Fox’s ‘Rocky Horror’ Taps Laverne Cox as Frank-N-Furter

Variety

Fox’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show” has invited Laverne Cox to come up to its lab.

The “Orange is the New Black” actress has been cast as the sexually ambiguous flirtatious alien mad scientist Frank-N-Furter in the two-hour event special, said to be a re-imagination of the cult classic. The part is most famously played by a leather-corseted Tim Curry in the film version of the musical, which turned 40 this year.
