I wish him well too. He's not an actor that seems afraid to take on diverse roles.

Love Tim Curry, I always think of Home Alone 2 - "I LOOOOVE YOOOU!!!"
I always think of Rocky Horror - "Oh Rocky!"

And of course, IT "Wanna balloon, Georgie?"

Loved Home Alone 2. Didn't realise Tim was 67. Hope he makes a full recovery.

Agreed, the whole 'flames' thing was genius.

The Worst Witch was where I was introduced to Tim Curry too. I still can't help but ove the movie. Watching it is what I imagine an acid trip to feel like.
Me too.

Mrs. White: I didn't kill him.

Col. Mustard: Then why are you paying the blackmailer?

Mrs. White: I don't want a scandal, do I? We had had a very humiliating public confrontation. He was deranged. A lunatic. He didn't actually seem to like me very much; he had threatened to kill me in public.

Miss Scarlet: Why would he wanna kill you in public?

Wadsworth: I think she meant he threatened, in public, to kill her.

I watched Clue on Friday night and it really is a fantastic film. I really do hope Tim is recovering well. I can't believe he's 67 either - he seems timeless, somehow.

Guess what I was watch today, that I totally forgot Tim Curry is in it;

Muppet Treasure Island! He was really good as Long John Silver!

Exactly

I think I saw Tim Curry in Clue before I had ever watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I first saw him as 'Rooster' in the 1982 film, 'Annie' (with Carol Burnett, Bernadette Peters, Albert Finney, Ann Reinking and little Aileen Quinn). The entire cast was excellent and Tim Curry danced his socks off on 'Easy Street'. Showed himself to be a bit of a gymnast as well!

Sly played a 30s gangster trying to gentrify himself and Tim was some sort of speech therapist??
