Alec Baldwin ‘Interested’ in Political Office

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Television,

“It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” actor Alec Baldwin told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer, when asked if he would ever get into the political game.

“I do believe that people want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle-class ... would like to seek public office."

But then again, Baldwin seems committed to his current career.

He qualified his statement with this: "To quit [acting] now when it really feels good and doing it feels good would be an enormously difficult thing to do.”

"What's missing is  ... people who have not lost sight of what the middle-class in this country needs.” (Because, clearly, Alex Baldwin knows just exactly what that is.)

The actor's interview with CNN will air Wednesday on Parker Spitzer.

Alec Baldwin Subject of Daughter’s 911 Call

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Television,

Alec Baldwin and Ireland Baldwin + Ireland Baldwin + phones = Do Not Mix.

Early this morning, the 30 Rock star was rushed to the hospital after what is being called a “misunderstanding” by Alex’s rep Matthew Hiltzik. Police and aid arrived at his Central Park West home shortly after receiving a 911 call reportedly made by Baldwin’s 14-year-old daughter.

According to sources, Ireland - who is pictured with her father at the 2009 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards - claimed her father had threatened to take sleeping pills after they had gotten into a horrible fight. At the time of her call, Alec was reportedly “unresponsive.”

Although the 51-year-old was transported to Lenox Hill Hospital, he was quickly released. A friend of Alec’s says this proves the Emmy winner was in no way under the influence of anything.

“If there was a real problem, he wouldn’t have been released within an hour,” Matthew added.

Alec Baldwin Through with Acting?

Alec BaldwinThe Drama King is back. Alec Baldwin has recently revealed that he will be leaving Hollywood when his contract expires in 2012. It seems the Mayans were right - the world really is coming to an end.

“I don’t have any interest in acting anymore,” Baldwin explained. “Moves are part of my past. It’s been 30 years. I’m not young, but I have time to do something else.” Like a stint on , an NBC summer reality series two of his brothers participated in last season.

It gets even weirder from there. “I consider my entire movie career a complete failure,” added. So, he also saw The Marrying Man. “I’ll tell you why. The goal of moviemaking is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that.” Ah, but Beetlejuice will live on in pop culture for ever.

So, the most successful Baldwin brother says he’s through. Anyone care?

Alec Baldwin vs. My Name is Earl

Alec Baldwin

When Hollywood’s teen starlets engage in a feud, it’s usually over some hot young male celeb. When mature female stars squabble, it’s usually about publicity - and which one of them has a book out that talks about the feud. When well-established males in the industry start trading catty comments like a couple of kids…that’s entertainment.

started the brawl of the comments in the New Yorker. In Baldwin’s lengthy profile, the actor launched into a gripe aimed at NBC shows My Name is Earl and Scrubs. Baldwin can currently be seen on NBC show 30 Rock, but after this one has to wonder for how long. When speaking of 30 Rock, Baldwin said, “if the show does succeed, it’ll be something of a [expletive deleted] miracle, because NBC hasn’t done a [expletive deleted] thing to help this show at all.” He further went on to state that NBC has “gone out of their way to wring the last drops out of My Name Is Earl and Scrubs. Those shows are done! They’re cooked! Yet they do a one-hour episode of Earl. You’ve got to be [expletive deleted] kidding me.”
