Cumming, Franco join forces
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
