Does anyone here know of someone who can do a good Tim Curry impression? I mean, I tried a couple of times, and let's just say I'm not quite there (at least not yet):

Hopefully he gets back to acting at some point. Lately he's been eerily inactive as far as acting/voice-over work goes. I know he had a stroke last year but I find it sort of unusual that we haven't heard any updates about it.

I voted for Hexxus as my favorite role, but only because Long John Silver from Muppet Treasure Island wasn't on the list.

Tim Curry needs to play more pirates.

Alright, so I put the pieces together, and I realized...
Tim Curry COULD have been the Joker!

@RenoRebirth Yes, I believe he was cast, but for some reason he had to drop out.

@Polyester Funk Well I was watching a panel with Mark Hamill, and he said that the original voice of Joker was Captain Hook in the Peter Pan TV show. Which is what led me here.
He said that the studio didn't want voices that sounded too similar/recognizable compared to another famous cartoon villain, so they had to find somebody else.

@RenoRebirth OK. I don't know that I've ever heard the actual reason why Tim wasn't Joker. I read somewhere that he sounded "too scary".

Wonderful actor & does well at voice acting. He suffered a stroke earlier this year so that's not so good.

To think this man was both Nigel Thornberry and Professor Calamitous...my childhood is flashing before my eyes.

Happy Birthday Mr. Curry!
said at 5:00 PM on Fri Apr 12 2013
... Not to mention that he is a unique and wonderful singer! He made three albums in the late '70s/early '80s, and -except for minor successes of a single or two- his music career never really "blossomed." Thank goodness for the internet and YouTube, which have posted many of these gems in the last few years. The man and his voice are truly treasures!

He's like the British version of Mako Iwamatsu.

Ahhh, Mr. Curry. He's quite versatile in the roles he plays. From the lovable, yet out there, Nigel Thornberry to the man the that you would just LOVE to stab a dagger into his neck as the deceitful scum as Rendon Howe...You sir, are QUITE the legend.

Here's to you. :)

He just has such a unique voice. It all started with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and he has graced the screen and animated films ever since.
