In addition to his many dramatic credits, Baldwin has proven to be an adept and perennial host of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" (with 16 hosting appearances to his credit) and was lauded as the "funniest person on TV" in 2006 by the Chicago Sun-Times. Baldwin's production company, El Dorado Pictures, has co-produced the Emmy-nominated miniseries "Nuremberg, The Confession" for Showtime and the feature film "State and Main."

Among his many stage credits, Baldwin won acclaim and a Tony nomination for his work opposite Jessica Lange in "A Streetcar Named Desire," which also garnered him an Emmy nomination for the television adaptation.
