Star Credits
Alan Cumming Alan Cumming is currently reprising his Tony Award-winning role as the Emcee, in the Roundabout's Broadway revival of John Kander's and Fred Ebb's Cabaret.

Cumming made his professional acting debut as Malcolm in Michael Boyd's production of Macbeth at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in 1985. 28 years later he played nearly all the parts in the National Theatre of Scotland's re-imagining of the Scottish play on Broadway.

After working extensively in the Scottish theatre, he made his West End debut in Conquest of the South Pole, which earned him his first Olivier award nomination. He appeared with the RSC, played Romeo for the RNT Studio and earned further Olivier nominations for La BÍte and Cabaret. His career-defining Hamlet for the English Touring Theatre earned him huge critical acclaim, a TMA Best Actor award and Shakespeare Globe nomination. He won an Olivier for Accidental Death of an Anarchist at the Royal National Theatre.

In 1998 he made his Broadway debut when Cabaret transferred to NYC, winning him the 1998 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. He went on to appear on Broadway in Design for Living and as Mack the Knife in The Threepenny Opera.

Off-Broadway he appeared as the Pope in Jean Genet's Elle (which he also adapted) and as Trigorin in The Seagull opposite Dianne Wiest.

In 2006, he returned to the West End in Martin Sherman's Bent, and in 2007 appeared in the National Theatre of Scotland's The Bacchae, directed by John Tiffany.

On TV he currently appears as Eli Gold in The Good Wife for which he has been nominated for Prime Time Emmy awards. He also appears opposite Lisa Kudrow in Showtime's Web Therapy and is the host of Masterpiece Mystery on PBS.

His film career has seen him work consecutively with Stanley Kubrick and the Spice Girls, and make appearances in the X Men, Spy Kids, Flintstones and Smurfs franchises as well as roles in many independent films such as Sweet Land, Julie Taymor's Titus and The Tempest and most recently Travis Fine's Any Day Now. With Jennifer Jason Leigh he wrote, produced, directed and starred in The Anniversary Party.

Cumming has also published a novel, Tommy's Tale, released an album of songs, I Bought A Blue Car Today, and last year had his first exhibition of photographs, Alan Cumming Snaps! He regularly performs in concert, most recently with Liza Minnelli at New York's Town Hall and over the past few years has sung in seasons at the Sydney Opera House, the Geffen Playhouse, LA and London's Vaudeville Theatre.
