We got a new trailer for Fox's upcoming adaptation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show a few weeks back at SDCC, but we now have brand new photos thanks to People Magazine and they are showcasing the cast. This photo set includes Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice, Ryan McCartan, Adam Lambert, and Tim Curry — the only Rocky Horror veteran returning.
Although most people are still on the fence regarding this new adaptation, I think we all can admit that they are trying to channel the characters. I personally don't quite understand the looks for characters like Dr. Scott and Riff Raff, but it's not all bad. Either way, we will find out for sure this Fall when The Rocky Horror Picture Show airs on Fox.
