A prominent presence in Hollywood for four decades and counting, Tim Curry might be most recognizable to you as the duplicitous butler from Clue, the voice of the maniacal smog in Fern Gully, or (most likely) the larger-than-life antihero Frank-N-Furter at the head of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. DailyMail reports that the 67-year-old character actor suffered a stroke on Thursday night at his home in the Los Angeles area.

However, Curry’s reps assure DailyMail that the show business mainstay is “doing great” in his recuperation, adding that he “is recovering at this time and in great humor.” Reps continued to denounce any reports that Curry might be suffering from speech debilitation following the episode.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
