Adam Lambert was originally offered the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but was forced to decline as he was touring with the band Queen, which didn't allow him enough time to shoot all of the required scenes. Instead, he requested the smaller role of Eddie, and also suggested Laverne Cox for the role of Frank-N-Furter, as he believed that it was more appropriate for the role to be played by an actual transgender actress.

If you enjoyed the original---You should probably just go watch that instead
If the original "Rocky Horror Picture Show" is so bad it's good, the "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" is so good it's bad,"Good" in the sense that it is far too polished and glamorized to even come close to capturing what made the original so enjoyable. There was no sense of grit or earnestness when it came to the singing or the acting. As strange and incoherent as the plot in the original RHPS, the cast made you feel for each character and connect with them. In the new one, sure, the actors are talented but everything comes across as too neatly put together, and maybe it was the commercial breaks but there hardly seemed to be any real chemistry built up between the actors.
I don't know that anyone wanted a new RHPS in the first place. BUT, I think there was a chance that if this project were in different hands it could have been something uniquely its own. Instead, all of the edge is removed and I don't think there would be any reason to watch this over the other, beyond sheer curiosity.
