Award-winning actor Barry Bostwick reminisces about The Rocky Horror Picture Show in this annual October tribute to that bizarre cult classic. Bostwick speaks candidly about his experience while making the film -- including weather problems, what it was like working with Susan Sarandon, his favorite scenes in the movie, and much more.
Boasting credits in over 100 films and TV productions, Bostwick may be best-known as the clueless mayor on Spin City, but he's a triple-threat entertainer -- singer, dancer, actor -- who created the role of Danny Zuko in Grease on Broadway and won a Tony for his work in The Robber Bridegroom. He's also a Golden Globe winner for his performance in TV's War and Remembrance. Among Bostwick's many films are: Movie, Movie; 101 Dalmations II; Spy Hard; Some Guy Who Kills People; and FDR: American Badass! His upcoming movies include Slay Bells, a horror flick in which he plays Santa, as well as the comedy Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse.
Although The Rocky Horror Picture Show bombed when it first opened in 1975, entertaining midnight showings soon catapulted the film into cult status. And the movie got a big boost when TV's Glee featured its own version of the outrageous musical numbers.
