Annaleigh Ashford has joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming adaptation of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
The Tony-winning actress will play Columbia, the castle’s feisty live-in groupie, when the two-hour event airs in the fall.
The cast of the two-hour event also includes Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, Adam Lambert as Eddie, Reeve Carney as Riff Raff, Staz Nair as Rocky and original Frank-N-Furter Tim Curry as the show’s Criminologist Narrator.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” follows sweethearts Janet and Brad, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist – with the help of his faithful servants, Riff Raff and Magenta – 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.
