We can't say we blame him, given the amount of
injuries setbacks this production has had!
Alan Cumming, who was previously attached to portray the Green Goblin in the accident-prone musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark before he dropped out due to numerous delays, recently spoke out about the production, and seems to be pretty content with his decision to leave - despite having to continue working with director Julie Taymor on her film adaptation of The Tempest!
"My GOD, that was a lucky escape. Jesus Christ! Talk about dodging a bullet there! …it just fucked me about. It kept getting delayed and delayed, and so I was like, 'OK, time to move on.' Yeah, it was a bit awkward. She wasn't best pleased when I quit. But the thing about Julie is that she's very blinkered about her work, and then things go into the ether. So the next time I saw her for The Tempest, it was like it never happened."
Well that's good!
We would hope that she would have understood how frustrating the wait for Spider-Man was, and kept it professional on the set of the flick, so we're very pleased to hear that!
Not to mention that we're thrilled you weren't the victim of any 'technical difficulties,' bb!
Smart call getting out when you did!
