Alan Cumming on gay marriage, photography and 'Any Day Now'

Any Day Now Alan Cumming

Still from the film "Any Day Now."

Fans of the actor Alan Cumming can now see him in two very political roles. 

Sunday nights on CBS he appears as the merciless campaign manager Eli Gold in "The Good Wife," and starting tomorrow, you can see him as Rudy Donatello, a gay man fighting for the right to adopt a teenage boy in the film "Any Day Now."

Set in West Hollywood in the 1970, Cumming's character Rudy is a singer who works in a drag night club, who catches the eye of Paul, a lawyer played by Garrett Dillahunt. 

When Rudy's junkie neighbor is carted off to jail, he discovers her teenage son Marco has been left behind with nothing but his favorite toy: a small blonde doll.  

Eventually Rudy and Paul fall in love and the couple tries to adopt Marco, who has Down Syndrome, but the court finds them unfit to be parents because they're gay.

Cumming joins the show to talk about his new role, the gay marriage issue, his passion for photography and much more.
