Tim Curry, who gained widespread recognition for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” over 40 years ago, is returning to the horror musical for its revival at FOX.
According to TheWrap, Curry will play the Criminologist Narrator in the revival. Commenting on his “Rocky Horror” return, Curry said, “I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event.”
Curry first played Dr. Frank-N-Furter in a 1973 London stage production of “The Rocky Horror Show,” which was later adapted into the cult-favorite 1975 film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Since then, Curry played other iconic roles in films like “Clue” and “It,” along with doing voice work on series such as “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Young Justice,” and on both “Batman Beyond” and “Batman: The Animated Series.”
Starring Laverne Cox (Dr. Frank-N-Furter), Victoria Justice (Janet), Ryan McCartan (Brad), Adam Lambert (Eddie), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff) and Staz Nair (Rocky), “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” revival airs this fall on FOX.
