Someone dust off the gold lamé booty shorts and preemptively tell Sly Stallone to take a seat because we've got a new Rocky!

Fox has announced some additional roles for its upcoming remake of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show. As you may know, Orange is the New Black's Laverne Cox will play Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the "sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania," made famous by Tim Curry in the 1975 film. Professional pretty person Staz Nair will play the object of Cox's obsession, the titular Rocky Horror.

The Russian/Indian model, actor and singer-songwriter was a former contestant on X-Factor UK and is noticeably taller, darker and handsomer than previous incarnations of the scantily-clad "monster." A quick stalking perusal of Nair's Instagram, however, proves he'll have no trouble doing justice to Peter Hinwood's iconic tiny shorts.

According to Access Hollywood, former Nickelodeon starlet and current singer-actress Victoria Justice will play Janet Weiss, a role originated in the 1975 film by noted Oscar-winner/bad bitch Susan Sarandon. Her husband, Brad Majors, will be played by Ryan McCartan of Disney's Liv & Maddie fame while Penny Dreadful's Reeve Carney helps round out the cast as Riff Raff, the good doctor's not-so loyal servant.

Fox's RHPS has no premiere date as of yet, but you'll probably be able to catch Staz before then in the sixth season of Game of Thrones, which starts up again this April.
