Forty years after he first appeared as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the stage production of Rocky Horror in 1973, followed by the iconic film version in 1975, Tim Curry will be joining the cast of the 2016 revival.

The two hour TV production is set to air on FOX this Autumn, and has an all-star cast. Laverne Cox will be taking on the role of the “sweet transvestite” Frank-N-Furter, while Adam Lambert will take on Eddie. Former Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice and Disney alum Ryan McCartan will play young lovers Janet and Brad.

Tim Curry will play the criminologist, who narrates the entire show. It will be his first live action performance since suffering from a stroke in 2012 which has confined him to a wheelchair.

The production will be directed by Hocus Pocus and High School Musical director Kenny Ortega.
