A Conversation with Alec Baldwin
Award-winning actor of films, theater, and television (most recently, an Emmy for 30 Rock), political activist, and author/blogger Alec Baldwin has not only entertained audiences throughout his career, but also made them think. Before becoming an actor, he considered law school, which may account for his convincing portrayal of lawyers in such films as Ghosts of Mississippi, The Confession, and Nuremberg: Infamy on Trial. Whether as a political pundit or a frequent blogger on The Huffington Post, Baldwin always has interesting things to say.
