Curry of course played Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the aforementioned cross-dressing mad scientist who played host to mild-mannered Brad and Janet in the 1975 film.

Curry also is no stranger to TV gigs, having guested on ‘Criminal Minds’ and Syfy’s ‘Alice’ in the past year.

But speaking of Brad, the good news is that Barry Bostwick (‘Spin City’) is on board for ‘Glee’s ‘Horror’-ble tribute. As is Meat Loaf, who played former delivery boy Eddie on the big screen.

All doe eyes are now on Susan Sarandon, who last week shared her want to turn in a cameo, as long as she didn’t have to sing. Fox declined to comment on ‘Glee’ casting rumors, while a rep for Sarandon did not immediately respond to Fancast’s request for comment.
