Tim Curry Returning to ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’
Curry will join singer Adam Lambert, who was cast as Eddie, the “rock-n-roll loving, ex-delivery boy” who crashes a party at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s spooky castle, earlier this week, and actress Laverne Cox, who is stepping into the lead role. “I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event,” a statement from Curry read. Victoria Justice and Disney star Ryan McCartan will also star as Janet and Brad – roles originated by Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick in the film – and Broadway’s former Spider-Man Reeve Carney will tackle the part of creepy butler Riff Raff, who was portrayed on stage and screen by the quirky musical’s creator Richard O’Brien. The musical will air on TV in America this autumn.
