Alan Cumming reveals the secret to Eli's hair on 'The Good Wife'

The Good Wife

(Jeff Neumann/CBS)

Going from the set of The Good Wife to the stage of Broadway’s Cabaret requires a quick change for Alan Cumming, whose hair has to go from silver-streaked to black. As he tells EW Radio while promoting his new memoir Not My Father’s Son, The Good Wife producers opted for a wig for three episodes. But then the show’s hair team found a new system: “Eli’s gray streaks are silver blooming Sharpie,” he says.

Listen to him recount his tale of woe to News & Notes hosts Julia Cunningham and Mario Correa below.
