BuzzFoto Blind Item

This British actor known for his diverse range of theater, film and television productions made a cult favorite movie in the 80′s that didn’t do so well in the box office. He revealed recently he once had a sordid, “experimental” affair with a straight actor he worked with on that film. It was a short-lived romantic relationship, but the two remain good friends to this day.

Tim Curry for either Rock Horror Picture Show or Clue.

Oops, my bad Rocky Horror was 1975 but he still fits for Clue.

Dana @ FashionUnder$100 said...

I agree. Tim Curry and... Martin Mull? Michael McKean? Christopher Lloyd?

OOOOHHH, Lee Ving?

Aimée said...

I immediately thought of Brian Blessed? The film being Flash Gordon?

i know who tim curry is but i don't know much about him so i went to his wiki. this is an exact quote from the wiki, "...known for his work in a diverse range of theatre, film and television productions." it's the exact same wording, like someone copy-pasted from his wiki to describe him for the blind.

I think Legend would also satisfy the "cult favorite" bit, it never made back what it spent. And so I pick TOM CRUISE as his love interest.

Rickatoo said...

this gives no opinion whether the cult favorite actor is straight, gay or bi, just that the affair was with a straight actor. it wouldn't surprise me that tim was bi, but i'd be heartbroken if he was gay and i had no chance whatsoever!

Cult 80's movie - Withnail and I. Richard E Grant (born Swaziland, Naturalised Brit) and Paul McCann.

*Miss_P* said...

I thought Richard E Grant too!

LEE VING HELL YEAH

"just how many husbands have you had?"
"mine or other womens?"

Maidstone said...

Oh my - Tim Curry. It must be him. (Wondering when we were going to have any TC gossip on this blog!!)

LOURVE HIM!

feraltart said...

I believe Tim Curry was born in Australia.

Mooshki said...

Richard E. Grant is straight? I would never have guessed that.

RocketQueen said...

Kind of a boring blind, BuzzFoto. So a straight actor had a homo experience? He's not the only one.

Maidstone said...

@feraltart

I'm a huge TC fan. He was born in good ol' England. Grappenhall to be exact.

I'm sure he's been to Australia.

; )

shakey said...

feraltart, he was born in Cheshire. He also did Times Square, but there isn't another male actor of note in that movie. Could have still happened, though but I do like the Tom Cruise guess.

What about Ian McKellan? Is The Keep a cult classic? Scott Glenn, Jürgen Prochnow

Mel said...

Roddy McDowall and Chris Sarandon
movie is Fright Night

maybe?

sunnyside1213 said...

Based on the wiki language, I am going with Tim Curry.

Majik said...

Roddy McDowall has been deceased for many years, now....so he and Chris can't be the blind as they are clearly not "good friends to this day".

First thought, Tim Curry...going with "Clue" (love that film!!), not sure about the 'straight' actor, but there is definite chemistry btwn TC and Michael McKeon.

RJ said...

Who was in that movie "Buckaroo Banzi" in the 80s besides John Lithgow, who totally fits the clues, too, btw?

Monica said...

wait, wait, wait...Clue didn't do so well at the box office?!?! It was a classic in our home, and I had most of the lines memorized by the time I was 10!

Feed Watcher said...

It's Legend.

And Tom Cruise.

There were lots of stories about how production went way over and Tom was stuck in England much longer than planned. I think he and Mimi divorced shortly thereafter.

Patrick Stewart-Dune

jujuree said...

Timothy Dalton in "Flash Gordon." The straight actor being Sam J. Jones.

MommaSaid said...

Gary Oldman and Alfred Molina-Prick Up Your Ears

Danielle said...

My first thought was Tim Curry and Barry Bostwick but as someone else pointed out "Rocky Horror" was in the 70's so I have no clue.
