Entitled "Eavesdropping with Alan Cumming," the second installment of the series will feature an interview with Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry. On his official website, Cumming says, "It's not really a talk show because there are no sofas and we are mostly walking about outside, but there is a lot of talking. I think of it as a conversation rather than an interview." The first "Eavesdropping" special boasted an interview with another Academy Award winner, Gwyneth Paltrow.
