Sources close to TheFeed are bristling at the rumor that Marilyn Manson will be playing Frank N' Furter in a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The role of the sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania was originated by Tim Curry, and launched a phenomenon that has lasted for 31 years and is still going strong, mostly at midnight showings across the country.
There's no word on who will be playing any of the other characters, or even if the remake is happening, but I would love to be the replacement for Meat Loaf as Eddie. I know I could do it.
I must start a letter-writing campaign.
