Rumor has it, Alan Cumming dropped the stage production after landing a regular role in TV series 'The Good Wife'.

Scottish actor Alan Cumming has dropped out of the upcoming "Spider-Man" Broadway musical to take a role on hit U.S. TV show "The Good Wife", according to a new report. The "GoldenEye" star was set to play the villainous Green Goblin in the "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" production at New York City's Hilton Theater.

But Cumming has pulled out after landing a regular part opposite Julianna Margulies in "The Good Wife", according to PerezHilton.com. The superhero stage show, which features a score by U2 stars The Edge and Bono, has been hit with a string of problems - it was due to begin previews in February but the performances were scrapped.

Bosses maintain they aim to open the musical in 2010 but a new launch date has not yet been set. The show suffered another major blow when lead actress Evan Rachel Wood quit last month, citing scheduling difficulties.

Cumming has previously spoken of his frustration over the delays.
