Nightcrawler on "X-Men 3"
If Alan Cumming
is excited about reprising his role as Nightcrawler in the forthcoming "X-Men 3
," it is not apparent in the Q&A session
promoting his new movie, "Son of Mask
." "I signed for two films, so I'm going to [do it]," he says. On the many hours of makeup required to get him into character, he jokes, "I have this brilliant idea ... I want some kind of fabulous, crazy, terrible thing-some terrible accident happens to Nightcrawler and his face turns white." He says "X-Men 3" may be pushed back because no director has signed on and the script is not finalized. However, the movie will begin production "in the summer" because "they have to release it in May of 2006."
