The 80s hit movie Annie is heading to the big stage…again! NBC’s adaptation of Annie Live! will air on December 2nd and they’ve just cast Miss Hannigan.

Oscar and Emmy nominated actor Taraji P. Henson will take over the reigns of the iconic villainous Miss Hannigan. Henson has big shoes to fill following in the footsteps of the great Carol Burnett from the 1982 film.

“Carol Burnett, who brought Miss Hannigan to life in the classic 1982 movie, is someone I have studied and idolized as far back as I can remember,” Henson said. “So when the opportunity came to me to join NBC and this incredible group of producers, I jumped. Carol, I hope to do you proud.”
