Alan Cumming is a God

Alan Cumming. Scottish god.

The first time I really remember noticing Alan Cumming was in 1995’s A Circle of Friends, when he played the slimy git trying to get in the sack with Minnie Driver’s Benny.  This was followed the next year by his turn as Mr. Elton in Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow.

But apparently, he is able to do far more than be conniving and loathsome. Much more.  As Eli Gold on the The Good Wife, Cumming easily steals the show and he’s even the host of Masterpiece Classic on PBS.  He was even a mutant, Nightcrawler in X-Men 2.

But did you know he was a talented singer as well? Huffington Post put up this amazing video of Cumming singing a mash up of Adele, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry at a charity event.  Not only does he sound fantastic, but he keeps his Scottish brogue whilest singing.

Cumming as the Emcee in Cabaret

And as a friendly reminder, here are 2 clips from his time on Broadway as the Emcee in the revival of Cabaret.  He brought a pan-sexual, lascivious vibe to the role that defined the show.
