If you’re like us you’ve probably seen the Rocky Horror Picture show about two dozen times. If you’re like us you’ve been counting the days till the remake. If you’re like us you’re going to play this trailer on a loop.
Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black) stars in this not-exactly-live musical event, playing the role of twisted scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a role made famous by Tim Curry in the original 1975 film. In a twist of fate, Curry also appears in this made-for-TV remake as the Criminologist.
The cast also includes Victoria Justice (Victorious) and Ryan McCartan (Liv and Maddie) as the newly engaged Janet and Brad; Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful) as handyman Riff Raff; Adam Lambert (American Idol) as Eddie, a former delivery boy; and Christina Milian (The Voice) as Magenta, the doctor’s maid.
Check out the trailer below and then tell us if you’re as excited as us to see this brought to the screen.
Fox’s Rocky Horror premieres in October.
