Actress and recording artist Victoria Justice (“Victorious”) and Ryan McCartan (“Liv & Maddie,” “Heathers the Musical”) have been cast as “Janet Weiss” and “Brad Majors” in THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, which is set to shoot this winter and air Fall 2016 on FOX.
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW follows sweethearts Janet (Justice) and Brad (McCartan), who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a 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. Actor and singer Staz Nair will star in the role.
Reeve Carney (“Penny Dreadful,” “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark,”) has been cast as “Riff Raff,” one of Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s loyal servants. Carney originated the role of “Peter Parker/Spider-Man” in the smash Broadway production “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” under the direction of Julie Taymor, with music by U2’s Bono and The Edge. Additional cast members to be announced.
Executive-produced by Lou Adler (Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee), Gail Berman (TV, film and Broadway producer) and Kenny Ortega (“High School Musical” franchise, “This Is It,” “Descendants,” “Hocus Pocus,” “Newsies”), the two-hour event is a reimagining of the cult classic, which is celebrating 40 years of theatrical distribution – longer than any other film in history. One of the most popular films of all time, it still plays in movie theaters around the world.

The 22-year-old, originally from Hollywood, FL, stars as “Naomi” in the indie romantic comedy “Naomi + Ely’s No Kiss List,” which is available now on iTunes.

Justice also is a successful recording artist, selling more than three million singles. Her vocal talents are showcased on the “Victorious” soundtracks, the first of which debuted at No. 5 on the Top 200 charts.
