But now, finally, he’s revealed the secret of how he manages to so accurately pull off his impression – most notably, the so-called ‘Trump face’, which Baldwin described as “trying to suck the chrome off the fender of a car” when he dropped by ‘The Late Show’ this week.

Baldwin has been lampooning the controversial president on 'Saturday Night Live' since October 2016 - but he thinks he might retire it soon.
Alec Baldwin’s impersonations of Donald Trump on ‘SNL’ have hit the nail so precisely on the head that the new president himself has even criticised them on numerous occasions. However, the actor has hinted that he won’t be doing them for that much longer.
Baldwin’s impressions, along with those of Melissa McCarthy ripping it out of press secretary Sean Spicer, have coincided with a ratings boost for ‘Saturday Night Live’.
However, the 58 year old Hollywood star intimated to Extra in an interview on Monday (March 6th) that he’s strongly considering packing in his lampoons of the rage-tweeter-in-chief soon.

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Donald Trump requests 'equal time' from SNL
The president-elect confessed that he saw 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend, and blasted it for the 'biased' skits. He then had the nerve to request 'equal time', which means that broadcasters must present political candidates equal opportunities if they so request it. A fair request were the election not over.

Alec Baldwin's alleged stalker has been jailed for six months by a New York judge. Genevieve Sabourin claims to have had a sexual encounter with Baldwin in 2010 and began harassing him via emails and voice calls two years later.
A woman accused of stalking American actor Alec Baldwin was found guilty this morning (14th November) by a judge in New York. Genevieve Sabourin, a Canadian actress, has been sentenced to six months jail time. The 41-year-old actress has already been given one month in jail for interrupting Baldwin during his testimony.
Baldwin gave emotional testimony on Tuesday (12 November).
The 30 Rock actor met Sabourin in 2000, according to reports in The LA Times, whilst working on a film together. The pair met up again in 2010 when they had dinner together: Sabourin claims the two had a sexual encounter at a hotel whilst Baldwin maintains the meeting was about her career and the two were never lovers.

Genevieve Sabourin is currently being held in a prison cell for contempt of court during the actor's opening statement
Alec Baldwin broke down in tears when he took to the stand earlier this week to testify against Genevieve Sabourin, the woman he is alleging had stalked him and harassed both him and his wife for years. On Wednesday, 13 November, it was Genevieve's time to take to the stand at the Manhattan Criminal Court and give her side of the story, one that was significantly different to the account Alec had given earlier.
The aspiring French-Canadian actress claims that her affair with Alec began in February 2010, when the actor escorted her on a romantic, day-long date around New York City, which was followed by months of letter exchanges that suggested Baldwin had genuine feelings for Sabourin. The 41-year-old defendant went on to describe a month-long telephone correspondance between the two, one that was heavy with flirting, which eventually led to the pair meeting up in the Big Apple, the New York Times reports.
“He’s a professional charmer, he’s the best in the world,” she told the court, reminiscing the supposed meet-up they had. She claimed that their weekend together began with a drive through Central Park, after which Baldwin took her to see a popular Broadway play before heading to the glitzy Elio’s Restaurant, where they shared an intimate meal. Sabourin then claimed that the night ended when he took her to the Hotel Lowell, where the two had sexual intercourse, she claims. She testified, “It was a beautiful, romantic evening.”

The Canadian actress claims to be Baldwin's ex-girlfriend.
Alec Baldwin has been in court lately defending himself from the claims of a Canadian woman accused of stalking the actor. Genevieve Sabourin, 41, alleges that she and Baldwin had a relationship but their romance fell apart, according to CNN. She is charged with stalking Baldwin and his wife Hilaria which consisted of leaving up to 30 voicemail messages per night, crashing events, turning up at their apartment and sending a string of tweets and emails.
Alec & Hilaria Baldwin Claim That Sabourin Has Stalked Them.
Sabourin denies that she is guilty of stalking and rather sought to resolve her feelings towards Alec. However, she repeatedly ignored a judge's warning in court that she was not to interrupt a witness's testimony when a tearful Baldwin denied any romance. Sabourin, an aspiring actress, shouted "you're lying!"

Alec Baldwin erupted in tears as he sat in the witness stand on Tuesday morning (November 12, 2013). The actor broke down following a heated exchange of words between himself and the defendant, Genevieve Sabourin, over the nature of their relationship, TMZ reports.
Sabourin is hearing charges of stalking and harassment, with Baldwin claiming that he and his wife had undergone years of hardship as a result of her incessant obsession with the actor. He claims that she inundated him with tweets and emails and even claims that she has shown up at his home and harassed his wife in the past.
On the contrary, Sabourin says that she has history with Baldwin, claiming to have met the actor in 2002, before having dinner with him in 2010. She also claims to have slept with the actor at some point in the supposed period of knowing each other, something that Alec vehemently denies.

Tuesday's trial got out of hand when Baldwin took the stand.
Today Alec Baldwin took the stand to testify against an alleged stalker. Unfortunately for the controversial former 30 Rock actor, even the court visit didn’t go as smoothly as it should have. During his testimony, Baldwin was heckled by the very woman he was speaking against – Gabrielle Sabourin, a French Canadian actress, whom Baldwin admitted to having spoken several times prior to the events of the case.

Anyone interested in how movies get made will love this feisty behind-the-scenes documentary, which uses sharp comedy to explore the messy business side of cinema. Both smart and very funny, it may not tell us much that we don't know (mainly that it's almost impossible to get a film financed unless it's a blockbuster with bankable stars), but it reveals things in ways that make us wonder about the future of the movies.
The film follows actor Alec Baldwin and director James Toback as they head to the Cannes Film Festival to secure funding for their planned Iraq-set riff on Last Tango in Paris. They meet with a variety of experts who tell them that their hoped-for budget is three times too high for a movie starring Baldwin and Neve Campbell. So they talk to Chastain, Bejo and Kruger about taking over the lead role. They also consult with a range of prominent filmmakers including Scorsese, Coppola, Polanski and the Last Tango maestro himself, Bertolucci. But the more time they spend with the people who control the money, the more they wonder if their movie will ever get made.
It's fairly clear from the start that Last Tango in Tikrit is a joke project, but everyone takes it seriously. And as they talk to prospective investors, Baldwin and Toback consider adjusting the film to get more cash by, for example, shooting scenes in Russia or China. It's fascinating to hear these billionaires offer advice on how to get their movie made. And hilariously, no one worries about Baldwin's insistence that the story requires explicit sexual scenes.

The first-time host was given a few pointers by the veterans of the comedy sketch show.
Ed Norton isn't exactly known for his comedic chops, so when he appeared as host on this week's Saturday Night Live - the first time he has hosted the long-running show - he was happy to take all the help he could get. It was a good think that show veteran Alec Baldwin and recent host Miley Cyrus were on hand to dish out some advice for him as he burst his SNL cherry.
Norton made his debut on the show
It was a great lead in to the show - one that could have been better if it wasn't for Cyrus' poorly received butting-in and tongue joke - as the three joked around, shared tips (Alec is a 15-time presenter on the show) and plugged whatever new ventures they have on the horizon (for Baldwin, it was his new MSNBC show, whilst Miley talked about her 2014 tour). And for such an amusing lead, the show even managed to keep up the funny until the end, a sad rarity for recent shows.

How did Baldwin fare as a talk show host?
Up Late With Alec Baldwin debuted on Friday night on MSNBC and gave viewers a chance to see actor Alec Baldwin in a talkshow role. The differentiate from the scores of other late night shows on offer, Up Late promised viewers something different for a cable news programme in that it would comprise of an hour long talk with a single guest that would be "more conversation than interview, more personal than promotional."
Alec Baldwin Begins To Host His Own Show.
The first show had a political edge, owing to Baldwin's first guest being New York mayoral candidate, Democrat Bill de Blasio. However, rather than fizzling current affairs debate and a closer look at a man who wants to run NYC, the hour was branded by New York Daily News as "somewhat sleepy."

It was a solid debut, but it was always going to be, right?
Alec Baldwin is a man of many talents; he’s a comedian, a writer, a podcaster and a presenter. So it’s no surprise that his debut on MSNBC’s new ‘Up Late’ program went by without a hitch with Baldwin anchoring things. His first guest: New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio.
In-between throwing questions on job creation, income inequality and how de Blasio has dealt with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Balwdin’s cadence was professional with a hint of the jovial, as his cheeky demeanor always suggests. Discussion soon turned to de Blasio's views on legalizing marijuana and New York's Stop-and-Frisk police policies.
And buying into the idea of a ‘chat’ show, Baldwin did just that; he chatted, offering up anecdotes and stories of his own. “I remember during my lifetime I would meet women, and it was almost like God would say to me, ‘Now, this woman here is not the one you are going to end up with, but she is going to be a lot like this woman; look at this woman, study this woman,’ ” he said. “And when my wife showed up, he was like, ‘You recognize her now?’”

'Up Late with Alec Baldwin' premiered on MSNBC on Friday (Oct 11th) at 10 pm ET.
Alec Baldwin kicked-off his first show with a much more serious demeanour than most people are probably used to, with his first guest being democratic NYC mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio.
The 55 year-old has established himself as a top comedic actor on the hit comedy show '30 Rock', but in this 45 minute interview the host showed his diverse knowledge of current political issues associated with New York City.

It looks like the joys of fatherhood soon wore off Alec Baldwin, who was seen assaulting a paparazzo in NYC this week
Alec Baldwin may have just become a Dad, but that doesn't mean he's cooled his temper much since the birth of his new daughter. The actor was spotted in New York City by a paparazzo who immediately began snapping Alec and asking him about his new child, but the snapper apparently got too close for comfort and ended up facing the wrath of Baldwin.
Baldwin has been involved in paparazzi bust-ups in the past
As first reported by TMZ, Baldwin and the photographer grappled in broad daylight on the streets of NYC. According to Baldwin's people, it was the photographer who was the aggressor in the situation, however the photographer told TMZ (he isn't a TMZ employee) that he was doing nothing to provoke Baldwin other than doing his job and Alec was the one who turned things nasty. He told the site, "All I can say is I was doing my job asking him normal questions and he flipped. That's all."

Alec Baldwin has escaped prosecution after attacking a paparazzo in New York. Baldwin is not the only celebrity to lose his temper with photographers. According to sources: Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Kanye West are all guilty of reacting under paparazzi pressure.
Parenthood has certainly not mellowed Alec Baldwin. The 55-year-old actor was involved in a scrap with a paparazzo in New York this morning (27th August). It seems the 30 Rock star lost his temper - to make a change- with a photographer whilst he was out in New York with his wife, Hilaria.
Hilaria, the bump now known as Carmen and Alex Baldwin at a charity event in Bridgehampton, New York.
Hilaria gave birth to their daughter Carmen on 23rd August and, it appears, wanted to avoid the paparazzi by hiding in a tea shop. Baldwin has been photographed by TMZ guarding the entrance of the store and glowering at a small group of photographers. Police were present at the scene and stepped in when Baldwin attacked the photographer. It seems the photographer did retaliate so neither party will be pressing charges, according to a NYPD spokesperson.

Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin are parents! Hilaria gave birth to the couple's first child together on Friday (23 August) after checking into New York City's Mount Sinai hospital earlier that day. Carmen Gabriela Baldwin was born to two overjoyed parents, with Hilaria later confirming the birth herself with a tweet that was followed by another jovial tweet (and accompanying Tumblr post) from Alec's first daughter, Ireland.
Hilaria has ballooned since the announcement of her pregnancy earlier this year
Alec was spotted arriving at the hospital on Friday evening, a few hours after Hilaria was taken to the maternity unit, carrying a number of heavy bags up to his awaiting wife. It is believed that when Alec arrived his wife hadn't yet given birth, but she eventually welcomed little Carmen before the day was over. Her birth came a few days earlier than initially expected, and given the size of the bump that Hilaria has been rocking in recent weeks, it came as little surprise that their daughter would be arriving soon than expected.

Following his 'homophobic outburst' on Twitter, gay rights campaigners are demanding that Capital One drop the actor as the face of their corporation
Alec Baldwin is still facing the backlash that began when he defended his wife against allegations that she was Tweeting during actor James Gandolfini's funeral. Now LGBT rights campaigners are urging banking company Capital One to drop Baldwin as a spokesperson for their corporation in a show of solidarity with the gay rights movement.
Alec Baldwin (pictured at Gandolfini's funeral) has apologise for his rant
“We urge all Americans to ask themselves, ‘What’s in your wallet?’ We hope they will reject Alec Baldwin’s homophobia by cutting up those Capital One cards in their wallets,” Jimmy LaSalvia, a gay conservative strategist and co-founder of GOProud, told Breitbart.com. And he isn't the only one calling for Baldwin to be dropped either, as a number of prominent LGBT campaigners are calling for a similar punishment to be handed to the actor. According to fellow GOProud member, John Hawkins; “It’s still a free country and Alec Baldwin can do as much gay bashing as he likes on Twitter, but it’s hard to understand why Capital One would choose to publicly condone his homophobia by keeping Baldwin on as its spokesman."

A British tabloid claimed that Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria Baldwin tweeted during the funeral of Soprano's star James Gandolfini. When Alec Baldwin heard about the article in The Daily Mail he launched into an irate and homophobic tirade on Twitter.
Baldwin's pregnant wife, Hilaria, did tweet about the funeral and addressed one of her posts to James Gandolfini or as she referred to him 'Jimmy'. As The Mail pointed out this post was between two considerably chirpier ones including discussing recipes and asking advice from her followers about anniversary presents.
Unfortunately, as the time is recorded on Twitter, The Mail does have a point, evidently upon arriving at the funeral or even during the course of it Hilaria was on her phone.

James Gandolfini was best known for his performances as Tony Soprano, though his career on stage should not be forgotten.
Broadway will dim its lights on Wednesday (June 26, 2013) in tribute to actor James Gandolfini, the Tony award nominee who died in Italy last week aged 51. The Broadway League announced that theatre marquees will go dark for one minute at 8pm, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Gandolfini was best known for playing New Jersey mobster Tony Soprano on HBO's The Sopranos - considered the greatest television drama of all time - though he also excelled on the stage. In 2009, the actor earned a best actor Tony Award nod for his role in Yasmina Reza's comedy God of Carnage, which he produced two years later at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre. Previously, Gandolfini had appeared in A Streetcar Named Desire (1992) opposite Jessica Lange and a youthful Alec Baldwin.
"Whether on screen or on a Broadway stage, [Gandolfini] made every role believable and seemingly effortless," Charlotte St. Martin, the Broadway League's executive director, said in a statement.

Does 'Orphans' manage to get by without Shia LaBeouf?
The Broadway production of Lyle Kessler's 'Orphans' starring Alec Baldwin, opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Thursday evening (April 18, 2013), after a chaotic build-up that saw lead star Shia LaBeouf walk out of rehearsals. The play follows two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. The eldest (originally played by Shia, now by Ben Foster) supports his younger sibling (Tom Sturridge) by stealing before kidnapping a rich old man (Baldwin) who becomes the father figure the boys never had.

LaBeouf departed after a highly publicized disagreement with Alec Baldwin, with private emails making their way online. "I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don't think he's in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn't," Baldwin told Vulture.com afterwards. However, the Transformers actor showed up on the front row for the previews at the end of March and led a resounding standing ovation when it finished.

Alec Baldwin could be new late night host for NBC, report suggests
Alec Baldwin could be in the running to become a new star for NBC’s late night programming, according to a report from the New York Times. Baldwin’s already got a decent relationship with the network, following his successful stint in the popular comedy series ’30 Rock,’ which landed him with two Best Actor in a Comedy Emmy Awards. Additionally, he’s got form when it comes to interviewing, with his WNYC radio podcast, Here’s The Thing, in which he interviewed the likes of David Letterman, Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig, Chris Rock, Lena Dunham.
The late night line-up for NBC looks be in the middle of a massive refurb right now. Last week, the announcement came that Jimmy Fallon would be leaving his Late Night show and taking over from Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. Speculation over who will replace Fallon is rife and NYT suggest that “the mutual interest between Mr. Baldwin and NBC about opening a late-night spot for the actor could result in three new late-night hosts for NBC.”
Baldwin has long been considered a quality guest on late night TV chat shows; is this time for the tables to finally be turned and for Baldwin to take up the mantle as a regular late night chat show host? He might have to get used to the paparazzi though, which he didn;t seem so happy about at his recent visit to The Late Show. Baldwin + Paparazzi hasn;t been a terribly successful combination of late though...

We've known for a while that Miley Cyrus has a soft spot for horses, so the latest cause proposed by her mom was right up Miley's alley.
There’s never a shortage of causes for celebs to rally behind and Miley Cyrus’s latest pet project probably won’t come as a surprise.
Yesterday, after a flurry of tweets in her horse onesie, the Can’t Be Tamed singer voiced her support for a petition to ban all horse-drawn carriages in New York. Miley tweeted a link to the petition online, at the suggestion of her mother, who was the first to get behind the ban. "Miley grew up around animals and with all our horses growing up, so she is very passionate about protecting all animals," mom Tish Cyrus explained for E!News. It made sense then, to try and use Miley’s enormous fan base to raise support for the petition.
And it worked! A spokeswoman for New Yorkers for Clean, Livable & Safe Streets, the organization behind the proposed ban, the organization behind the petition, has said that the 100 000 signature goal was “shattered”, largely because of the Cyrus family’s endorsement.

Shia LaBeouf quits Broadway play Orphans over creative differences with Alec Baldwin
Shia LaBeouf quits Broadway play after a week of rehearsals? We can’t say we’re too surprised. The actor was to play Treat in a revival of Lyle Kessler’s 1983 play Orphans, however, it appears he ran into difficulties with co-star Alec Baldwin, who himself has had a rough week after being accused of racist slurs by the New York Post. It’s bad news for LaBeouf fans who had already snapped up tickets for the Transformers star’s Broadway debut when they were made available two days ago, though the nature of his exit looks complex.
On Wednesday, LaBeouf – who allegedly dropped acid for his turn in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman - took to Twitter to post a series of emails to and from members of the creative team. One from the director Daniel Sullivan appears to hint at artistic tensions between LaBeouf and Baldwin, both hot-headed yet talented performers. “I'm too old for disagreeable situations,” Sullivan wrote, “You're one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it.” Sullivan appears to suggest Shia tried to dissuade him from putting him in the production, saying, “This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn't get it.”
In an email to both Baldwin and Sullivan, LaBeouf apologizes for his role in the situation, saying, “A man can tell you that he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologise, even if it's just to put an end to the bickering.” The correspondence paints a picture of a tense and frosty atmosphere on the set of the play, which is set to open at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in the spring. The production’s official website still features a banner with Baldwin, LaBeouf and the British actor Tom Sturridge.

Alec Baldwin Is Alleged To Have Used Racist Language To A New York Post Photographer
The New York Police Department's Hate Crime Task Force has launched an investigation into Alec Baldwin's recent outburst at a New York Post photographer. The snapper was called to a downtown station where he was interviewed about an alleged racially charged run-in with Baldwin outside the actor's East Village apartment building on Sunday (February 17, 2013). Photographer G.N Miller, a retired NYPD detective, told cops that the 30 Rock star called him a "coon," "a crackhead" and a "drug dealer."
Baldwin reportedly made the comments after telling reporter Tara Palmeri, "I want you to choke to death." The journalist had approached him while he was walking his dog to ask about the lawsuit against his wife Hilaria Thomas. "He said some foul s--t about my mom," Miller said. "He kept calling me a name, coon." Baldwin rejected the claim that Miller is a former police officer on Twitter, telling followers, "Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead 'photographer' shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch's nieces in tow," adding, "Ralston claims he's ex NYPD!! That can't be!!! Ex NYPD don't become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!" It's unclear why Baldwin referred to Miller as "Ralston," though he has already filed a complaint with police alleging that the photographer "pushed into him", during the incident.
State Senator Malcolm Smith has called on Hollywood to blacklist the actor, "If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help," Smith said. "In today's modern age, it's a disgrace that people still use remarks that provide hatred to others based on race, religion or origin."

Alec Baldwin has found himself on the receiving end of a Hate Crime investigation in New York, after allegedly hurling racist abuse at a paparazzi photographer working for the New York Post. According to a report from the publication, Baldwin made a number of offensive remarks to the photographer, GN Miller and the accompanying reporter Tara Palmeri. Baldwin reportedly referred to Miller as a “coon,” a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer.”
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force have now been called onto the case to investigate the incident, about the alleged race-hate crime, which happened outside of Baldwin’s East Village apartment that he shares with his pregnant wife Hilaria. According to the report, Baldwin’s offensive language wasn’t simply confined to that of a racist nature. He told Palmeri “I want to choke you to death” and told Miller “suck my d**k.” The comments were captured on Palmeri’s Dictaphone. Baldwin also filed his own complaint with the police, claiming that Miller had pushed him during the incident. Sources told the New York Post that the charges are being taken very seriously and that Baldwin could face charges if investigators find enough evidence.
Baldwin commented on the incident on his Twitter page, the New Post report, but say that the tweets have since been deleted. It apparently read “Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead ‘photographer’ shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch’s nieces in tow.” Another read “Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!” It is currently unclear why Baldwin referred to him as Ralston.

Great news for Alec Baldwin and his new wife Hilaria Thomas Baldwin! They’re expecting their first child together! Lovely stuff.
A rep confirmed the news to Reuters, though was shy on the details, refusing to comment on when the due date was. However, the pair have been giving some thoughts on the pregnancy to US TV Show Extra. “If I really shared with you how I felt, I would probably burst out crying," 30 Rock star Baldwin said. His wife works as a correspondent for the show, and also commented "It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise. Now I'm showing and it's getting to be much more, like, 'Oh, my God, this is actually going to happen'."
Baldwin already has one child from his previous marriage to Kim Bassinger, daughter Ireland, who was born in 1995. Bassinger and Baldwin were married for nine years between 1993 and 2002, just long enough for them to feature on a classic episode of The Simpsons as themselves, where they hide away on the outskirts of Springfield to avoid the public eye. The actor will have plenty of time to help his new wife through her pregnancy, given that 30 Rock finally came to a close recently after a hugely successful six year run.
Shut it down. That was exactly what 30 Rock did on Thursday, but Liz, Jack and the entire crew definitely went down in style. We’ll try not to spoil any major bits of the most anticipated TV event of 2013 for you, but let’s just say that all of the loose ends were neatly wrapped up – or most of them anyway. We never did learn what Kenneth’s creepy secret was – and he really does have one. Our money is on alien, but now we’ll never know. Liz and Jack’s longstanding friendship had probably the best possible farewell, paying tribute to one of the most entertaining on-screen dynamics of the last decade. Not to mention one of the best written – despite playing off of each other for seven years, the 30 Rock writers have always been clear that this particular pair will never slip into the will-they-won’t-they cliché.

Ben Affleck has responded to speculation that he is considering running for Senate, providing John Kerry's seat opens up. Several names have been mentioned for the possible vacancy including Scott Brown and Mike Capuano, though Democrat Affleck has also been linked with a run. He would need 10,000 certified signatures to enter the race, and didn't exactly deny the rumors when quizzed by CBS' Bob Schieffer this week.
Kerry's position in the Senate would open up should he become Secretary of State, and Affleck said, "One never knows. I'm not one to get into conjecture," when asked whether he would be interested in the job. The Argo director added, "I do have a great fondness and admiration for the political process in this country. It's a big deal for me to come down here and be on your show that I've watched so much, but I'm not going to get into speculation about my political future." Numerous celebrities, including George Clooney and Alec Baldwin have hinted at political aspirations, though Affleck would arguably be the most popular of the three should he run as a Democrat. The Hollywood star has long campaigned for charitable causes, and founded the Eastern Congo Initiative in a bid to improve conditions in the country. "I like to be involved. Right now, I'm really happy being involved from the outside in government, advocating for the Congolese, taking this movie that I've made 'Argo' and it's really become a springboard for dialogue about our relationship with Iran, which is, as Hillary Clinton said, the most pressing foreign policy issue today. So, I've got a lot on my plate," he said before the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday (December 19, 2012).
Affleck's Argo is up for Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the Golden Globes this year. It is considered a frontrunner for Best Picture at the Oscars.
Yesterday it was unveiled that actor Stephen Baldwin owes $350,000 in unpaid income taxes and penalties from 2008-2010 and was arrested for the debt. Today his brother, fellow actor Alec Baldwin has spoken in his defence.
"I don't think he's going to go to jail, I know that he's in a negotiated settlement... This was all prearranged with the D.A. for him to go in and make an appearance." He said, CNN reported, adding scathing comments about the papparazzi who plague all the Baldwin brothers, "My attitude is that the business would be infinitely better if all of them were gone... If I could press a button tomorrow and flush them all down some swirling sewer vortex I would do it."
Likewise, the man who's paid to speak in Stephen's defence, his lawyer, said "Mr. Baldwin did not commit any crimes, and he's working with the district attorney's office and the New York State Tax Department to resolve any differences."

Vividly colourful details in the animation and script bring mythical characters to life in ways that are thoroughly engaging as this riotous action-comedy soars through its epic story. It's a bit frantic, barely pausing to let us admire the artistry, but it's a lively thrill-ride of a movie that will keep both adults and kids on the edge of their seats.
Jack Frost (Pine) is a lonely boy no one else can see, so he has no idea why he exists at all. He fills time creating snowy-icy mischief to make children laugh, and feels out of his depth when he is summoned by the Guardians of childhood: burly Russian Father Christmas (Baldwin), tough-talking Aussie Easter Bunny (Jackman), fluttering Tooth Fairy (Fisher) and wordless Sandman. They need him to help them defeat Pitch (Law), a boogeyman who is replacing children's imaginations with nasty nightmares in an effort to get them to believe only in him. So while Jack works out a plan to get rid of Pitch, he also needs to figure out if he belongs with the Guardians.
Screenwriter Lindsay-Abaire and the animation team have a lot of fun with the characters, which are loosely based on the William Joyce novels. Each person is fully formed, with terrific vocal work from gifted actors who pack their characters with personality, especially Baldwin and Jackman. So their interaction zings with attitude even as the imagery bursts with hilarious details. Since the story is centred on Jack, he's the one who carries us through, and he's an engaging reluctant hero in the vein of Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins. Watching him discover his own inner skills is often exhilarating.

The cast of The Rise Of The Guardians [L-R] Jeffrey Katzenberg, Nancy Bernstein, Peter Ramsey, Christina Steinberg and Alec Baldwin
The cast of The Rise Of The Guardians were out in force at the AFI Festival last night (November 4, 2012) as the film made its long awaited premiere debut in Hollywood. Though there are many big screenings taking places across the festival's eight days, plenty of attention has been placed on the forthcoming 3D computer-animated fantasy-adventure film which, in addition to the attending Alec Baldwin, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Nancy Bernstein, Peter Ramsey and Christina Steinberg, also stars Hugh Jackman and Jude Law.

Ashton Kutcher has been named TV’s highest paid actor. The Two and a Half Men star may have disgraced himself in the celebrity gossip world, by allegedly cheating on his partner Demi Moore, but in the world of television, he’s still hot property and commands a staggering fee for his appearances in the show.
According to Forbes’ annual survey of the highest paid television actors, Kutcher earned $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. His predecessor on Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen (who left the show in a pretty dramatic fashion after suffering what appeared to be some kind of mental breakdown) did not even make the Top 10. That said, when Sheen was at the top of his game, he out-classed Kutcher significantly, with earnings of $40 million. Sheen wasn’t the only big name star to mysteriously disappear from the Top 10 though. Steve Carell, who proved to be a massive hit on the small screen with the US adaptation of Ricky Gervais’ The Office, also dropped off the list.
Snapping at Kutcher’s heels at the top of the list was Hugh Laurie, who ranked second with $18 million, largely for his role in House. Ray Romano earned an equal amount, and still appears to be raking it in with re-runs of his classic Everybody Loves Raymond comedy. Alec Baldwin’s in next with $15 million, still charming TV audiences with his role in 30 Rock.
Baldwin plays an architect who returns to his student stomping grounds and meets Jack (Eisenberg), who seems to be living his old life, even as he falls for a friend (Page) of his girlfriend (Gerwig). Meanwhile, there's Leopoldo (Benigni), a dull businessman who suddenly becomes a celebrity for no reason he can see, is pursued everywhere by the paparazzi and starts to enjoy the high life. Across town, Jerry and Phyllis (Allen and Davis) arrive to meet the fiance (Parenti) of their daughter (Pill). Then Jerry pushes a future in-law (Armiliato) into becoming the latest opera sensation. Finally, a young couple arrives from the country to start a new life in the city, but the husband (Tiberi) ends up having a farcical day out with a sexy prostitute (Cruz) while the wife (Mastronardi) meets her favourite actor (Albanese).

Small-town girl Sherrie (Hough) takes the bus to 1987 Hollywood to become a rock star. There she meets Drew (Boneta), who has the same dream and works in the famed Bourbon Room on the Sunset Strip. He convinces the owner (Baldwin) to hire her as a barmaid just as diva-rocker Stacee Jaxx (Cruise) comes to play a major gig. Buzzing around him are a Rolling Stone journalist (Akerman) wanting an interview and a right-winger (Zeta-Jones) trying to protect the children from the evils of rock-n-roll.

British actors Julie Christie and Daniel Day-Lewis have won the top acting prizes at the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) awards.
While Christie took the best actress gong for her acclaimed portrayal of a woman facing dementia in Sarah Polley's Away From Her, Day-Lewis was rewarded for his stunning role as an amoral oil prospector in Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood.
Though the awards season has been jeopardised by the ongoing industrial action by the Writers' Guild of America (WGA), the SAG awards were held without a hitch after an interim agreement was signed between the two unions, allowing acting talent to attend the ceremony without having to cross picket lines.
Christie - who is nominated for the best actress Academy award for her part in Away From Her - paid tribute to the SAG, adding to The Associated Press: "It's lovely to receive an award from your own union, especially at a time when we're being so forcefully reminded how important unions are."
And Day-Lewis dedicated his award to the late Heath Ledger, who was tragically found dead in his New York apartment last week.
"In Brokeback Mountain he was unique, he was perfect," Day-Lewis said while accepting his trophy.
"That scene in the trailer at the end of the film is as moving as anything I think I've ever seen."
The 50-year-old added backstage that he had never met Ledger but had been profoundly affected by the actor's death.
"I thought he was beautiful. I just had a very strong feeling I would have liked him very much as a man," he said. "I admired him very much. I'm absolutely certain he would have done many wonderful things in his life."
Javier Bardem took the best supporting actor prize for his role as psychotic killer Anton Chigurh in the Coen Brothers' No Country For Old Men, which also won the award for outstanding cast in a motion picture.
With The Sopranos finally coming to an end, leads James Gandolfini and Edie Falco claimed the best actor and best actress prizes for TV dramas, while Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey, the stars of NBC's 30 Rock, took the comedy equivalents.
And another NBC series, The Office - an adaptation of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's Golden Globe-winning sitcom - won the award for best cast in a comedy programme.

The Departed is based on the Hong Kong blockbuster Infernal Affairs, in which a cop goes undercover in the mob while the mob places one of their own as a mole in the police force. In Scorsese's version, the scene shifts to Boston, where mob boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) puts loyal-from-boyhood employee Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) through police training. As Sullivan rises through the ranks, Special Investigations Unit chiefs Queenan (Martin Sheen) and Dignam (Mark Wahlberg) recruit rookie Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) to get "kicked off" the force and do time to gain Costello's confidence.

Cats & Dogs is ridiculous and harmless, a Mission: Impossible for the animal world. For years, a secret high-tech espionage war has been waged between the feline and canine races, right under the noses of ignorant humans. The spark of this high-tech war came about as the result of the dog race overthrowing the then-dominating cat race during ancient Egyptian times (they even ruled the human race). Man's best friend re-established the humans as the dominant race and has protected that balance for years. And a breakthrough for dogs is approaching, as one human, Professor Brody (Jeff Goldblum), is on the verge of discovering an allergy vaccine which will enable all humans and dogs to co-exist in peace. The only problem is that the diabolic Mr. Tinkle (voiced by Sean Hayes), a furry white Persian with the attitude of Richard Grant's character from Hudson Hawk, and his small army of pesky felines have "cat-knapped" the family dog Buddy, who has been guarding the Professor and his family from the tuna-breathed fiends. The bodyguard job then falls on the shoulders of a Beagle pup named Lou (voiced by Toby Maguire) -- who is mistaken as a secret agent dog by an Anatolian Shepard named Butch (voiced by Alec Baldwin).

Book-ended by a infuriatingly obvious graduation speech, the film kicks off with Mini (Nikki Reed) explaining how she needs to be a hooker, because modern, rich life is too damn easy. Her trick this evening just happens to be Martin (Alec Baldwin), her stepfather, who somehow doesn't notice the voice of his stepdaughter and agrees to turn off the lights for the entirety of the night. When confronted, Martin is apprehensive, but Mini sees opportunity in this equation. She quickly makes Martin a sex slave and devises a plan to get Diane (Carrie-Anne Moss), her mom sent to the looney bin, allowing for her and Martin to not have to hide their affair. Well, things go bad: Diane dies from an overdose, their neighbor (Jeff Goldblum) gets suspicious, and Detective Garson (Luke Wilson, for some reason) starts snooping around. Soon, Martin and Mini start questioning each other's motives.

Ironically, this incident, where ship's cook Dorie Miller took charge and shot back during America's worst hour on December 7, 1941, is just about the only true event to be found in the entire, oppressive three-hour film. (And our producers are quick to remind us of just how ripped-from-history this little vignette is. Never mind that Gooding has a pitiful excuse for a role with maybe five minutes of screen time.)

The deceptively simple plot begins when uber-famous film star Anna Scott (Roberts) winds up in William's (Grant) book shop on Notting Hill, something of a British cross between a pre-Disney Times Square and a Moroccan street market. After William accidentally dumps orange juice down Anna's front, an on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again love affair blossoms.

Crowe's uncanny knack for turning up the volume has allowed countless scenes to soar to their potential. One problem nagging Elizabethtown, Crowe's most awkward project to date, is that the director is obligated to crank the knob again and again to overcome bland performances and missed emotional connections. He has assembled another astonishing collection of inspirational rock tracks, but for the first time the soundtrack outshines the accompanying movie by a long shot.

She has done some things right: she's cast big stars, like Alec Baldwin as the Lilliputian Mr. Conductor, and Peter Fonda as the sad grandpa, Burnett Stone; her production designers have continued the show's happy train colors, with bright blues and reds, and have added bonus design touches to the live sets and wardrobe; her script applauds positive thinking, creativity, and foiling the bad guy. It's just that all of this is mired in a clunky set of hole-filled plots, confusing enough to make me want to interrogate the little guy sitting in front of me.

Since the beginning of time mankind has posed the most difficult questions: "Is the Earth round or flat?" "Is there life after death?" "Why is junk food so tasty?"
But no question elicits quite the same response as: "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?"
The answer, of course, is the star of Nickelodeon's enormously popular cartoon series "SpongeBob SquarePants," which enjoys nearly as many adult fans as it does children. After five years on television, the little sponge now hits the big screen with the aptly titled "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie."

Fifty percent groundbreaking, breathtaking computer-generated visuals, 30 percent New Age spiritual hokum, 15 percent generic post-apocalyptic science fiction and five percent lame action flick clichés, "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" is such a eccentric amalgam of methods and moods that it's unlikely to leave anyone terribly impressed in the end. But absolutely everyone will be agog at the first 10 minutes.
Far and away the most mind-blowingly photo-realistic computer-animated movie to date, "Final Fantasy" wastes no time showing off what its huge staff of renderers can do, opening the picture with a fantastical dream sequence that includes a truly transporting alien landscape unequaled in the history of sci-fi cinema.
Its billowy red sky, gigantic looming moon, crystalline rock formations and sweeping vistas feel as real as another world could on screen. This was most definitely not shot through fancy filters in a quarry somewhere.

Jennifer Aniston must have been struck with serious deja vu while filming one pivotal scene from "Along Came Polly," in which she discovers that a neurotic risk assessor (Ben Stiller) -- whom she's been seeing since his bride dumped him on their honeymoon -- has used his laptop computer to make a list of pros and cons about their relationship, hoping to analyze his way to Ms. Right.
Almost the exact same circumstances once led to the breakup on "Friends" between her Rachel and David Schwimmer's neurotic, risk-averse Ross.
It's just such a tendency toward the derivative that leaves "Along Came Polly" lacking any fresh romantic-comedy punch. A blind pet ferret that wreaks havoc on Stiller's attempted seductions smacks of the dog that did the same in "There's Something About Mary." A scene in which Stiller kisses up to his boss (Alec Baldwin) in the men's room recalls an awkward moment in "Brazil," and the urinal humor that drives the scene is straight out of "Austin Powers" (which was hardly the originator of such gags in the first place).

The handful of battle scenes that make up a good hour of "Pearl Harbor" are adrenaline-pumping and hyper-realistic on a massive scale.
You feel the impact of every single 7.7mm round from dive-bombing Japanese Zeros as they rip through pavement, planes and people in the infamous attack around which the film in centered. Director Michael Bay's camera goes inside cockpits, rides along on bombs from release to explosion, captures the terror of a torpedo in the water from the deck of a ship and includes some of the best special effects ever put on film.
The money shot is a hull-buckling blast that rips through the USS Arizona. It makes being on a luxury liner hit by an iceberg look like a 25-cent carnival ride.
