Janet! Dr.Scott! Janet?! Brad! Laverne Cox? UGH! – Laverne Cox Cast As Frank-N-Furter In RHPS Re-Make

Beam me up Scottie because it what has to be the worst miscasting of the decade, it has been “officially” announced that Orange Is the New Black transsexual actress Laverne Cox will fill the “sweet transvestite from Transylvania” role made famous by Tim Curry in an upcoming FOX -TV’s version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

 

I am so excited to be a part of #RockHorror legacy. #DontDreamItBeIt https://t.co/tzCOpz5NFC

The new “re imagined” version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show is the latest musical to be adapted into a television event and probably just as failed as NBC’s “The Sound of Music,” and “Peter Pan”

High School Musical’s Kenny Ortega will direct, choreograph, and executive produce. Which really about says it all.

And remember you are NOT allowed to disagree with this casting no matter how horrendous it is.  Because if you do you will be labeled either “transphobic” or a  “racist” or both

Well on the bright side at least this still means I have a chance of playing Mama Rose in “Gypsy” on day.

How do you like THOSE eggrolls Mr. Goldstone?

    Oh Will… you think you know us so well. Wait until you read my upcoming op-ed on the topic for the Advocate.

      Actually its not really a comment on “you/us” as it is as almost everyone being so “utterly pc”. The LGBT media are falling all over themselves and are oh so delighted over the casting because they are afraid of being called “Un-PC”

      And I do look forward to your Op-Ed:
