Another post stroke interview with him during the Rocky Horror Picture Reunion!


Seems like he's making great progress. It sounds like he can speak more clearly.

There's an interview with him post-stroke as well!


I have to admit, for someone who had a stroke he can speak pretty darn clearly. Depending on how fast he recovers we may not see him in much live action stuff, but at least he'll still be capable of some voicework.

@LordofEvil96 He sounds pretty good. Not sure if he can say much at a time given his answers, but his voice is still good considering what happened to him.

Good news, everyone!


He doesn't look so hot (neither would I after having a stroke), but hey, at least he's out-and-about!

@TylerMirage It is kind of sad to see him like this, but on the other hand I am glad to see him out and about. Recover well Tim!

I'm surprised that this guy hasn't gotten a role in Adventure Time yet

I find it wonderful that the two greatest masters of animated villainy (Hans Conried and Tim Curry) were born in the same week.

And they're both known for voicing Captain Hook!

Happy Birthday Tim Curry!

Seriously how can you not love this guy? He simply is smashing!

Ever since he played Dr. Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he has graced the screen whether it'd be live action or voice wise, if it's good or bad. He just has the charisma to make almost anything he's in entertaining and worth the watch.

Voice Wise my favourite role would have to be Nigel Thornberry one of his few massive playing against type roles....mostly because he so SMASHING! By far the best character on The Wild Thornberries. I also really love his performances as Hexxus, Dr. Morocco, Doctor Anton Sevarius, Professor Finbarr Calamitous, Captain Hook, G. Gordon Godfrey, Emperor Palpatine, The Sorcerer, Auntie Whispers, Joseph Chadwick and Doviculus.

I'm glad he's doing well after he had his stroke, it sucks that so many of his ongoing roles got recast and despite their best efforts, they just couldn't capture the magic that is "Curry-ness".

I look forward to whatever future projects he has lined up.

Today is the 69th birthday Tim Curry​! I know him best as Lord Dragunus and Hexxus in Ferngully: The Last Rainforest (I haven't seen it, but I heard the song "Toxic Love").

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.
said at 9:33 PM on Tue Aug 12 2014
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.
said at 9:00 AM on Wed Jun 4 2014
@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".

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

Happy Birthday Mr. Curry!

... 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!

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. :)
