Alan Cumming Talks X2 on Conan Show

    January 27, 2003

The Comics Continuum reports Alan Cumming talked quite a bit about his role in X-Men 2 during an appearance on NBC's Late Night Conan O'Brien last Friday. Cumming talked about everything from makeup to merchandising.†

"...Nightcrawler's always been an X-person, but he's not been in the film before," Cumming said. "So they're very, very secretive. I would have all this blue makeup on, and they would make me wear this sort of cloak with a hood. I looked like the Grim Reaper. I could sort of see through it, but I would have to work from my trailer to the set with this on, so in case of paparazzi in the trees, they would just see the Grim Reaper..."

"But then, an official photo shoot that I did, the photo got leaked out," he continued, referring to a photo fans caught a glimpse of right here on Comics2Film, among other places. "But I was squatting and I had a hole in my trousers for the tail to come out. You could see my underpants and then they were going to Photoshop the trousers on top of the underpants. And that photo with the underpants showing was leaked..."

"And there was a big thing on these fan sites, 'What's this thing with Nightcrawler showing his underpants? Is he gay? Is he gay?' And then they're going, 'I always thought he was gay.'

"It was just the weirdest thing. It was bad enough that even though I was wearing this burka for months and now everyone thinks that I'm going to be playing this gay super-hero with his Calvin Kleins sticking out of his costume."
