Alan Cumming was asked to voice an episode of Dora The Explorer

HOLLYWOOD star Alan Cumming has landed a role on children’s cartoon Dora The Explorer.

The Scottish star, originally from Perthshire, announced the cameo role on his Twitter page yesterday and told fans that he even sang a song on the popular cartoon.

The Good Wife actor, 46, then boasted about the impressive range of food available in the studio and Tweeted a picture of his fruit plate.

He tweeted: “I did it! Voiced a Dora the Explorer episode, even sang a song! Nice array of fruits in studio. #loveshowbiztoday.”

One day earlier, the star let it slip that he would be voicing an episode of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon, which features an adventurous eight-year-old girl called Dora.

Educational

The cartoon, which has been on the go since 2000, educates children about other nationalities as Dora often teaches viewers Spanish words and phrases.

In each episode, Dora and her best friend Boots – who is a monkey- go in search for something or try to help someone along the way. 

Cumming also hinted that he would be doing another cameo for the American cartoon Arthur, which has featured a string of well-known celebrity voice-overs in the past.

He tweeted: “Guess what? Tomorrow I am doing Dora the Explorer and next month Arthur! #bucketlistdone.”

The Scots actors’ debut on Dora the Explorer is expected to air later this year.

Cumming began his career on the Scottish stage but has been known more recently for his role as Eli Gold, a blunt campaign manager for a state attorney on the TV series, The Good Wife.

The 46-year-old also starred as Nightcrawler in X-Men 2 and as Russian computer genius Boris Grishenko in Golden Eye
