Dr. Frank N. Furter has been found!

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!

Hugh Jackman Gets Real About His Emotional Childhood — 'From The Moment Mum Left, I Was A Fearful Kid Who Felt Powerless'

Hugh Jackman


In a revealing new interview, Hugh Jackman opened up about his painful upbringing that resulted in years of aggression, and how the stage is the only place he finds peace. The 46-year-old may star as Blackbeard in the upcoming flick Pan, but it seems he may relate more with the Lost Boys.

For the first time, he shared:

"I was volatile. My mum left when I was 8. My anger didn't really surface until I was 12 or 13. It was triggered because my parents were going to get reconciled and didn't. All those years I'd been holding out hope that they would."

With a guy as genuine and classy as the Australian heartthrob, you wonder where he channels the intensity for roles like those in The Wolverine and X-Men — and now we have a glimpse:

"There was this perfect storm of hormones and emotion. I've never said this before: I just remembered that we had those metal school lockers, and for some reason, half in fun, we used to head-butt the lockers until there was a dent in them. Like, who was the toughest and craziest?"

Who Would Hugh Jackman Want To Be The Next Wolverine? Find Out Which Hollywood Hottie Has His Seal Of Approval!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHugh JackmanComic Books

Do you agree with Hugh's choice?

Hugh Jackman won't be playing the iconic Marvel character much longer!

After Wolverine 3 is finished, that's a wrap for the actor's run as the clawed crusader. But, since the his 15-year superhero stint hasn't quite finished, the 46-year-old says he hasn't considered who would serve as his successor:

"I haven't really given it a lot of thought. I've been asked that question a lot, and I'm always like, 'I don't wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,' you know? I've still got one more to do. I'm sure they're already talking about it, and there's some actor [they've told] 'shh, keep it quiet but we want you next.'"

Because the studio has been very hush-hush about the man they're grooming for the role, the least the Pan star could do was offer up his prime pick!
