Fox has officially announced that Tony Award winner, Annaleigh Ashford, has joined the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show remake, which begins production next month.
Ashford will play Columbia, the castle’s live-in groupie. Aside for her Broadway work in You Can’t Take It With You and Kinky Boots, she also has a recurring role in Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet Weiss and Brad Majors, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous flirtatious alien mad-scientist, is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
The two-hour Rocky Horror Picture Show event will air in the fall of 2016 on Fox.
