Russell Crowe Does “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”


Last night’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show” episode of “Glee” was pretty awesome. And I totally dug John Stamos as Eddie. But you know who I like even better in the role? Russell Crowe. Yes, long before he was a gladiator, throwing phones at hotel clerks, Russell starred in a stage version of “Rocky Horror.” Here’s the video proof from 1987. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Our “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Memories


Get ready to do the time warp again, because “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is having a real moment. Next Tuesday’s episode of “Glee” will be an homage to the ’70s rock opera that still plays at midnight showings all around the country. Rachel will of course channel Susan Sarandon as Janet.

With this and a Britney Spears episode to look forward to, it’s already shaping up to be a great season. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
