then and now: CAST of CLUE (1985)

In this entry of "Then and Now," we're taking a look at the cast of the 1985 movie Clue, which included a handful of brilliant comic actors playing the roles of the suspects in the classic murder mystery board game of the same name. If you haven't seen it, you don't know what truly hilarious cinema is. If anything, you've at least had to have heard of the "flames on the side of my face" rant. Take a look at their early and later work:

Tim Curry as Wadsworth the Butler

In the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show
and in the 2009 TV miniseries Cranford

Lesley Ann Warren as Miss Scarlet

In the 1965 TV production of Cinderella
and in a 2009 episode of the TV series In Plain Sight

Eileen Brennan as Mrs. Peacock

In a 1972 episode of the TV series All in the Family
and in the 2007 short film Peanut Butter

Madeline Kahn as Mrs. White

In the 1968 short film The Dove
and in 1999 in the TV series Cosby

Martin Mull as Col. Mustard

In a 1977 episode of the TV series Fernwood 2 Night
and in a 2009 episode of the TV series Eastwick

Christopher Lloyd as Prof. Plum

In the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
and in the 2009 movie Santa Buddies

Michael McKean as Mr. Green

In 1976 in the TV series Laverne & Shirley
and in the 2009 film Whatever Works

I love this idea-I'm hoping for Bonnie and Clyde, which has a cast that is amazingly all still with us next. :)
