“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” star Tim Curry is reportedly recovering in his Hollywood Hills home after suffering a massive stroke.

According to The Daily Mail, the 67-year old actor reportedly had trouble speaking moments before collapsing.

Luckily, Curry, best known for his roles as cult-favorite Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the 1975 musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and Wadsworth in 1985′s ”Clue,” is on the mend.

“Tim is doing great,” his longtime agent Marcia Hurwitz said in a statement. “He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor.”

This is not the actor’s first health scare. A chest infection followed by intense asthma attacks forced him to withdraw from a 2011 theater production of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.”

Curry is set to appear in several films this year, including “Gingerclown” and “Ribbit.”
