Victoria Justice has been cast in the role of Janet Weiss in Fox's upcoming remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show. Justice's role was played by Susan Sarandon in the original film.

Taking to social media to share her "big secret," Victoria Justice announced her new role via Twitter.

Victoria Justice then gave shout-outs to some of her cast mates.

Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox will star alongside Victoria Justice, too.

The Huffington Post isn't sure Victoria Justice in Rocky Horror Picture Show is good casting.

"But in what world does choosing Justice as Janet make any sense, apart from trying to convince audiences that she has shed her child-star persona in favor of some more controversial fare?" they ask.

"This is Rocky Horror not Spring Breakers," the HuffPost adds.

What are your thoughts on Victoria Justice playing Janet Weiss in Rocky Horror Picture Show? Will she pleasantly surprise her critics, or will this be another of those TV remakes that simply shouldn't have come to fruition?
