Rocky Horror Fun with Barry Bostwick
by Betty Jo Tucker

Beginning October 8th and running through Halloween, award-winning actor Barry Bostwick reminisces about The Rocky Horror Picture Show in a Movie Addict Headquarters ON DEMAND tribute to that bizarre cult classic. He also talks with Alan Levy, co-founder and CEO of BlogTalkRadio, concerning the popular midnight shows connected with this outrageous movie. Bostwick, who played the key role of “Brad Majors” (Susan Sarandon’s naïve boyfriend), speaks candidly about his experiences connected with the film -- including weather problems, what it was like working with Sarandon, his favorite scene in the movie, and much more.   

Listeners can hear this lively vintage episode at any time through October 31st by clicking on the BlogTalkRadio link at the end of this article.     

Bostwick has appeared in over 100 films and television productions. He may be best-known as the clueless mayor on Spin City. However, 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 appeared in such TV programs as Cougar Town, Glee, Scrubs, Law & Order Special Victims Unit, Las Vegas, George Washington, and War and Remembrance (for which he earned a Golden Globe)Among Bostwick’s numerous movies are: Movie Movie101 Dalmatians II; Spy Hard; Some Guy Who Kills People; and FDR: American Badass!    

The Rocky Horror Picture Show makes fun of B-movies, science-fiction and horror films from the 1940s through the 1970s. Adapted from the British rock musical written by Richard O’Brien, the movie was directed by Jim Sharman -- and Tim Curry made his dynamic film debut as the flamboyant transvestite, Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Bostwick and Susan Sarandon play an innocent couple who stumble into the Doctor’s Annual Transylvania Convention, with shocking results for everyone involved.

Surprisingly, Rocky Horror bombed when it first opened in 1975, but those entertaining midnight showings soon catapulted the film into cult status. Sarandon admits that of all her movies, this is the one that should be placed in a time capsule. And the film got a big boost when TV’s Glee featured its own version of the musical numbers. That episode became the most popular one of the series.
