Tim Curry Of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' Suffers A Stroke
Actor Tim Curry of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" suffered a stroke recently and is at home recuperating.
According to British paper The Independent, 67-year-old Curry is doing just fine in his Hollywood home following what's being called a major incident.
Reports are conflicting as to whether Curry can speak or not -- it was initially reported that he was having a hard time, but his agent Marcia Hurwitz told the Daily Mail that, "He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour."
Curry landed on many a goth kid's radar when he portrayed Dr. Frank-N-Furter in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." If that movie (and the ensuing viewings in late-night theaters around the country) somehow managed to pass you by, here's a reminder of why Curry's cross-dressing character was so great:
