    Shame he didn't bring any of that fun, quirky, off-the-wall quality to Nightcrawler! He sounded more like Nightcrawler in that interview than in the movie when he was mainly serious...

    I'm hoping we see more of Nightcrawler in an X-movie. Alan looks very 'elfin' and 'sprite-like' in reality, i can see why those chose him for the part. It'd be good if they got him back.. but with all the make-up process, it wouldn't matter if they didn't...

    ^ Alan liked to have a good old ***** about the makeup process. He was a bit of a diva in that respect.

    I'm always in two minds about him. Sometimes he seems like a really cool guy, and then others he appears to be a bit of an idiot.

    He came across well in that interview I thought. :up:
     
  6. You know, I never really understood why he complained about the make-up process. Did he really expect not to be covered in make-up? or that it wouldn't take a long time?

    But his performance as Nightcrawler really brought him to life and that's how I've always envisioned Kurt too. Hopefully(if he gets over the make-up process) we'll see him in a future X-Men movie.

    He definitely comes across as a cool intelligent guy, not that I would hang out with him or anything.

    Sure you wouldn't. ;) Not even one dip in the hot tub?
     
  8. I'd kick him out and invite Rebecca Romijn, Halle Berry, and Kelly Hu into the hot tub. ;):up:

    I think LastSunrise1981 wants to make it perfectly clear to everyone that he's very much a straight guy who has never doubted his sexuality.

    Glad we cleared that up.

    As for the bathtub, I'd kick Alan out and invite James and Hugh, but that's just me.
     
  10. Ah let's face it, they wouldn't hang out with us. We'd annoy them with our fanboy debates and our obsession with X-Men. :)

    And yes, you are correct about what I was pointing out. :)

    Hmm... I'd kick all 3 out...

    And in their place, I would put Famke, Rebecca, Halle, and crossover Jessica Alba from F4. :D

    Killer Charm: Alan Cumming

    By Boris Kachka

    Hollywood has pegged the Scottish actor Alan Cumming as a stock villain and a mutant for hire, but New Yorkers know him as an impish man-about-town and a Broadway darling whose last big role, as the emcee in Cabaret, brought the show to new levels of tawdriness. He returns to Studio 54 this week as Mac the Knife, the slinky inveterate criminal at the center of The Threepenny Opera. Cumming talked to Boris Kachka about his new role and life after 40 (which looks a lot like life before 40).

    You’re known for revealing your backside in almost all the theatrical productions you’ve been in. I admit I was disappointed not to see it this time.
    Someone once wrote, “Is it some sort of contractual thing that he has to show his bum in everything he does?” But no, I mean, there wasn’t really any place for it. And also those trousers are so tight, you’ve got a pretty good idea of everything downstairs anyway.


    What was Mac’s appeal for you, then?
    It’s one of the great modern European theater roles—and also, you’ve got to make people want to **** you even though you’re a horrible rapist and murderer. So it’s got all those challenges.


    Yet you’re playing another dark character from the Weimar era. How is it different?
    Cabaret was more cheeky. The phrase I think of when I do Cabaret is, “You know you want to.” This is more like, “You want to, or I’ll ****ing beat your head in.”


    You said that when you turned 40, you might slow down your partying a bit. You’re 41 now.
    I hope I’m still going to clubs when I’m 65.


    Where do you go?
    I’ve been loving the lesbian nights at Starlight. Lesbians are so gorgeous nowadays. Maybe it’s just me, maybe I’ve just noticed them. And the Russian Baths. I was in there steaming my voice, because I was a bit hoarse, and these old men were singing in Yiddish, and they were like, “Join in, sing the harmonies!” So there I am humming along.


    You also said that after 40, you’d stop doing so many movies you didn’t like.
    Oh dear, did I say that? Gosh. Well, I’ve not really done anything I’ve not really liked for a while. I probably will have to because I’ll be bankrupt. So I’m on the lookout for things I actively don’t like.


    Weren’t you supposed to be in X-Men 3?
    They had an option on me, and they didn’t pick up my option. I was delighted, frankly. I didn’t enjoy [X-Men 2] at all. It was horrible.


    And what’s been the worst thing about Threepenny?
    The worst thing that happened is last night Nellie McKay stood in my doorway with a Hillary Clinton mask on singing “Moon River” on a ukulele, whilst me and a couple of people, including Jessica Lange and Mikhail Baryshnikov, looked on amazed. We wondered when she was going to stop, and she didn’t for quite some time.

    ^ I remember those quotes. Why he hated X2 is beyond me. It wasn't exactly a focused story but it was a blast to watch and his character was great. Obviously we woln't be seeing him as Nightcrawler again talking down about X2. However I thought he did enjoy the movie but it was a horrible experience with Bryan Singer. Maybe Bryan wouldn't sleep with him and he had a hissy fit.

    Now, that sounds fantastic!

    As for Alan, not being Nightcrawler. It really feels like a detach since we had all those ties, but then again we're dealing with the X franchise, where characters come and go as they like. Plus we do have his character appearing in the game for all that's worth.

    WHAT? he hated X Men 2???

    that bastard! yeah i wouldn't care if Alan Cumming came back as Nightcrawler. they need someone else who's more i don't know....maybe....MASCULINE.

    he did a good job but WTF??? he didn't like X2?

    must be the bi thing or he's intoxicated with his own fragrance labeled after him? Cumming?? doesn't get anymore gay than that
