CUMBERNAULD’S most famous son has a key role in the giant summer blockbuster movie that everyone is talking about.

Craig Ferguson has the role of grumpy clan chief Lord Macintosh in the Disney Pixar film Brave - which had its premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night.

This is of course the home of the former Cumbernauld High School pupil whose Late Late Show is one of the biggest chat shows on American television.

The film which is aimed at a younger audience is thought to represent the biggest potential boost to the Scottish tourism industry since Braveheart - and stars Kelly Macdonald as Princess Merida.
