Cum­ming, Franco join forces

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOOD DESTINATIONS -

LOS AN­GE­LES: The Good Wife tele­vi­sion ac­tor Alan Cum­ming is film­ing along­side 127 Hours star James Franco in Mal­adies.

Cum­ming con­firmed the news to The Hollywood Re­porter at The Tem­pest af­ter-party on Mon­day night.

“ Mal­adies is re­ally fas­ci­nat­ing, di­rected by this guy Carter who is the artist that James has been col­lab­o­rat­ing with,’’ Cum­ming says

“I’m just do­ing a lit­tle part… and just for Christ­mas.’’

Mal­adies, di­rected by Carter, cen­tres on a suc­cess­ful ac­tor who re­tires at a young age due to what is be­lieved to be a mental ill­ness.

Claire Danes also stars.

Cum­ming also talked about his ex­pe­ri­ence play­ing a trans­ves­tite in the minis­eries, The Run­away, that will show in March in Bri­tain.

Cum­ming cur­rently ap­pears in the film Bur­lesque. He next pro­vides the voice of Gutsy Smurf in the live-ac­tion CGI movie, The Smurfs. – Reuters
