    'Rocky Horror' Cast: Where Are They Now?

    Tim Curry
    Played: Frank N. Furter

    Then: The British performer met 'Rocky' creator Richard O'Brien when they both appeared in the British cast of 'Hair.' Curry originated the role of the Dr. Frankenstein-like "sweet transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania" in the West End production of 'Rocky,' then went on to play the part on Broadway and in the movie. With his platform shoes, fishnet stockings, mass amounts of makeup and insatiable sexual appetite, he became an object of lust for kinky boys and girls everywhere.

    Tim Curry
    Played: Frank N. Furter

    Now: Initially, Curry was so freaked out by all the 'Rocky' attention, he attempted to become "chubby and plain" so he could distance himself from the role. As an actor, he's earned three Tony nods for his Broadway work ('Amadeus,' 'My Favorite Year' and 'Spamalot'), leant his distinctive voice to a number of animated projects and is an in-demand character actor on screen. His most memorable turns include playing an orphan-hating villain in 'Annie,' the butler in 'Clue,' the Lord of Darkness in the fantasy 'Legend' and the title character's morbidly obese nemesis Dale "the Whale" on 'Monk.' In the '70s and '80s, Curry also released a number of solo albums. Despite his jam-packed résumé, many folks still think of him only as Frank N. Furter, and recently he's come to appreciate his status as a cult icon.

    Barry Bostwick
    Played: Brad Majors

    Then: The tall, light and handsome leading man was already a Broadway star, earning a Tony nomination for originating the role of Danny Zuko in 'Grease' before 'Rocky' turned him into a cult phenomenon. Bostwick's bespectacled, befuddled, bisexual "hero" takes a lot of abuse from vocal 'Rocky' audiences -- "a-hole" is the appropriate call when he appears on screen. Brad's one solo song, 'Once in a While,' was cut from the film, although it's available on the two-disc DVD set.

    Barry Bostwick
    Played: Brad Majors

    Now: Believe it or not, 'Rocky' isn't Bostwick's most embarrassing film (that distinction goes to 'Megaforce'). Highlights of his busy career include a turn as the first U.S. Prez in the miniseries ''George Washington,' a Golden Globe win for 'War and Remembrance,' his six-year run as NYC's mayor on 'Spin City,' and most recently voice work for the animated series 'Phineas and Ferb,' which also featured the vocal talents of 'Rocky' creator Richard O'Brien. And he had a notable part on the 'Cold Case' ep 'Creatures of the Night,' which referenced 'Rocky.' Bostwick returned to the stage, winning a Tony for 'The Robber Bridegroom.' He's been married twice and has two children with second wife, Sherri Jensen. He's a prostate cancer survivor and played a patient suffering from the disease on 'Scrubs.'

    Susan Sarandon
    Played: Janet Weiss

    Then:
    The native New Yorker was a rising starlet when she landed the ingénue role in 'Rocky.' She got into acting by accident, when she accompanied her then husband, Chris Sarandon, on an audition for the movie Joe.' He was passed over but she won the female lead. In 'Rocky,' she shows off all of her assets: acting, singing and her slim figure. In fact, her skinny gams prompt audience members to yell, "Chicken legs!" while her loose morals earn cries of, "Slut!"

    Susan Sarandon
    Played: Janet Weiss

    Now: Without a doubt, Sarandon's the most successful 'Rocky' alum. After four Oscar noms, the fifth was the charm -- she won Best Actress for her performance as a compassionate nun in 'Dead Man Walking.' The versatile actress has never shied away from controversy. She locked lips with Catherine Deneuve in the vampire flick 'The Hunger,' became a feminist icon as an on-the-run murderer in 'Thelma & Louise' and scored a home run with 'Bull Durham.' The sexy baseball comedy was a big hit and introduced her to life partner Tim Robbins. In addition to their two sons (Sarandon also has a daughter, actress Eva Amurri, from a previous relationship), the pair are famed political activists, and frequently donate their time and money to various liberal causes.

    Richard O'Brien
    'Rocky Horror' Creator/Riff Raff

    Then: Born in England but raised in New Zealand, O'Brien devoured comic books and horror flicks as an adolescent, an obsession that led to him writing 'Rocky.' He moved back to his homeland in the '60s, where he worked as a stuntman, actor and musician. In 1972, an Australian director named Jim Sharman cast him in the London production of 'Jesus Christ Superstar.' The two forged a friendship and a fruitful collaboration. Sharman helped O'Brien develop 'Rocky,' helming it on the West End and Broadway, and directing the film. O'Brien appeared in all three productions as Riff Raff, Frank N. Furter's creepy, Igor-esque butler/frenemy. His then wife, Kimi Wong, was a Transylvanian in the film.

    Richard O'Brien
    'Rocky Horror' Creator/Riff Raff

    Now: O'Brien continued to write musicals, although none ever found 'Rocky'-esque success. In 1981, he and Sharman penned 'Shock Treatment,' an unofficial sequel that has Brad and Janet (played by Cliff De Young and Jessica Harper) trapped on a reality game show. O'Brien's appeared on the British stage (notably as the Child Catcher in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'), in cabaret shows like 'Absolute O'Brien' and as host of the U.K. game show 'The Crystal Maze.' He's been cast as boo-able villains in films including 'Ever After,' 'Dark City,' 'Dungeons & Dragons' and 'Spice World.' In 2004, a statue of him as Riff Raff was erected in New Zealand. He also throws an annual fundraiser, the Richard O'Brien Halloween Party, which benefits the Wallness Children's Charity. He loves most things 'Rocky,' but he's been critical of MTV's planned remake.

    Patricia Quinn
    Played: Magenta

    Then: She began her career as a British Playboy Bunny and although she had a number of stage and BBC credits under her belt, 'Rocky' was her big breakthrough. In addition to playing Magenta, maid to Frank N. Furter and incestuous sister to Riff Raff, Quinn leant her mouth to the opening song, "Science Fiction/Double Feature," during which her comely red lips lip-synched to Richard O'Brien's voice.
