Alec Baldwin Talks About His Axed Emmys Sketch & Schweddy Balls Ice Cream (VIDEO)

Alec Baldwin wasn't at the Emmys on Sunday night, but he still managed to occupy some of the spotlight. Word leaked out before the ceremony that the '30 Rock' actor had originally been slated to be in the Emmys opening montage, but dropped out of the sketch when Fox execs nixed a News Corp. joke about the phone hacking scandal. Baldwin went on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) to talk about that, and the new Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls Flavor, inspired by an 'SNL' sketch he starred in as Pete Schweddy.

On the Emmys sketch, Baldwin said he thought News Corp. might have some sense of humor about the scandal, but when they didn't, he simply asked that his bit be removed from the sketch. His part was replaced by Leonard Nimoy, and Baldwin was perfectly cool with that.

The interview then devolved into a series of Schweddy Balls jokes when Kit Hoover suggested that Baldwin should've just sent the Fox execs some of his signature ice-cream. "You should stop projecting your sexual fantasies onto this interview," Baldwin joked, before Billy Bush said that he had Schweddy Balls in his mouth for the first time. Will these jokes ever get old? Are they old already? We are still amused, but let us know what you think in the comments.
