During production of The Lion King, Cummings recorded over 4 hours of different laughter clips for use with Ed's dialogue. Also, he did some additional singing for Scar during the recording session of "Be Prepared" when his co-star Jeremy Irons damaged his vocal chords after screaming, "YOU WON'T GET A SNIFF WITHOUT ME!!!" Cummings later reprised the role of Scar in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.
