Scottish actor Alan Cumming is thrilled at the prospect of tying up sexy ANGEL star David Boreanaz in new dark comedy SUFFERING MAN'S CHARITY.

The X-Men 2 star will direct and star in the movie about an "uptight music teacher" who falls for a straight novelist and tries to make him return his affections.

Cumming tells gay magazine ATTITUDE, "(My character) gets jealous when he brings a girl home and we have a huge fight and I wind up tying him up with Christmas lights and saying, 'Who's the faggot now?'

"Then I proceed to go kind of crazy - real Mommie Dearest, TENNESSEE WILLIAMS-on-crystal (meth) kind of thing."
