Tim Curry Returning To Rocky Horror Picture Show! But Which Iconic Character Will He Be Playing For FOX?

no title

Dammit, Janet!

This cast just keeps getting better.

After Adam Lambert‘s addition to the upcoming Rocky Horror Show reboot, it seems as though FOX is on a casting spree!

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:

“I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event.”

This means that Tim will be narrating the whole thing as Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Reeve Carney, Staz Nair, and Adam Lambert get freaky onstage!

Plus, we’re glad to hear he’s feeling better after his stroke back in 2012!

We still have to get through Grease: Live before we’re treated to Rocky Horror this Fall… but we think it’ll be worth the wait.

Congrats on the gig, Tim!
