Tim Curry Returning To 'Rocky Horror' In New Role For Fox's TV Remake

Currying favor with cult fans everywhere.

OK, so now it's official: this remake won't be as bad as "The Rocky Horror Glee Show."

Tim Curry, who played the original Frank-N-Furter in the 1975 film, has been tapped to return for Fox's TV remake. This time around, however, he'll ditch the corset for the role of the criminologist narrator, the network told reporters at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour on Friday. 

Reacting to this news like: 

The network announced back in October that Laverne Cox was set to carry on Curry's legacy as Frank-N-Furter in the remake, which is expected to premiere in the fall of 2016. 

Adam Lambert, Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan have also signed onto the project, rounding out the cast as Eddie, Janet and Brad.

But who cares about them now that our favorite "Sweet Transvestite" is back.
