Victoria Justice to Star in Fox's 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'!

Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan are set to lead the cast of Fox’s upcoming remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Also joining the previously announced Laverne Cox in the cast are Reeve Carney and model Staz Nair.

Victoria and Ryan will be playing the roles of Janet Weiss and Brad Majors, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter (Cox), a sexually ambiguous flirtatious alien mad-scientist, is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man (Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.

Reeve will be playing the role of Riff Raff, one of Frank-N-Furter’s servants.

Unlike recent musicals aired on television, The Rocky Horror Picture Show will be a two-hour taped event that will shoot this winter for a fall premiere.

    Pulease. Calling Frank-n-furter sexually ambiguous is just an attempt to justify casting Cox in the role. Frank-n-furter is a transvestite who are almost ALWAYS males…hence the song in the show. This was poor casting and a lousy attempt by Fox at pandering.

    It’s obvious the execs who greenlit this have no clue what made the movie successful (it wasn’t the movie — it was the audience). Good luck in their ratings bomb- get your resumes ready and start calling your contacts for that next gig.

    The original show was made in the 70′s. Get with the times, it has been re-imagined to illustrate today’s world. It is brilliant casting (Laverne is a super star). You will eat your words. BTW, it is being overseen by the original producer…

  • Dean Lewis

    you are wrong. The original producer is remaking this film (he knows a lot better than you).

    original producer would have made no money if the audience didn’t make fun of this film. It would have been a complete loss for the studio.

  • Brararar

    I’m cool with Laverne Fox taking to role of Franknfurter (although she’s got big shoes to fill), but who the hell are these preteens in the other roles?

  • Sabrina

    No, just no!

  • Chris

    Idiotic casting, and the original producer had little or nothing to do with the content, which had been developed, written and nurtured by others. It’s an embarrassment.

  • Dean Lewis

    You obviously know nothing about Lou Adler.

  • Dean Lewis

    but to say they have no clue? And you are the expert? OK, got it now.

  • Chrissy

    i might be — you have no clue either. when it’s a ratings bomb, will you be coming back to apologize?

  • Dean Lewis

    Well, if you look at ratings for musicals in the last year. Sound of Music – 18.6 Mill, WIZ – 11.0 Mill and Peter Pan 9.8 Mill. Compare it to Empire which premiered at about 9.8 Mill viewers. For RHPS to be a ratings bomb it would have to score far lower than Peter Pan (which is unlikely). I am sure it won’t be as good as the original. It will be different. It is a filmed movie (not live). Having said all of this, I’d be happy to apologize if it’s a bomb (though it won’t be). Will you?

    Also, I do have a clue – I am working on the show.

  • Chrissy

    RHPS is totally different from those.
