Victoria Justice Wants to Be Dirty in New Rocky Horror Picture Show Clip
Victoria Justice has officially shed her Nickelodeon past in this new Rocky Horror clip as she belted out "touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me, I want to be dirty!" clad in only her underwear. Justice will star as Janet, alongside Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and Ryan McCartan as Brad Majors in the Fox remake of the cult classic movie, and we're already excited to see the full performance.
In the clip, Justice writhes around on an unmade bed with Staz Nair as Rocky Horror—Frank-N-Furter's hunky creation, clad only in those iconic shiny gold briefs—singing "Touch-A Touch Me," the song Susan Sarandon first made famous when she played Janet in the 1975 film. Justice wears the same bra and slip skirt Sarandon donned in the original, although her haircut is a little updated.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Fox will air a two-hour original special to honor the 1975 cult classic. This reimagined version will follow the same format as the film, with Laverne Cox playing Frank-N-Furter, the scantily-clad mad scientist who holds a Transylvanian science convention to show off Rocky Horror (played by Staz Nair), a muscley specimen created for Frank's pleasure. Along with Cox and Nair, Victoria Justice plays Janet, Ryan McCartan plays Brad, Christina Milian Plays Magenta, Reeve Carney plays Riff-Raff, and Adam Lambert plays Eddie. And don't you worry—Tim Curry is set to make an appearance as well! (Oct. 20, 8 p.m. ET on FOX)
The movie also stars Adam Lambert as Eddie and Christina Milian as her alien alter ego, Magenta, as well as Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, and Tim Curry, who played the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, returns as The Criminologist. The full-length trailer was released over the summer, and it looks like director Kenny Ortega stayed true to the original movie and the everything the fans loved about it, including audience participation. We are seriously so excited to do the Time Warp again when the TV movie premieres on Fox on Oct. 20.
