He's an asshole and a terrible father.

Far more than I want to read about that jackass.

He was great in The Usual Suspects.

I'm not sure who the biggest Hollywood a-hole is right now.  Baldwin or Mel Gibson?

Well, at least neither of them are Roman Polanski

I think it's a remark on how good an actor that Alec Baldwin is, that his speech in "Glengarry Glen Ross" was added in just for Baldwin: it was never in the stage play. Other Glen Ross trivia:


"The most iconic thing about this movie is also arguably the most ironic thing. Being that Alec Baldwin's performance is incredibly famous, and what most people immediately think of when they think of this movie. This is ironic because he is only in one scene at the beginning for about 5 minutes."


"Alec Baldwin based the tone and delivery of his famous monologue on George C. Scott's "Wars are won..." speech from Patton (1970)."

I have an M.D. from Harvard, I am board certified in cardio-thoracic medicine and trauma surgery, I have been awarded citations from seven different medical boards in New England, and I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you; when someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trama from postoperative shock, who do you think they're praying to? Now, go ahead and read your Bible, Dennis, and you go to your church, and, with any luck, you might win the annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, he was in operating room number two on November 17, and he doesn't like to be second guessed. You ask me if I have a God complex. Let me tell you something: I am God.

It's a movie reference. Most folks don't need hallucinogens to make them.

He was a good father figure in Beetlejuice.

He's a rude, thoughtless pig. He doesn't have the brains or the decency of a human being.

I don't give a damn that he is 59 years old, or 58 years old, or that he's a grown man, or that his brother is a right wing pain in the ass.


/ liked his work as Father Rod

He should run for office as Jack Donaghy, not Alec Baldwin. He fixed Liz Lemon, now he will fix America.
 
2017-04-19 02:04:10 AM  
Some people who were on the fence and said, 'All I know is I hate Hillary, I hate Hillary,' Hillary hating was a big thing, so when they come rolling into the next election, even the midterms, are they going to come to their senses? We can't take any credit for that, but that will be renewal for me if what we've done results in something.

Apparently Alec Baldwin knows my work.

How far in the toilet would his career have been if Trump had not come along.

He starred in the top grossing movie for two of the past three weeks.

I think he would have been OK, even without Trump.
 
2017-04-19 05:33:54 AM  
More disturbing than Alec Baldwin being a Class A DoucheFartSack...is that people praise him for playing Trump like it was Phil Hartman

No thanks

Chris Ween: He's an asshole and a terrible father.


He is, but I still kinda like the guy.  I'm pretty much the opposite of him politically, but there's still something likable about his candor in interviews.

ArmednHammered: If he didn't have writers, he'd be living under a bridge.


Huh?  He's an actor.  His job is not to write lines.  This is like saying about a teacher, "if he didn't have students, he'd be living under a bridge."

Miles Teller.
 
2017-04-19 08:44:42 AM  
I've enjoyed his work in movies, and his recent work on television has entertained me. That's my only connection with him, so what he does in his personal life is no concern of mine.

One of the best movie quotes ever, and this is why actors are elevated in society. It is not supposed to be about their personal life, etc. It is about their performances and how they entertain us, even if you don't realize it in the moment.

Do you knw why Alec Baldwin is who he is? Because of the fact that he can do the part above and be great, and most people cannot. It really is that simple.

I don't think his Trump is very good.

Yup, and a really good actor.  I don't want him as a friend or relative, but I like to see his work.

He has always been excellent delivering lines like that.  We were watching Mercury Rising the other day, and in one scene Alec starts his ego-stroke speech but is interrupted by a kick to the chest from Bruce Willis.  It's a great scene and would make a great meme.

He couldn't make it on MSNBC if that's any indicator.

Well, since he's turning sixty and worth about that many millions I'm not sure why he'd give a fark. He's long past needing to work.

He was good in "Miami Blues" .

TearsofLys: How far in the toilet would his career have been if Trump Tina Fey had not come along.


FTFY. Fey convinced Baldwin to join 30 Rock, even though he hadn't done a ton of comedy in his 25 year television and film career. He won a couple of Emmys and Golden Globes for it, and became much better known for his comedy than his dramatic work.

So, the answer is, probably zero toilet rating for his career if he had never been asked to put on a wig and act like a conceited, arrogant douche with no regard for anyone but himself. Which came pretty easy for him, since he appears to be a conceited, arrogant douche with no regard for anyone but himself.
