First Look: Laverne Cox As "Dr. Frank-N-Furter" In Upcoming ROCKY HORROR Remake

Entertainment Weekly has a first look at OITNB star Laverne Cox as the iconic "Dr. Frank-N-Furter" and Tony Award winner Ben Vereen as "Dr. Scott" from the upcoming remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show:

You may notice that this Frank has a somewhat different look, and that’s by design (the costumes for this Show are by Tony-winner William Ivey Long).

“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 explains.

“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.”
