Few actors have established the sort of iconography enjoyed by Tim Curry.

Over the years Tim Curry has become one of the most iconic actors ever to grace the silver screen.

Many of his characters have become so well known and loved by fans that the idea of recasting has become an incredibly difficult proposition. With remakes of It, Clue, and Rocky Horror currently on the horizon, many fans have been left wondering whether or not new actors can even hope to live up to the high standard set by Tim Curry years ago. He set the bar that high.
Those of you that have kept up with Tim Curry's career also know that he recently had to slow down due to his physical health. Curry suffered a stroke a few years ago, and he subsequently took a step back from acting to focus on his recovery. Overall he seems to have made significant strides recently, and he even has come out as joining the upcoming Rocky Horror reboot as the Narrator of the film. Even if he's not returning to his original role as Frank N. Furter (he bequeathed the part to Laverne Cox) it's nice to know that the original influence on the iconic story will be felt. That goes a long way towards instilling confidence in the future of the upcoming project.
