Annaleigh Ashford is set to master another sexy character (if you’ll pardon the pun).
The Masters of Sex star has been cast as Columbia, the castle’s feisty live-in groupie, in Fox’s upcoming remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Ashford won a Tony award last year for her role in You Can’t Take It With You.
She joins previously announced cast members Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice (Victorious) as Janet, Ryan McCartan (Heathers: the Musical) as Brad, Adam Lambert (Glee, American Idol) as Eddie, Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful) as Riff Raff, Staz Nair (Game of Thrones) as Rocky; and Tim Curry (the original Rocky Horror) as the Criminologist Narrator.
Fox’s two-hour Rocky Horror is slated to air this fall, and will reimagine the cult-classic musical comedy, which was released in theaters 40 years ago and has spawned regular midnight singalong screenings and a Broadway spinoff in the ensuing decades.
