Yesterday we all discussed how gay and amazing it was that Adam Lambert is joining the cast of FOX’s live television broadcast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show as Eddie, and I’ve been freaking out for months over the fact that Laverne Cox is going to play Dr. Frank N. Furter, but this?

Tim Curry will be rejoining the cast of the musical that pretty much launched his career in the extremely low-key role of the Criminologist who emcees the whole strange journey. He’s been out of commission for live roles since he had a stroke in 2012, but has made an exception for this mightiest of live television musicals.

Tim’s going home!
