“You’re lucky, he’s lucky, I’m lucky, we’re all lucky!” Fox continues the casting of Transylvanians and others for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, its reimagining of 20th Century Fox’s 1975 cult classic. Christina Milian is set to play Magenta, a maid at Frank-N-Furter’s castle. Patricia Quinn played the character in the original.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet Weiss (Victoria Justice) and Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon the bizarre abode of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad scientist. She is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man (Staz Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Milian already has ties to Fox — she co-stars alongside John Stamos and Josh Peck on its freshman comedy Grandfathered and recurs as the voice of Esther on Family Guy.
