(Everett Collection)

Tim Curry is returning to the title that made him an iconic midnight movie sensation. 

The Emmy winner has joined the cast of Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show reboot as the “Criminologist Narrator” (yup, it’s an off-screen role).

Curry famously originated the starring role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, first in the 1973 London stage production of The Rocky Horror Show, and then most famously in the Lou Adler-executive-produced film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which premiered in 1975 and has been in theatrical distribution longer than any other movie in history. “I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event,” said Curry.
