'Glee' takes on 'Rocky Horror': See Kurt as Riff Raff!

glee-rocky-horrorImage Credit: FoxWe already revealed that Glee would be paying tribute to the great musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but now the first photos of the cast in their ghoulish get-up are finally out. Click here for pictures of Dianna Agron donning a pink bob and tuxedo suit as a “Time Warp” dancer, John Stamos’ Carl as Eddie (the Meatloaf character!), and — thanks to that wry smile and creepy stare — Chris Colfer as a definitively spooky Riff Raff.

What do you guys think of the interpretation? Does it get you excited for some Halloween-timed Rocky Horror fun?

      ME TOO! I’m way more excited for this episode than I really should be. It’s a sad commentary on my life! But YIPPPEEE!! Let’s do the time warp again!!

      • LW6776

        HAHA yeah I second that!

      • tassha

        Love this!

  • jared

    I sure hope this means we’ll get to see Cory Monteith in his tighty-whiteys!

    • nodnarb

      I wish! Unfortunately, it’s probably not happening… they’ve already said they changed Rockey’s gold speedo to gold board shorts. :(

      • Bebe

        What pussies.

      • Josh

        In the movie, Brad appears in his underwear. Completely different character than the person who appears in a gold speedo.

      • nodnarb

        Yup. My point was that if they changed Rocky’s speedo, they’ll likely change Brad’s costume too.

      • Anissa

        If you click the link it shows Sam in the Gold gym uniform as “Rocky”

    • Natasja

      Actually Mr. Shue and Finn are going to be wearing a borat bathingsuit thingie i heard.

  • BlackIrish4094

    This is going to uck so bad.

    • Karrah

      You must uck pretty bad too

  • Jason

    Um, “Kurt Soller” as Riff Raff? I think you mean Chris Colfer.

    • Karen

      Kurt Hummel

  • PJ

    I’m sure it will be like the other tribute/theme episodes – not good.

    • Dave

      I agree. I have no idea how they can work this into the plot without it being absolutely stupid. I’m sure it’ll be fun it’s just not going to help the overall story of the show very much…

      • jen

        someone will probably go to the dentist…

      • nodnarb

        The Glee decides to put on Rocky Horror as a school play for Halloween. I imagine it’s going to be relatively light on storylines.

  • Julia Park

    Don’t you mean Kurt Hummel?

    He definitely looks the part!

  • Maya Trilling

    I think you mean

    a. Kurt Hummel
    b. Chris Colfer

    work on that!

  • silverrose

    cool, but who is going to be the good Dr.?

    • KS

      If it’s Mr. Shue, I’ll throw up.

    • nodnarb

      I was curious too, so I just googled it… Dr. Frank N. Furter is being played by Mercedes (Amber Riley). Apparently, the network was concerned about the transgender nature of the role. That’s some BS right there! Why bother doing it then?

      • Traci

        Please! FOX is insane. That makes no sense. How many TV shows have shown guys cross dressing through the years? Most of the time during Halloween episodes.

      • jen

        Oh geez. I love Amber Riley but that is just ridiculous. I thought Ryan Murphy was smarter than that.

      • Plotsky

        THIS is why the mainstream should keep its filthy hands off things the mainstream =already= rejected but the fringe embraced. It will be ruined:
        The story line will be watered down.
        Frank N. Furter won’t be trans.

        That’s bull at its highest.

      • Laura

        Mercedes?! I’m still really excited for this episode, but that news makes me sad.

      • Mikey

        After last nights girl on girl action they’re worried about cross dressing?!

      • Keezles

        Weird, because he isn’t transgendered- he’s a transvestite.

      • Caljit


    • Adrienne

      I’ve heard rumors that it’s going to be Mercedes…a truly disappointing casting choice in my opinion. It should be Puck.

      • Em

        Puck would be GREAT! As would Artie, though I guess he’ll be Eddie’s Dad…

      • Jen

        Mark Salling is promoting his new album, so he won’t be in the next couple eps, I believe.

      • Edina

        FIGGINS all the way.

      • Eliza

        Yes, when I was casting this in my brain, I knew Puck would be the only one who could pull off “Sweet Transvestite.” Mercedes?? What the heck??

      • fish eye no miko

        I was thinking Frank-N-Furter would be Kurt. Instead he’s Riff Raff? Weird…

      • Dalton

        but puck is thill in juvy remeber?

    • Diane

      Mercedes the last i heard. It makes no sense in my opinion.

  • Sarah

    Can’t wait! Looks like it will be good.

  • RB

    Rocky Horror, famous more for people dressing up to see it, than for its actual quality. Not a fan of all of Rocky Horror, and hopefefully, the dreadfulness from the original won’t extend to this nodding of the head.

    • Strepsi

      Could not disagree more. ROCKY HORROR is a great show and movie, with a wonderful message of sexual liberation and letting your freak flag fly, that is perfectly suited to Glee.

      And who can’t relate to “Don’t Dream It… Be It ” ?

      • Pamela

        Amen! Rocky Horror is amazing!

  • Maria

    i just hope this means that Mr. Schue/Matthew Morrison will be Frank since John Stamos is gonna be Eddie

  • wizard62

    Who’s playing Rocky, the gold bikini’d adonis?

    • nodnarb

      Chord Overstreet

      • Keezles


      • whatnowsucka

        ^ That’s EXACTLY what I said :D

  • Heather

    YES!! I was hoping for Kurt to be Riff just because vocally Riff is a higher pitched role. I’m so looking forward to the episode now!

  • The Real Dustin

    Man. An overhyped show shoehorning what made its first season good and self destructing. HMMMMM…and its on fox?! If someone had called this OC with singing last year…oh thats right. I DID.

    • Tom

      Chillax dude.

  • Kaelyn

    I don’t think Dianna Agron is a time warp dancer, I think she is Columbia.

    • Mark

      Columbia dances during the Time Warp. In fact, she tap dances and trips over the rug.

    • santana

      According to the site the info came from there are rumors Quinn will be playing Magenta, though that hair and outfit look a lot more like Columbia.
