Cummingly Played, Alan Cumming


How this man didn’t get cast as SOMETHING in the Harry Potter flicks is truly beyond me.

    if they would have put Peeves the Poltergeist from the books into the movies, Alan Cumming would have been perfect.

    RIGHT?

    Also, why no Helen Mirren in the movies? She would’ve been awesome. Although I have a hard time seeing her as anyone but McGonagall, and Maggie Smith was perfect for that…

    Peeves! Yes! Perfect! Can we retroactively get on that?

    Nice pants! I have legs just like that, maybe I should get a pair. Would work out better if I weren’t a woman!

    I see a red belt, a suspiciously sheer black shirt, and Alan’s legs and wingtips, but the rest is a mystery- Because it’s cammo, see.

    If we put him in a blond wig, he could be the Young Grindelwald. Dumbledore would certainly crush on him, as do we all.

    He needs only one name…CUMMING. Like SWINTON.

    Rik Mayall (from The Young Ones) was cast as Peeves but his scenes got cut. As for CUMMING, how is it that he can be so well dressed and sexalicious when he is introducing Masterpiece Mystery on Sunday nights and then turn around and leave the house looking like this????

    They wanted him to be in it, but something happened (I don’t remember the details), and he was super snobby about it.

    @Carolina Girl: Yes, love hearing Alan Cumming’s real accent in the Masterpiece Mystery intros.

    God, I love Alan Cumming. You glorious freak of nature.

    so help me contextualize this. He’s visiting the 30 year old busted loudspeaker museum. Must be something about irony in modern cultural statements that I’m missing.

    He’s one of the very few celebrities whose every sartorial whim I endorse simply because they themselves are so fantastic. (The others include Meryl Streep and, of course, SWINTON.)

    I kinda love the sneaky, manipulating, but occasionally vulnerable Eli Gold. Maybe AC dresses in things like that on his own time because he gets tired of wearing beautifully made suit in his day jobs? Because, really? Cammie capris??? REALLY??

    I so wish he would wear this when he hosts “Masterpiece Mystery” on PBS!

    He would have made a smashing Dobby. EVERYONE would have given him clothes!

    Heard snippets of his reading “Macbeth: A Novel” the accent makes me swoon. I’m with Chicklet: because he is who he is, I smile indulgently at his fashion choices. LOVE the haircut.

    it’s actually the WORST MAIL OUTFIT i’ve ever seen in my life :)))) so hilarious. He looks like a crazy emo-scout

    Ok, I love him and I want his boots!

    Ah, Cumming, you magnificent bastard! You, and your love of capri-length pants. Seriously, he wears that type of pant a lot. When he’s not wearing a suit made of some bizarre patterned material that even David Arquette turned down as too freaky. In other words: he’s awesome, and where is his “Fug/fab through the years”? Or his entry in Fug Madness?

    Oh, and would’ve loved him in the Potter movies, much like I would’ve loved Richard E. Grant. Seriously, how did that guy not get a call to play someone? ‘Cos Cumming was asked and turned it down, but I suspect REG would’ve said yes.

    This man is always – and I do mean always – phenomenally sexy to me. I have no idea why. He just is.

    Oh me . . . especially the hairy legs.
