'Rocky Horror Picture Show' Trailer Shows Laverne Cox in Action as Dr. Frank-N-Furter -- Watch!

Let's do the time warp again... again!
Laverne Cox is officially in character as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the new trailer for Fox's upcoming Rocky Horror Picture Show remake, which also features Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, and Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan as Janet and Brad.
In January, it was also announced that singer Adam Lambert would be taking over the role of Eddie in the remake.
The Orange Is the New Black star revealed to ET back in February that she received original Frank-N-Furter Tim Curry's blessing to take over the role for the cult classic film, which is set to premiere on Halloween.
"It's just a dream come true. It's so amazing," the 31-year-old actress said at the 2016 SAG Awards. "Just getting to hang out with Tim Curry has been a dream come true. He is hilarious and [I'm] getting to talk to him about the character and my sort of take on it."
This is just another project on what has been a big year for Cox. Season four of OITNB releases on June 17, and this fall, she will star as the first ever transgender series regular on the new CBS procedural, Doubt.
“I’m so excited,” Cox told ET at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday. Cox will play defense attorney Cameron Worth, who, according to the actress, is “extremely passionate about her work and has a little bit of a troubled private life.”
