First Look at Laverne Cox in The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

EW has released the first image of “Orange Is The New Black” star Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the upcoming TV event “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”.

“We were on set and a reporter saw me and said I looked like the love child of Grace Jones and David Bowie. I said ‘That’s exactly right.’ I think we mix up the look more than they did in the original,” Cox told EW. “It’s inspired by the original but it’s really our own take. It’s way more elaborate and couture. [Director] Kenny Ortega had this vision that Frank was at this old theater and found these old burlesque costumes and is, like, using them and wearing them now but has altered them a bit.”

The two hour musical television event stars Laverne Cox (Dr. Frank-N-Furter), Victoria Justice (Janet), Ryan McCartan (Brad), Adam Lambert (Eddie), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff), Staz Nair (Rocky), Annaleigh Ashford (Columbia), Christina Milian (Magenta) and Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, who returns as the show’s Criminologist Narrator.

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” will air on FOX this fall.
