Tim Curry

Actor Tim Curry is a legend of the stage and screen, recognized for iconic movies like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, It, Muppet Treasure Island, Home Alone 2, Annie, Clue, The Three Musketeers, and FernGully: The Last Rainforest, among so many others.

And he also voiced Slagar the Cruel in the animated adaptation of Mattimeo, the second season of the Nelvana Redwall TV Series, a little over 20 years ago.

The Redwall Wiki recently had the opportunity to speak with Curry, and hoped to hear about his contributions to the show, however, unfortunately, he had no recollection of it.

"I don't know [how I was cast]," Curry said. "I've done a few villains on cartoons and I think that casting directors thought that I was good at it."

"I don't [remember voicing the character]," he added. "But it's a great name, Slagar the Cruel."

We also asked if he had to go to a dark place for his various villainous roles.

"No," he replied. "Sometimes you have to sort of shake it off [afterwards]."

Our interaction was brief, and it was truly a privilege to get to speak to him for any amount of time.

If Slagar is ever re-cast, we certainly hope Curry's excellent work is referenced.

Watch a little bit of our conversation below.
