Keke Palmer is joining Fox’s Grease: Live as one of the Pink Ladies: She’ll be playing Marty, originally portrayed by Dinah Manoff in the film.

Palmer has plenty of musical experience, both onscreen and off. She previously played the part of Chilli in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story  and starred in Broadway’s Cinderella. She’s also appeared in TV shows like Key & Peele and Masters of Sex, and will be starring in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Scream Queens.

Palmer’s the third person to be cast in the live musical, which so far includes Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo and Julianne Hough as Sandy. The show is set to air on Fox in January.
