Earlier this year, Fox announced plans to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show with a 2-hour TV special remake called The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event!

And according to reports, the lead role of transvestite mad scientist will be none other than… Laverne Cox!

The Orange is the New Black star was on the short list of potentials to step into the role played by Tim Curry in the original 1975 film!

Other big names reportedly up for the role were Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman, and Channing Tatum — but it looks like Cox will get the honor of playing the sweet transvestite from Transylvania!

Fox has yet to announce the official casting news, but we think there's nothing else to consider — because we're sure the transgender actress will be fab!
