It looks like Magenta is Christina Milian's shade!
That's because the Grandfathered actress is joining the cast of Fox's reimagining of The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
Milian will play Magenta, the flirtatious maid who works in Dr. Frank-N-Furter's (Laverne Cox) castle!
But the "domestic", played by Patricia Quinn in the 1975 film, is also plotting a secret quest to return to her native planet of Transsexual with her brother Riff Raff (played in the new version by Reeve Carney)!
The 34-year-old is just the latest addition to the all-star cast — Cox, Victoria Justice, Adam Lambert, Ryan McCartan, Annaleigh Ashford, and Staz Nair are all ready to get their Time Warp on in the upcoming production!
With all that, PLUS the OG Dr. Frank-N-Furter Tim Curry returning as the show's Criminologist Narrator, this might just be the best primetime musical yet!
Are YOU excited for Rocky Horror Picture Show?
FOX just set the bar for live stage shows, and the Internet knows it.
While NBC was the first network to enter the live musical game, Grease: Live kind of blew everything they've done out of the water thanks to the audience, sets, and breathtaking talent from Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens, and the rest of the cast!
You already know how much we loved it, but what did Twitter have to say about the production?
Ch-ch-check out the best Twitter reactions to Grease: Live (below)!!!
This cast just keeps getting better.
And it was announced on Friday that Dr. Frank N. Furter himself Tim Curry will be joining the musical… just not in the role he's famous for.
The Clue actor portrayed Frank in both the original musical as well as the cult movie version, so Tim saw it fitting to release a statement about being selected to play The Criminologist this time around, saying:
American Idol may be ending, but the music's not about to die any time soon.
We were pleasantly surprised when we heard that FOX was entering the live stage show world against NBC with their upcoming presentation of Grease: LIVE, but their second announced production had us a bit worried.
You see, the network just released that Victoria Justice, Laverne Cox, Ryan McCartan, Reeve Carney, and Staz Nair had been cast as the leads in this Fall's Rocky Horror Picture Show… only it won't be live.
RHPS will be the first of the recent musical reincarnations to be shot live-to-tape, but we're hoping the news that Adam Lambert has officially joined the cast will more make for it.
That's right! It was revealed on Thursday that the Idol alum will be making his return to FOX for Rocky Horror as
Dammit, Janet — we love you!
Now, Fox announced that Janet and Brad, the young couple who stumble upon the Transylvanian abode, will be played by Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan!
The Victorious star will be playing Janet Weiss, famously portrayed by Susan Sarandon in the 1975 film.
McCartan, who was in Heathers The Musical, has been cast as her romantic lead Brad Majors — originally played by Barry Bostwick!
The television broadcast has also tapped Reeve Carney to play Frank's loyal servant Riff Raff, and Staz Nair for the role of Rocky Horror — Frank's hunky boy toy created for carnal pleasure!
With such a talented cast, we can't wait to watch this two-hour reimagining of the cult classic!
If only we could do the Time Warp to the night it airs! Let's see, it's just a jump to the left…
