There’s a Tony winner over at the Frankenstein Place.
Annaleigh Ashford has joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming two-hour television adaptation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which airs this fall.
She’ll play castle groupie Columbia, who in “Time Warp” is memorably heard walking down the street just-a having a think. Ashford is a series regular on Masters of Sex and a veteran of the Broadway stage, having starred in Kinky Boots and Legally Blonde. She recently earned her first Tony Award for her performance in the 2014 revival of You Can’t Take It With You.
Ashford joins cast members Laverne Cox as 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 Tim Curry as the Criminologist.
Production on the televised Rocky Horror begins in Toronto in March.
