Liza Minnelli, 'Rocco's Dinner Party'At 'Rocco's Dinner Party' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo), Alan Cumming revealed that his next film role would be Salvador Dali. After joking around about his crazy-eyed impression of Dali, it was discovered that fellow guest Liza Minnelli had actually met the artist.

"I went into this restaurant, and I was sitting at the table with Salvador Dali and I saw the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen," Minnelli said. Only, things weren't quite as they seemed.

It turns out the most beautiful woman Liza Minnelli had ever seen was actually a man in drag. And rather than be cool and sophisticated about it when she found out, Minnelli shouted out, "You're kidding!"

'The Good Wife': Alan Cumming Signs 3-Year Deal, First Pics of Sarah Silverman

Alan Cumming, Sarah Silverman, The Good WifeJust because Peter Florrick's election is over on 'The Good Wife' doesn't mean Alan Cumming's Eli Gold is going anywhere.

Cumming has signed a three-year deal with the show, according to Deadline.

Cumming joined 'The Good Wife' as a recurring character during the CBS drama's first season. He's appeared on the second season as a series regular, often sharing scenes with series star Julianna Margulies. The actor was nominated for a guest actor Emmy last year.

The three-year deal is contingent on CBS renewing 'The Good Wife,' which is likely to happen although the show hasn't been given the official greenlight for season 3.

Good News on 'The Good Wife'Peter's lawyers have been working diligently all season to get his charges dropped. On 'The Good Wife' (Tue., 10PM ET on CBS), newbie lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni isn't as flaky as she seems, and Eli Gold has a card up his sleeve as well.

[Spoiler alert.]


"For Mr. Kozko to be murdered, one key thing is required that we overlooked," says Tascioni to the courtroom judge. That key thing involves an ATM machine and the Cayman Islands...?

Alan Cumming to appear on The Good Wife

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 26th 2010 10:00AM
alan_cumming_broadway_worldWhen last seen on TV -- by me -- the super-talented Alan Cumming was singing "That's Life" on the M&M float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Well, in his next TV gig, there's no music on the agenda. Alan Cumming will be guesting on The Good Wife, playing a character by the name of Eli Gold.

Robert Keck interviewed Graham Phillips, who plays Zach Florrick on the show, the teenage son of Chris Noth and Julianna Margulies' characters. Graham revealed that Gold is brought in to rehabilitate his dad's reputation.

Big plans, big stars set for NBC's Thanksgiving Day Parade

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 5th 2009 1:07PM
jane_krakowski_black_dressWell, we know that the singers from Glee were not welcomed into the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade thanks to NBC's territorial attitude. Still, that doesn't mean we won't be watching on Turkey Day. NBC, in fact, will feature one of their own prominently that morning -- 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski will be singing an original song on a float.

It will not be a typical Jenna floppola, either. It's a song being written by the Emmy nominated team of Wesley Whatley and William Schermerhorn. And in case you don't know, Jane's a Tony-winning star who is not only hilarious as Jenna, but a really fine singer/dancer/actress.

That's not all. Alan Cumming is also set to perform in the parade, and it sounds like a doozy, too. He'll sing the Sinatra classic, "That's Life" on the M&M float. What the song, Cumming and Sinatra have to do with M&M candies is anyone's guess.

Tin Man: Part Three

by Kristin Sample, posted Dec 5th 2007 8:05AM
Tin Man Cast(E03) So, I thought that last night's Tin Man was a vast improvement from the first night. Sunday night felt like a Sci-Fi Channel rip-off of the original story -- slightly modernized with scarier special effects (scarier in comparison to the overall-wearing lollipop-holding munchkins).

By contrast, Monday night proved that Tin Man had its own story to tell. This was a story that would use the Wizard of Oz as a jumping off point and rethink the classic.

Tin Man: Part Two

Tin Man(E02) After reading the comments about last night's part one of Tin Man, I'm a bit skeptical about how many people will (or won't for that matter) tune in tonight. Sure, plenty of people found it entertaining but those who hated it seemed to really loathe it.

For myself, I thought it was pretty good but I like the original story enough to find almost any variation of it amusing. I also know not to expect much from a Sci-Fi channel miniseries. So, I fully anticipated that the special effects would be inconsistent and the dialogue would be insipid.

Nevertheless, the actors were good, great even. Alan Cumming is a genius and Neal McDonough is good enough as the embittered ex-Tin Man. I didn't think that Zooey Deschanel was that bad either--so many people complained about her. She does have an abrupt delivery though (which doesn't work well with some of her mediocre lines).

Tin Man: Part One

by Kristin Sample, posted Dec 3rd 2007 8:21AM
Tin Man(E01) Like many people, I am a big fan of The Wizard of Oz. For a little warm fuzzy nostalgia, I'll put on the original movie with Judy Garland. I've read Gregory Maguire's The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (and loved that version too). I even own the soundtrack to Wicked (although I've yet to see the show). And who can forget The Wiz?

I guess it was only a matter of time until the Sci-Fi channel added their version to the ever-evolving list of stories about Dorothy and her journey through Oz. Tin Man aired last night on the Sci-Fi channel from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT and will continue tonight and tomorrow night (same channel, same time).

We began last night with D.G., the Midwestern waitress who speeds to work on her motorcycle, has weird dreams, and believes there's something more to life than waiting tables and windy prairies. D.G., unlike the gentler Dorothy, is a little too tough at times. I don't mind her talking back to everyone but I do mind her going after longcoats with a stick when she sees the men beating up Tin Man's family.

Law & Order's new faces; Bionic producer defends Washington casting - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 18th 2007 1:01AM
Michelle Ryan is The Bionic Woman NBC's got a lot of new shows this fall. The panels have been non-stop and swag-free today -- and not without a bit of controversy.

First up was Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and new Law & Order cast members Alicia Witt (CI), Adam Beach (SVU), and Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order).

Sisto's character on L&O comes with emotional baggage that makes the angst he carried around as Rachel Griffith's brother on Six Feet Under seem like a birthday party, which is interesting since Wolf is no fan of serial drama.

Rick and Steve hit Logo in July

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 14th 2007 4:02PM

rick and steveRick and Steve are a gay couple, and they're animated. I don't mean they're lively, I mean they're the stars of a new animated series for Logo called Rick and Steve. The series, which begins July 10 at 10:00 p.m., features voice work by Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Wilson Cruz and Peter Paige. The music for the series is composed by the same folks who wrote the music for Avenue Q.

The characters in Rick and Steve resemble tiny posable toys, which makes the show look like something created for the Nick Jr. set. Of course, the themes are just a tad more adult than that, or so I gathered by watching the trailer.

TCM celebrates Gay Pride Month

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 29th 2007 8:03AM

oscar wildeJune is Gay Pride Month, and throughout the entire month Turner Classic Movies is showcasing several movies with various depictions and stereotypes of gays and the gay lifestyle. The focus isn't necessarily movies with a gay theme, but movies with gay characters, or movies with gay actors, writers and directors. Some of the movies include The Maltese Falcon, Designing Woman, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

I would also include at least two Hitchcock films in this line-up: Psycho and Strangers on a Train, which allude to certain characters being gay during a time when blatant depictions were much less common.

The films will be shown every Monday and Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. in June, and will be hosted by Robert Osbourne and Richard Barrios, along with guests Tab Hunter, Alan Cumming, Michael Musto, Ron Nyswaner and Charles Busch.

Smells like celebrity spirit

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2006 2:23PM
Alan CummingEvery celebrity has a fragrance nowadays. I mean, you would expect people like Jennifer Lopez and Maria Sharapova to have their own fragrance. But Alan Cumming? Celine Dion? Paris Hilton? Michael Jordan?

Slate dives into the sweet smelling waters of celebrity perfumes and colognes.  I like the description of Cumming (yes, yes, yes, insert you own joke here): "a witty, rather macho blend of bergamot, black pepper, Scotch pine, whiskey, peet, and white truffle that belies the star's epicine image."

I'd like to have a cologne of my own, but it would probably be an unappealing mixture of cheese pizza, Reese's peanut butter cups, and newspaper ink.
