Fox's Rocky Horror Picture Show has found its Janet and Brad. On Monday, the network announced it has cast Victoria Justice and Ryan McCarten as the sweethearts who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter's home after their car breaks down.
Justice and McCarten are both known for their roles in recent children's sitcoms. Justice starred on Nickelodeon's Victorious until 2013 and McCarten currently appears on Disney's Liv & Maddie. Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick originated the roles of Janet and Brad.
Fox's two-hour reimagining of Rocky Horror will also star Orange Is the New Black's Laverne Cox as Frank-N-Furter, an alien mad scientist who is celebrating the birth of Rocky (Staz Nair), an attractive man created to fulfill Frank's desires. Penny Dreadful's Reeve Carney will play Riff Raff, one of Frank's loyal servants.
The Rocky Horror Show will film this winter and air in the fall.
