This First Look at Laverne Cox in Rocky Horror Picture Show Is Going to Put You on the Slab

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW: L-R: Laverne Cox and Ben Vareen.

Symptoms: compulsive steps to the right, knees drawn in tight, pelvic thrusts. Diagnosis: insane. EW has a first look at Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Fox’s live Rocky Horror Picture Show production and, really, it’s perfect for relieving your tension. “I get tweets from people, ‘Please don’t f— up Rocky Horror Picture Show!’” Cox joked with EW. “I showed my brother pictures of me in character and he was like, ‘You were preparing your whole life for this.’” The show, which also stars Adam Lambert, Christina Milian and, thank the horny alien gods, the original Frank, Tim Curry, as the narrator, airs this fall. In the meantime, you should really see someone about all that shivering.
