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!

The 31-year-old captioned the perfect pic:

"#AuNaturale #NoMakeup #NoFilter #NoWeave #washfacenobase #TransIsBeautiful"

She just looks amazing, don't you think?

In a recent interview, the beauty admitted that she didn't always feel great about her appearance, explaining:

"I have been picking myself apart my whole life."

But now, she's adopted a whole new sense of confidence, adding:

"Years ago, I wanted really highly invasive surgical procedures to feminise my face. All these years later, I have the money to do it, but I don't want it. I don't want it! I'm happy that this is the face that God gave me, and it's imperfect."

We LOVES that the actress finally feels comfortable in her own skin, especially if it means she'll be sharing more inspiring snaps like this one!

But Emma swapped out her pretty pink number for a slinky black gown, complete with a matching clutch and a whole assortment of jewels.

It's very American Horror Story-themed!

Meanwhile, the Modern Family starlet looked stunning in yet another body-hugging dress by Lorena Sarbu.

We didn't think we could love a look more than the red piece she wore earlier in the night, but this sparkling number comes very close!

And last but definitely not least, Laverne opted for another custom Calvin Klein Collection gown, this time with the cutouts in the front!

Such perfection!
