'Alan Cumming Snaps!': The 'Good Wife' actor's Photography Debut (SLIDESHOW) 
When he's not destroying political enemies as Eli Gold on the CBS drama The Good Wife, Alan Cumming practices a different kind of aim-and-shoot. From now until Nov. 4, the Scottish-born actor's first ever photography exhibition drops down at the Paul Smith gallery in Los Angeles. The concerns of Alan Cumming Snaps! aren't exotic so much as exotically familiar: the OBE presents cherries, knees, and -- because how can you not -- some truly charming selfies.

Scroll through our favorites from the show below, all of which have been filtered through an "app that makes them square and saturates the colors, like a Polaroid," according to Cumming's artist's statement. Three guesses on what that could be!

Alan Cumming on shooting videos of his big nights out
From New York Post:
Alan Cumming is a video vigilante, sometimes turning the camera on himself. 
“I see things on the street and video them just in case,” he told us at an event for Peter Gabriel’s Witness, a human rights organization that teaches activists how to take footage, at Roseland on Thursday. 
The Good Wife star Cumming said, “Sometimes on my phone in the morning after a big night out I look at the things I have taken like, ‘Oh.’ There is evidence like that of some disastrous occurrence.”
