i am so excited for this movie i cannot wait

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.


  • Me: Yeah! I am so excited! There is this massive movie premiere this weekend! I cannot wait! It is going to be such an incredible film!
  • Person: Oh you mean the new Star Wars film! I know I am so excited for it!
  • Me: Star Wars? I was talking about 1989 World Tour Live.

I’m super excited about Moana.

Not just because of the Pacific Islander PoC finally being represented and as a “mainlander” wanting to see that and have that represented in Disney and for little girls who are like Moana and see her as someone to look up to…but I am so excited for the music.

Lin is doing music for Disney.  Let that sink in.  Lin Manuel Miranda, who started with writing for a community paper and worked his way up to In The Heights which won Tony’s, this man who has created and inspired so many people to continue on and work hard for what you need, to never stop with Hamilton has now written music for Disney’s newest movie.

I cannot wait for the album to come out, because I probably have watched the trailers over 100 times just to listen to “We Know The Way”, if that even is the title of the song.  I haven’t had the pleasure to go and see Hamilton and many people haven’t, but listening to the album whenever I can…it has this essence about it.  It has this distinction, this power behind it and I cannot wait to listen to Moana and feel that power and go see the movie and support Lin.  Disney, sure.  This will be big for them.

But this is huge for Lin.  This opportunity to showcase what he can do with movie music is big, because that means so many more things for him to work on and put his power behind.

You go, Lin.
