter, the mad scientist and self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.” Tim Curry, who originated the part, will be the show’s criminologist narrator.

This up-and-coming actor — who recurred on the Disney Channel sitcom Liv and Maddie — will play Brad, one half of the couple that stumbles upon the castle and gets swept up in its debauchery. Barry Bostwick played Brad in the movie.

Janet: Victoria Justice

This Nickelodeon veteran, known by the tween set for her starring roles in Zoey 101 and Victorious, will play Janet, Brad’s new fiancée — taking over the role from Susan Sarandon. (Dammit, Janet!)

Magenta: Christina Milian

The R&B singer and reality star will play Magenta, a maid at the castle and a sister of the below-mentioned Riff Raff, taking over the role from Patricia Quinn.

Rocky Horror Picture Show, FOX, Laverne CoxThis star of stage and screen — best known for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Penny Dreadful, and Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video — will play Riff Raff, the castle’s resident handyman, played in the movie by Richard O’Brien.

Columbia: Annaleigh Ashford

This Tony-winning star of Kinky Boots, Wicked, and Rent star — currently playing Betty on Masters of Sex — will play Columbia, the groupie of the castle, a part originally played by Nell Campbell.

This former X Factor competitor and soon-to-be Game of Thrones star will play Rocky, a scantily-dressed hunk created to relieve Dr. Frank N. Furter’s “tension.” Peter Hinwood filled Rocky’s gold briefs in the original.
