The following year, he landed another popular role, Booger, in the film Revenge of the Nerds.

In the book, he discussed Tom Cruise and wrote about him in an excerpt shared with The Hollywood Reporter; "I would ask him at the end of the day if he would like to join us at the bar for a drink.

Where is Curtis Armstrong Today?

As of 2022, Armstrong completed his role on American Dad and holds the credit of character Bill Gibsby in a post-production movie Blind Psychosis

In addition to that, in February 2022, his interview with the Charlotte Observer was published where he talked about his previous character and as well as the evolvement of actors in the area of the internet. 

He specifically talked about the change in fandom and actor-fans relationships while working for the series Supernatural. He said, "The biggest one is 'Supernatural,' which was a show I wasn’t that familiar with until I started playing Metatron. I did 15 episodes over a period of a couple of years and became aware of a rumbling of that fandom in the distance. Eventually I did a couple of 'Supernatural' cons and met that family as they’re known."

He further added on his experience and the reactions of the fans resulting from the influence of the lead character's performance. "It was like a light going on. It was a little more focused than any other fandom I’ve seen. This was unique to me. This was an organized, empathetic group of people. Their love for those characters — not mine, but the others on 'Supernatural' — was a real education to me. They’re a lovely warm passionate group of fans, kind of like the Deadheads."
