Tim Curry Returns to ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ for FOX Revival


Tim Curry, who gained widespread recognition for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” over 40 years ago, is returning to the horror musical for its revival at FOX.

According to TheWrap, Curry will play the Criminologist Narrator in the revival. Commenting on his “Rocky Horror” return, Curry said, “I am very happy and excited to be a part of this new event.”

Curry first played Dr. Frank-N-Furter in a 1973 London stage production of “The Rocky Horror Show,” which was later adapted into the cult-favorite 1975 film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Since then, Curry played other iconic roles in films like “Clue” and “It,” along with doing voice work on series such as “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Young Justice,” and on both “Batman Beyond” and “Batman: The Animated Series.”

Starring Laverne Cox (Dr. Frank-N-Furter), Victoria Justice (Janet), Ryan McCartan (Brad), Adam Lambert (Eddie), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff) and Staz Nair (Rocky), “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” revival airs this fall on FOX.

    Charles Gray played the narrator in the original movie. He had a slightly high collar and you could never see his neck. The interactive audience usually shouted, “Where’s your F—ing neck?” when he was on the screen, or would sometimes add “like your neck” to the end of his sentences.. (Charles Gray also played Blofeld in a James Bond film.)

    I wonder if Tim Curry will hide his neck as a confirmation of the original version?

    I’m not sure this needs a re-make, but I’m glad that they are bringing Tim Curry into it.

    I can’t wait to see Victoria Justice playing Janet.

    nice even though surprised fox did not let him come back and play frank and furter again. but still rocky horror and tim curry is a combo that works well together..

    I dunno about this. While a part of me is glad to see Curry showing support for it, some of the casting leaves me worried beyond belief. And, to be frank (no pun intended!), did RHPS really need a revival? Let’s just call what it *really* is: yet another “reboot” for the short-attention-span 21 Century culture! Not interested, but wish them well nonetheless..

    I’m glad that Curry is able to be a part of this. After his stroke, I didn’t know to what degree he was able to do, acting wise.

  • NoFace

    Not crazy about Laverne Cox but definitely happy Tim Curry is returning.

  • Tony Clements

    RHPS needing a comeback/revival? How can the original be topped? I may pass..but Tim Curry is a great catch for it. I’ll miss Little Neil as Columbia, and Patricia Quinn as Magenta though.

    He’s an elderly man now and I don’t think he could play Frank if he wanted to. I don’t think this was a question a fox letting him come back at all

    This may now be worth watching.
