In Sir Billi, Alan takes on the role of Sir Billi's best friend and companion 'Gordon the Goat'. Faced with an indentity crisis, Gordon is a goat who think's he's a dog! "We were always huge fans of Alan Cumming, being a Scot and such an accomplished actor and innovator. When we came to cast the role of Gordon the Goat there was only ever one name we had in mind - Alan. From the moment we recorded his vocal in New York, I knew then we were absolutely right - he is the only man for the goat and his performance is just classic. It's one of those roles that you simply have to see to truly appreciate the subtle nuances in his comic and 'dry' delivery - very apt for the personality of Gordon the Goat! He does steal the show in a few scenes!" Stated Sascha Hartmann.
He resides in New York City and has a long-running website, alancumming.com, where you can find the latest information on everything he's involved with, from acting projects to charitable organizations.
