Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has been cast as Dr Frank N Furter. Adam Lambert has previously said he was also offered the role but turned it down, saying Laverne is a “brilliant” choice insteaad.

“It’s so appropriate, you know what I mean? And to re-imagine the character, as well, because she’s entirely different,” he told Idolator.

“It’s very forward thinking and it feels very right now, which is going to make this remake really interesting.”
