Cumming takes on two roles in Universal/Amblin’s “Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas” — the Great Kazoo, and the stone age version of Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger. Other upcoming projects include Julie Taymor’s “Titus” which Fox Searchlight just snatched domestic rights to, and Doug McGrath’s “Company Man.” The busy actor is currently onscreen in the indie caper pic “Plunkett and Macleane,” opposite Robert Carlyle and Liv Tyler.
