Meet your new Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
Entertainment Weekly has published the first photo of Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox in character, alongside Dr. Scott (Ben Vereen), from Fox's upcoming live musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
To play the doctor from Transsexual, Transylvania — a role originated by Tim Curry — Cox says she drew inspiration from two glam icons. "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,'" Cox tells EW. "I think we mix up the look more than they did in the original. It's inspired by the original but it's really our own take. It's way more elaborate and couture."
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is scheduled to air in the fall, and also stars Victoria Justice, Adam Lambert, Christina Milian and Annaleigh Ashford. Curry is also involved in the production as the narrator.
