Alec Baldwin headed to NBC... maybe
Alec Baldwin appears to be on his way to a role in Tina Fey's still untitled NBC sitcom; the actor is in final talks to join the cast. Baldwin hasn't been seriously involved with a TV series since Knots Landing, although he's had a recurring role on Will & Grace. Thus far, all that's known about the show is that it will focus on the behind the scenes antics of a sketch comedy show similar to Saturday Night Live. It should be noted that Aaron Sorkin's next project is quite similar.
This shouldn't be a stretch for Baldwin who has hosted SNL numerous times now. I'll be interested to see if Fey, still a head writer at SNL, will try and split her time or leave to focus just on the sitcom.
