Victoria Justice (Victorious) and Ryan McCartan (Heathers The Musical) have been cast in the upcoming television broadcast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event – set to take the roles of Janet Weiss and Brad Majors respectively, originally made famous by Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. The pair will join Emmy Award nominee Laverne Cox, who leads the cast in the iconic role of Frank-n-Furter, originated in the cinematic version by Tim Curry.
The two-hour television event will air on Fox later this year, and is characterised as a modern re-imagining of the beloved classic movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has been celebrating its 40th anniversary.
