Fox's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" remake -- already set to become one of the great curiosities of the 2016 TV season -- has added Victoria Justice to the cast.

And Reeve Carney ...

And Ryan McCartan ...

AND Staz Nair, who has some fame in the U.K. as a former "X Factor" contestant and has generated additional interest (or intrigue) since joining the new season of "Game of Thrones."

Carney, now on "Penny Dreadful," is also of particular interest: He originated the role of Peter Parker in Julie Taymor's star-crossed "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." He'll play Riff Raff here.

McCartan (starring on the Disney Channel's "Liv and Maddie") and Justice will play lovebirds Brad and Janet respectively.

Nair, meanwhile, will be Rocky Horror himself, the creation of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Laverne Cox was cast in the lead role last October.

Let's see -- who's left? Magenta and Brad Majors. Fox promised additional casting announcements shortly.

Justice -- I don't need to tell you -- was a teen star of considerable wattage -- "Zoey 101," "iCarly," and "Victorious." Her post-teen role in MTV's "Eye Candy" based on the R.L.Stine book of the same name did not last -- cancelled after a brief run last April.

"Rocky Horror," meanwhile, arrives on Fox this fall. No launch date yet. Lou Adler, Kenny Ortega and Gail Berman will produce (Berman: former Fox chief).
