Alan Cumming Interview -- Exclusive

X-Men star Alan Cumming, aka Nightcrawler, took the time to speak with me last week during the “A Sealed Fate?” dinner at Bon Appetit Supper Club during the 2009 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The dinner was sponsored by The Humane Society and hosted by America’s Next Top Model photographer/judge Nigel Barker. The 43-year-old Scottish actor shared about the blogs he reads, a certain foolish blogger and even his upcoming singing career. Check it:

JJ: Tell us about your new movie, Dare. (The film screened at Sundance.)

AC: It’s about these three high school kids, and it’s interesting because its about these kids who are finding themselves, and are becoming sexually active, etc. I really like it because it’s done in a really interesting way, and it can go beyong your expectations because the people you think are gonna be together, are not by the end of the movie. In the film, I’m an actor and I’m really mean, mean to Emmy Rossum.

JJ: What do you do to her?

AC: I just b—- slap her, like really hard.

JJ: You live in New York nowadays, Where do you like to hang-out?

AC: My favorite bar is Eastern Bloc on 5th St. between Ave A and B. I live in the East Village.

Brief Interviews With Christopher Meloni

Law and Order: Special Victims Unit actor Christopher Meloni stopped in to pick up some goodies at the Spongebob Squarepants lounge at Village at the Yard in Park City, Utah during the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

The 47-year-old hunk was kind enough to take a quick pic with me! He signed the Spongebob surfboard for charity and later headed to the Gatorade G-Gym for a little work-out.

Meloni was at Sundance to promote his latest film, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, costarring Julianne Nicholson, actor Dominic Cooper, Malcolm Goodwin, Benjamin Gibbard, Ben Shenkman and John Krasinski (he also directed the flick).

After Sundance, the SVU star spent some father/daughter time at FAO Schwarz toy store in New York City with daughter Sophia Eva Pietrain, 7. Meloni bought Sophia a Floppy Dog by FAO Schwarz.

Ewan McGregor is Spyder Sexy

Ewan McGregor was an unlikely shopper at Fred Segal Fun at Village at the Yard in Park City, Utah during the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

The 37-year-old Scottish stud snagged K-Swiss shoes and Spyder ski jackets. He admitted to not being the active guy everyone makes him out to be, though.

“I did that thing on the motorcycle and people think I’m also a great skier or mountain climber. I’m really just average at most sports”, he said.

Ewan also stopped by the Spongebob Squarepants gifting suite. He signed a surfboard, which will be auctioned off for charity and picked up a few goodies for his kids.

Mr. McGregor and costar Jim Carrey have been in town for their new film, I Love You, Phillip Morris, which premiered on Sunday.

While here, Ewan also picked the Ray-Ban Visionary Award. He said, “I think it’s for people who worked in independent film and encouraged others to do so – so, that would be me.”
