He’s here, he’s queer, he’s in kids’ movies. No, we’re not talking about SpongeBob SquarePants, we’re talking about Alan Cumming. After much success in films like “Spy Kids II” and, who could forget, “The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas,” Cumming is taking on yet another family-friendly role in “Son of the Mask” where he will, fittingly, play Loki the God of Mischief.
A decade after the legendary Mask of Loki was the centerpiece of the Jim Carry film “The Mask,” the magical mask finds its way into the possession of a child in “Son of the Mask.” When cartoonist Tim Avery’s (Jamie Kennedy) new son is born with the Mask’s spectacular powers – to the dismay of the family’s jealous dog – it turns the household upside down and launches a kid versus canine battle for control of the Mask. But unbeknownst to them all, Loki has come looking for his mask and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it back. “Son of the Mask” is directed by Lawrence Guterman (“Cats and Dogs”) and opens Feb. 18.
For more of the fabulous Cumming, his upcoming films include Showtime’s “Reefer Madness,” a tongue-in-cheek musical comedy adaptation of the 1936 classic anti-marijuana propaganda film, “Ant Bully,” an animated feature from Warner Brothers, and the independent films “Neverwas” and “Eighteen.”
