|~ Brad awkwardly breaking the ice at Frank-N-Furter's party|
Brad Majors is one of the protagonists of the 1975 comedy/musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show and its 1981 sequel, Shock Treatment. He is a stereotypical 1950s-era "square" who wanders who, along with his fiancée Janet Weiss, wanders into Dr. Frank-N-Furter's castle and discovers his bizarre experiments.
He is portrayed by Barry Bostwick in the first film, by Cliff De Young in the second, and by Ryan McCartan in the 2015 live televised remake of the first film.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Brad is first seen at the wedding of his best friend Ralph Hapschatt, where he is the best man. After the brood and groom go off to the honeymoon, Brad approaches Janet Weiss and shyly makes small talk before declaring his love for her and proposing marriage, which she happily accepts.
That night, they drive through a dark stretch of woods to visit their old friend and science professor Dr. Edward Scott to tell him the happy news, when they suddenly get a flat tire. They walk to a nearby castle to ask to use their phone, and find it in the middle of a bizarre, sexually decadent party hosted by Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a self-described "sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania". Frank openly flirts with both of them, and invites them to stay the night and see the birth of his latest "creation", an offer they reluctantly accept.
Brad and Janet then watch with horrified fascination as Frank gives life to his creature, Rocky Horror, a handsome, muscle-bound naïve whom Frank intends to make his plaything. Brad is further discomfited by the arrival of Frank's former lover Eddie, who crashes the party and eyes Brad, Janet, and Rocky hungrily; moments later, however, Frank kills Eddie in front of the entire party.
Later that night, Brad is wakened by a figure he believes to be Janet, only to find out it is fact Frank, bent on seducing him. Brad resists at first, but ultimately gives in to Frank's seduction. Unbeknownst to him, Janet sees them together, and her heartbreak and jealousy drive her to have sex with Rocky. Brad later welcomes Dr. Scott in Frank's living room, and is stunned to learn that he is Eddie's uncle. At that moment, they walk in on Janet and Rocky together.
During an awkward dinner, Dr. Scott explains that Eddie wrote him asking for help in escaping Frank, which provokes Frank into revealing Eddie's mutilated corpse under the table. He then says that Dr. Scott is with the government, trying to find extraterrestrial beings such as himself. During the ensuing confrontation, Frank uses his transducer to transform Brad, Janet, Dr. Scott, and his servant Columbia into statues.
Frank unfreezes them and has them perform with him in a burlesque floor show, during which Brad in particular expresses all his repressed desires, passionately kissing every woman and man in the room. Just then, Frank's servants Riff-Raff and Magenta burst in and declare that they will return to their home planet of Transsexual; they then kill Columbia, Frank, and Rocky. Riff-Raff lets Brad, Janet, and Dr. Scott go as he and Magenta transform the castle into a spaceship and fly away, leaving Brad and Janet dazed and crawling toward each other.
