Laverne Cox will play Frank-N-Furter in Rocky Horror Picture Show TV remake
Consider us officially shivering with antici...pation.
The news is out: Laverne Cox has been cast as the iconic Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Fox’s special remake of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Cox will have some big shoes to fill, since in our humble opinion, Frank-N-Furter is one of the greatest and strangest movie characters of all time, originally played in the 1975 film by Tim Curry. …
Cox tweeted about her excitement, saying, “I am so excited to be a part of #RockHorror legacy. #DontDreamItBeIt.” Cox is best known for her role as transgender inmate Sophia Burset on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, and even earned an Emmy nomination for her portrayal. She was also the first openly transgender actress to earn an Emmy nomination.
Y’AAAAALLLLLL. I cannot WAIT.
