Whether you love him for his role as the Sweet Transvestite
in The Rocky Horror Picture Show
, the Lord of Darkness
in Ridley Scott's Legend
the clown in the TV adaptation of Stephen King's It
, Wadsworth the butler in Clue
, Long John Silver in Muppet Treasure Island
, his voice work for scads of cartoons, his countless theater performances, his many unforgettable, wonderfully strange guest spots
on various TV shows
, his absolutely amazing voice
, or for (quite possibly) all of these things at once, the fact is, you love Tim Curry.
Spare a thought tonight for this acclaimed, ubiquitous character actor, singer, dancer, and odd-looking, sexy little man. Tim Curry, 67, has had a major stroke
at his home in Los Angeles. Early reports said that he was left unable to speak, but his agent now tells the Daily Mail that he's "doing great (...) He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor."
