Tim Curry Has Always Been One Of The Greatest Actors To Ever Walk The Face Of The Earth

Tim Curry has always been one of the greatest actors to ever walk the face of the earth when it comes to the big screen. That is surely not to change when he makes his way back to the small screen in another guest appearance on the CBS crime hit Criminal Minds.Tune in tonight, September 22, for the season 6 premiere episode of Criminal Minds as the BAU seeks to seek out and track down the "Prince of Darkness.

Tim Curry played Frank N. Furter in the 1975 cult movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Because of that movie's staying power, Curry continues to be best known for the role, in spite of two decades of steady work on stage and screen, including the movies The Hunt For Red October (1990, with Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin) and The Three Musketeers (1993) He has also released pop music recordings, and his distinctive voice work has appeared in dozens of television cartoons and animated feature films.

The name of British actor Tim Curry was known only to the privileged few who'd seen his performance as transvestite mad scientist Dr. Frank N. Furter in the stage and screen versions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. By one of those wondrous quirks of fate, the 1975 Rocky Horror film was resuscitated from its disappointing initial run and became the archetypal "midnight movie," and for nearly two decades its faithful fans have lined up in front of theaters in bizarre costumes and makeup, toting toilet paper and toast (suitable for throwing at the screen).

Unlike these fans, Curry was not content to relive his past triumphs, but moved on to such prestige assignments as the role of Mozart in the Broadway production of Amadeus and the part of William Shakespeare in a TV movie biography.There is so much more to it though as Morgan seeks out to fulfill a promise he made at the end of last season to protect the daughter of Detective Spicer who was murdered in the season finale. And to make matters worse, the team has got to track down the character played by Tim Curry in a city-wide blackout."We wanted to put a lot of weight on Morgan," executive producer Simon Mirren says. "He's personally invested because in the cliff-hanger, he witnessed this awful thing. He's never had to make a promise before. He's a single guy because of the life he leads and he doesn't want to put that kind of pressure on anybody or to have any demands on him. His teammates feel maybe he's crossing a line, but after what he's witnessed, the lines aren't blurry anymore."
