‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Casts Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan


Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan have signed on to Time Warp with Laverne Cox’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter in FOX’s upcoming reimagining of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The former Nickelodeon star (Victorious, Zoey 101) and the Disney star (Liv and Maddie) have been cast as Janet Weiss and Brad Majors in FOX musical, which is set to air this fall on FOX. Brad and Janet, played in the iconic film by Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon, are a pair of sweethearts who stumble upon Frank-N-Furter’s castle and proceed to have their lives forever changed.

The project was announced in April 2015, and was described by the network as “reimagining of the campy horror feature, which, 40 years after its release continues to play in theaters around the world – the longest theatrical distribution frame for any film in history.”

Also joining the cast of the musical are actor and singer Staz Nair as Rocky, Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark) as Riff Raff, one of Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s loyal servants. Cox was announced as the latest incarnation of the sweet transvestite back in October 2015.
