Its been 30 years since Clue first hit movie theaters.

Originally treating audiences to an experience where every viewing unveiled a new ending, Clue somehow ended up as a financial disappointment in theaters, but later became a cult classic on VHS.

But whats happened to the eccentric cast of characters? After shedding their need to kill with pipes, ropes and revolvers in the dining room, or billiard room, or maybe in the study, well, where did they go?

Weve done some digging and can answer just that. Heres your cast of Clue 30 years later.

Wadsworth (the butler)

Since Clue, Tim Curry has enjoyed success in everything from feature films to video games.

Curry has lent his golden voice to about every animated TV series you can think of and has played villainous leads in films like Disneys The Three Musketeers, Legend and Muppet Treasure Island. You may have also heard Curry while listening to your favorite audiobook on the way to work, or even on the radio since Curry has dabbled as a solo music artist.

In 2012, Curry suffered a major stroke and has been attending physical therapy since that time. Reports from his agent, Marica Hurwitz, suggest his recovery is going well.
