Mario has been cast as Benjamin Coffin III and Tinashe - who is hot off Dancing With The Stars - as Mimi Marquez.

"Hamilton" star Jordan Fisher will play the show's narrator, the aspiring filmmaker Mark Cohen.

Keala Settle will perform Seasons Of Love and join the ensemble in the live musical.

The Broadway production closed in 2008 after a 12-year run. A movie adaptation starring many original cast members and Rosario Dawson premiered in 2005.

As BroadwayWorld reported earlier today, FOX has just announced casting for Rent, airing January 27, 2019.
