Tim Curry’s Acting Legacy

Phew! It would be a real tragedy to lose Tim, who has left an indelible mark on the movie industry and pop culture in general. Playing the role of Dr. Frank N. Furter in the theatrical version of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tim made the leap to the big screen for the musical’s film adaptation. His performance is one of main reasons that the movie became such an international cult classic.

Tim has carried several other movies with his vivaciousness and charisma — Clue and the horror movie It come to mind. And who could forget his role as the snooty hotel concierge in Home Alone 2?

Tim is unmarried and lives alone in Hollywood Hills, Calif.

Again, it’s a huge relief to hear that Tim is doing well after this scary moment. Our thoughts are with him and we hope he makes a full recovery!
