Cumming Aims to
Be Citizen to Vote for Obama

Barack Obama supporter and actor Alan Cumming is hoping he can become a U.S. citizen in time to register to vote for his preferred candidate.

Barack Obama supporter and openly gay actor Alan Cumming is hoping he can become a U.S. citizen in time to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election, reports New York magazine's Intelligencer blog.

The Scottish actor told reporters he is taking the U.S. citizenship test in October because he thinks Obama needs every vote he can get.

"I've got the questions and the answers," he said about the test at the Google and Vanity Fair party at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. "Now all I've got to do is memorize them. It's just like learning a lot of lines, so I kind of think that as an actor, I'll be better prepared than most."

Cumming was also in attendance for Obama's acceptance speech at Mile High Stadium.

"Tonight was the first night I've ever waved an American flag," he said after the speech. "It was great." (Michelle Garcia, The Advocate)
