Annaleigh Ashford, pictured below, is joining the cast of Fox’s TV remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show which will bow in the fall, reports Deadline.
She’ll play Columbia, the castle’s feisty live-in groupie played by Nell Campbell in 20th Century Fox’s 1975 cult classic (above).
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet Weiss (Victoria Justice) and Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon the bizarre abode of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad scientist. He is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man (Staz Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
Other previously announced cast include Adam Lambert (Eddie); Reeve Carney (Riff Raff); and Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, who returns as the show’s Criminologist Narrator.
Production on the two-hour event special begins next month.
