Sad news, ‘Glee‘ fans: The doctor is out.
Dr. Frank-N-Furter, that is.
Amid much buzz about which original cast members of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘ would partake in the Fox series’ Halloween-time homage to the cult sensation, a spokesperson for Tim Curry tells Fancast, “He will not be doing it.”
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.
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.
