Out singer Adam Lambert and actress
Laverne Cox are among the stars in the Fox remake of the classic
Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Tim Curry pioneered the role of Dr.
Frank-N-Furter, a self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from
Transsexual, Transylvania,” in the original Broadway production and
the 1975 20th Century Fox movie.
In the television adaptation,
Frank-N-Furter is played by Cox, who in 2014 received an Emmy
nomination for her portrayal of transgender inmate Sophia Burset on
the Netflix comedy Orange is The New Black, making her the
first transgender actor to receive such an honor.
“The scale of the production is so
from the set. “It's just top notch.”
“How sexy is it going to be?” Cox
“Well, I'm starring in it, so it has
to be really sexy,” Cox answered.
Lambert plays punk rocker Eddie,
originally portrayed by Meatloaf in the film.
“He's a horndog,” Lambert said of
his character. “He's nasty.”
The Rocky Horror remake will air
October 20 on Fox.
