Alan Cumming nominated for an Emmy
Alan Cumming has been nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series category for his role in The Good Wife. Alan had been cast as a series regular earlier this year. The award ceremony will take place on August 29 live on ABC. Alan talked to USA Today about his Emmy nomination:
“I didn’t believe it was going to happen. My jet lag is why I didn’t pay more attention. The show is such a nice group of people and other actors have already emailed me. The creators of the show have emailed me and my husband. You get a big outpouring of warm fuzziness all around you,” says Cumming.
Better yet, Cumming starts off the second season of the show as a series regular. And he knows “absolutely nothing” about what’s coming up on Wife. “We start shooting next week and we don’t have the scripts yet. I would probably spill the beans very easily,” he says. [Donna Freydkin]
Henry Ian Cusick cast in ‘Law & Order: SVU’
SVU executive producer Neal Baer, a fan of Lost, tells me he cast Ian because he is “a sharp, smart leader and very charismatic.”
Could Ian finally help Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) get over her long romantic dry spell? (Her last lover was Kurt Moss, played by Bill Pullman, way back in 2008!) “There might be some flirtation,” Baer says. “Erik meets Olivia when he comes to someone’s aid. And then we’ll see how it goes. Olivia is devoted to her job and knows that comes first.” [William Keck]
