TCA 2016: Actor famously played Dr. Frank-N-Furter in original version of cult musical

Tim Curry will jump to the left one more time in the Fox revival of “Rocky Horror Picture Show, ” Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden announced Friday at a TCA panel.

Curry, the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, will return to the campy horror musical as the Criminologist Narrator. Curry originated the breakout Dr. Frank-N-Furter role in the 1973 London stage production of “The Rocky Horror Show, ” returning to play the character in the 1975 Lou Adler-executive-produced film.

“I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event, ” Curry said in a statement.
