Presently, Tim Teeman writes for The Daily Beast. But back in 2010, his byline could be found in The London Times, and it was during that time that had a very large impact on actor Alan Cumming‘s life.
As Teeman discovered and recounted this week for The Daily Beast:
Journalists generally shouldn’t be part of the stories they cover. But today, sitting with Alan Cumming in the Union Square vegan restaurant Peacefood Café, it’s unavoidable. I am part of the story, a key one, it turns out; when I reached page 31 of The Good Wife star’s memoir, Not My Father’s Son, the color drained from my face when I discovered why.
“Isn’t it funny? You’re actually integral to this book,” Cumming says, taking off his lovely, fitted checkered coat and scarf and liberating a curtain of dark floppy hair from under a jaunty hat. “If it hadn’t been for us meeting and doing that interview my dad would never have told me — at that time anyway… and maybe not ever.”
