Alan Cumming will play the Emcee of the club in Burlesque. A role similar to his Tony Award role in the revival of Cabaret on Broadway in 1998. Alan has numerous stage, television, film, and author (yes, a published author) credits to his name. Being of the Scottish heritage, he has graced many of stage in his homeland, and the London arenas. He would be considered the most seasoned stage performer of the entire cast, and it is only fitting that his role calls for him to be on stage in a film. It is apparant that adding Alan Cumming to the cast, adds diversity and an edgy element. We look forward to seeing Alan shine once again.
