This is pretty disappointing!

Although original Rocky Horror castmembers Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick are signed on to appear in the film's upcoming tribute on Glee, Tim Curry, who played the iconic Dr. Frank-N-Furter, has reportedly turned down the opportunity to appear on the smash series!

His spokesperson reveals:

"He will not be doing [Glee]."

Lame!

We definitely think they should grab Susan Sarandon while she's still interested, then!

She'd probably be HIGHlarious!

What do U think?? Are U disappointed that there will be no Frank-N-Furter??

    Forget his old bloated ass. This shouldn't disappoint any of you. Susan is a MUCH better choice anyway!

    Why not Tim? Totally LAME!!!!!

    good job he not goin for glee like serious come on how old is he nw im sure hes like near dead lol x we like hot ppl on glee altho the whole dr frank-n-furter thing was good like hw many years ago hahaha x still cnt wait to dress up as him on sat nyt nly cus i like the wild and outstanding hair an make up plus the whole wearing of the underwear out in public lol xxx



  4. 4

    Good for him…see, even a guy that wore THAT in a musical has more integrity than to appear on yet another crappy teeny-bopper show. ;) haha!



  5. 5

    yes! i am disappointed. he's awesome.

    I think Glee is using name performers to extend their 15 mins of fame. They are asking people who aren't interested in appearing on their show, then leaking their response. To criticize a performer for NOT wanting to participate in the Glee masturbation fest is wrong. The show is limited in its appeal. The best thing to come out of all this hoopla is the well deserved success of Jane Lynch. The backlash is coming to a TV near you.

    That's not surprising. He hated that role after it got so much cult classic attention.



  8. 8

    Of course he's not doing Glee. That's the one big No No when interviewing Tim Curry. You never mention Rocky Horror. I guess he's ashamed or just would rather be known for his more legit acting roles.



  9. 9

    He's not really in the same shape he was back then. I don't want to see him dressed up like Frank N Furter and ruin that image for me.



  10. 10

    dont watch the show and don't care

    couldn't get through 2 minutes of GLEE

    tim has good management



  13. 13

    Nooooooooo!!! He is the best!!!!



  14. 14

    Re: #Cejers – Tim is MUCH better. He's awesome. He's old and bloated? Have you seen Susan lately? She's not in the best shape either.



  15. 15

    Glee should not be touching Rocky Horror! This makes me sad….. really sad. It's like the equivalent of 90210 doing a clockwork orange episode. HORRIBLE!



  16. 16

    Tim Curry wouldnt be good for it now.
    i still love the man.

    but he did play a crazy psycho killer on the last episode of last season CRIMINAL MINDS and he will be back on the 1st episode of the new season next week…

    HE DID AN AMAZING JOB!!!!



  17. 17

    He's always distanced himself from the role that made him famous. He doesn't want to be always associated with that character. He has only shown up for one or two conventions and he typically doesn't even like to be asked about it. I wouldn't want to see him on "Glee" anyway.



  18. 18

    Tim a WAY ABOVE doing Glee (ugh!).



  19. 19

    Thank you, Tim Curry, for NOT jumping on that lame ass Glee bandwagon.
    At least someone still has respect for themselves in Hollywood.

    Glee sucks.



  20. 20

    He's still great but this character was thirty plus years ago…you think maybe he's moved on?



  21. 21

    i dont mind him not being in the episode.

    Besides its not like he doesnt have work.
    He was in the season finale of CRIMINAL MINDS last april/may
    and he will be appearing again in the 1st episode of season 6 for CRIMINAL MINDS



  22. 22

    why can't people be original and leave the classics alone…they think they can actually do it better? what egos. never watched glee, thought it was for teenagers.



  23. 23

    Re: Sarah Mummy Bootz Alder – Holy shit. Are you 7 years old?



  24. 24

    It's no surprise — TC refuses to ever do anything RH related. He's been trying to put that phase of his career behind him for many years.



  25. 25

    They made that movie more than 30 years ago … I think they need a younger cast to get the true Rocky Horror feel.



  26. 26

    I agree GLEE SUCKS!! It no longer remotely resembles how it start out. With all the old people "guest starring" the cast are just props now. How are any of these people relevant?



  27. 27

    good for him! this Glee shit is ridiculous. karaoke for high schoolers - gee, what a concept.



  28. 28

    I just saw it for the first time and it is an all-time favorite. Tim Curry MADE that show!!!! It can never be right without him! He is a fantastic actor and I have Loved him in every movie he's made solely based on what he does with the character!



  29. 29

    Re: Sarah Mummy Bootz Alder

    Are you on drugs? Completely unreadable. Anyway, Tim has not aged well, and as someone else mentioned, let's remember him in that role as he was when he was young and fit.



  30. 30

    well susan's the best choice as tim curry now looks like that saggy blob from starwars,,



  31. 31

    i'm actually totally ok with this. whereas i love tim curry he's not exactly in corset and fishnet shape anymore lol



  32. 32

    I doubt they wanted him to play Frank again….probably a cameo. I love Tim and if he doesn't want to do the show that's his choice to make. The only thing "lame" around here are some of the asshole comments posted.



  33. 33

    He's too good for Glee.
    Glee = teenage fans.
    IT seems like it's easier to do "tribute" shows instead of doing something original.



  34. 34

    Definitely disappointed. Love Tim Curry!



  35. 35

    Considering he's been trying to distance himself from the role since he made the film, no I am not surprised!



  36. 36

    Glee used to be about a group of high school students in Glee club. Now it's all about the guest stars. I don't like all of these theme episodes they are starting to churn out in full force…Modonna, gaga, britney, and now RH. As much as I love RH, Glee should go back to what it was in 2009.



  37. 37

    integrity



  38. 38

    Glee is so shite anyway. It jumped the shark once the gleeks got to the regional, national, international, universe finals and they all get eaten by cannibal choir from the seventh pluto quadrant.

  40. 40

    What a jerk. Unless he's sick then he should be on it.



  41. 41

    I wish he'd do it. It's not as if he hasn't established himself as a talented and versatile actor at this point, so I don't understand why he'd still be reluctant to briefly revisit Rocky Horror, especially with Bostwick, Meat Loaf, and maybe Sarandon on board. A Glee! cameo would be a nice nod to Rocky fans without having to don the fishnets again.
