“Im lucky, your lucky we’re all lucky!” she tweeted after the announcement with one of the 1975 production’s most famous lines.
Milian will join a cast that already includes Laverne Cox, who will play the iconic Dr. Frank-N-Furter; Victoria Justice, who’ll play Janet (a role originated by Susan Sarandon); Ryan McCartan, who will play Brad; and Adam Lambert, who will play Eddie (a role originated by Meat Loaf). Staz Nair, Annaleigh Ashford and original film star Tim Curry will also appear in the two-hour production.
Fox first announced the Rocky Horror remake in April 2015, but noted that where other recent network remakes like Grease or The Wiz have been live, Rocky Horror will be prerecorded. Kenny Ortega, known for his work on High School Musical, will direct, produce and choreograph the show.
