Christina Milian has been cast as Magenta for Fox’s revival of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
In the cult classic, the maid and her brother Riff Raff (Reeve Carney) plot a trip together to return to their native planet of Transsexual.
The Fox reimagining follows sweethearts Janet and Brad, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. The sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of Rocky Horror — a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Magenta and Riff Raff are Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s faithful servants.
Previously announced cast members include Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, Adam Lambert as Eddie, Staz Nair as Rocky and Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia.
Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, returns as the show’s Criminologist Narrator.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” hails from Fox 21 Television Studios and The Jackal Group. Lou Adler, Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega will serve as executive producers. Ortega will also direct and choreograph.
Milian currently stars on Fox’s “Grandfathered.”
