Alan Cumming is so over The Good Wife

Los Angeles - Alan Cumming is "over" The Good Wife.

The popular courtroom drama - in which he plays straight-laced political consultant Eli Gold opposite Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick - is coming to an end after seven seasons later this month, and while fans are devastated at its demise, the 51-year-old actor is relieved because he has grown "bored" of the role.

He said ''I'm over it. I was going to leave last year. I said, 'I'm bored. I do the same thing again and again. There's only so many ways I can raise my eyebrows.'

''I was talking to my team and said that I feel like all I do is come into the room and go, 'Alicia, what the hell is going on?' and literally the next day I got the script and the first line was, 'Alicia, what the hell is going on?' "

However, the Spy Kids star is aware of how much the show has transformed his career.

He said "The show has changed both my perception and the world's perception of me as an actor. Because now I can play men in suits. I've become a grown-up.''
And Alan initially planned to turn down the show until his agent begged him to reconsider.

He recalled to Observer magazine: "They said, 'We really think this could be good for you - they might ask you to do more.'

"I always think that's why you pay your agents and managers all that money, because sometimes they give really good advice."
