More songs, characters appear in new promo for Fox's Rocky Horror remake

Rocky Horror Picture Show Fox Laverne Cox

We've been following Fox's remake of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW for some time now, and while they've dumped out a ton of promo videos for the show, we haven't seen much more than Laverne Cox and "The Time Warp." Until now...

This new promo shows off a wide array of new characters and songs (including the much-ballyhooed Adam Lambert as Eddie, mutton chops and all), including snippets of "Dammit Janet," "Sweet Transvestite," and "Hot Patootie." It still looks like a goth kid's birthday party, but I'm actually warming to the idea. A little. Maybe. Check it out for yourself below!

A reimagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts JANET (Victoria Justice, “Victorious”) and BRAD (Ryan McCartan, “Liv & Maddie,” “Heathers the Musical”), who stumble upon DR. FRANK-N-FURTER’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, “Orange is the New Black”) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of ROCKY HORROR – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.

Actor and singer Staz Nair (“Game of Thrones”) will star in the role of Rocky. Also featured in the event are AMERICAN IDOL alum Adam Lambert as EDDIE, Reeve Carney (“Penny Dreadful,” “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark”) as RIFF RAFF, Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford (“Sylvia,” “You Can’t Take It With You,” “Masters of Sex”) as COLUMBIA, Christina Milian (“Grandfathered”) as MAGENTA, Ivy Levan as USHERETTE, Tony Award winner Ben Vereen (“Pippin”) as DR. EVERETT SCOTT and Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, as the show’s CRIMINOLOGIST NARRATOR. Celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution – longer than any other film in history – “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is one of the most popular films of all time, and still plays in movie theaters around the world.

ROCKY HORROR will take the stage once more on October 20th.
