We have fallen in with amazing actor Alan Cumming!! Right now he's the only person on our minds After we found the movie Strange Magic and became obsessed with the movie and songs, we looked up the actors. We found out Alan Cumming played the bog king and couldn't get the songs out of our heads. Our mom said she knew Alan Cumming from a show she was watching called "The Good Wife". We looked up clips on YouTube to see how he was and fell completely under his spell. Later we found clips of video blogs he does on YouTube. Filming himself on set of the show. Seeing that we saw what a sweetheart/funny/adorable person he was. So we looked up the show " The Good Wife" and have started watching it. We waited and waited for Alan's character, who our mom had told us that his characters name is Eli Gold. So far we are on the last episode of season 2. And Eli Gold is amazingly awesome! His comebacks are awesome and he's so serious but can be funny at times too. (Character Eli Gold picture at top) So far we've watched a couple of his movies. We've seen Strange magic (of course), Burlesque, Annie, Son of the Mask, Spy Kids, and Tin Man. Tin man we just finished the other day and loved it ^^ Alan's character glitch was funny to watch trip over himself or just repeat things he'd already said.
Recently we got into a play/musical he is in. It's called Cabaret. The play was performed in 1998 on Broadway and last year came back to broadway. Alan cumming reprised his role as the host of the show and sings all his same songs too We've seen his performances/the play on YouTube and bought some of his songs on iTunes. Yes his character is kind of sexual but we still would love to go see his performance and sit in the front where he can see us If you want to see his performance when the play starts here is a recent video someone posted on YouTube of him opening the show with one of our favorite songs in the play: m.youtube.com/watch?v=AAsniX2n…
Sadly the show will end with Alan sometime this month in March. So we may not even get to go see it with it being so far Now on every website we go on, we see an ad for buying tickets to Cabaret and it mocks us every time!
We've gotten one of our friends into it and now she's just as big a fan of Alan as we are she even said: "Why is it all my actor crushes are either gay or twice my age??" (But we love you anyway alan ^^) Now when we all talk about him we all go: lol. And yes we know he is married to his wonderful husband And we all wish them both happiness and laughter with their cute doggies
We can go on and on about Alan but we will stop here
Well guess that's all we have to say and one more thing....
WE LOVE YOU ALAN CUMMMING and hope to someday meet you in person And happy late Birthday from us and our friend
