Alec Baldwin and Stuffed Dogs on 'The Marriage Ref' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 1st 2010 1:25AM
The Marriage Ref, Alec BaldwinWould you want your best dog pal stuffed so you could be near it the rest of your life? That's just totally creepy. We're with the wife on this one. But at least it made for a few laughs on 'The Marriage Ref' (Sun., 7PM ET on NBC).

"I think if you're gonna stuff your dog, you should stuff it in either a useful or attractive position," said Alec Baldwin. "Women come and go, but a stuffed dog is forever."

And should we comment on the irony of Baldwin being on a show called 'The Marriage Ref'? Sure, why not.

Whoopi Goldberg: 'Alec Baldwin's Phone Call Was Misunderstood' (VIDEO)

'The View' ladies discuss Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin may be a fine actor (some say), but let's face it; he's got some issues. There was that scandal a few years ago when he called his daughter Ireland a "pig," and just a few days ago, he was rushed to a hospital. Rumor has it that he and 14-year-old Ireland had been arguing, and he said he was going to "take some pills and end this."

Well, you have to wonder about all this. Baldwin seems to be on top of the world professionally. He's still riding high on '30 Rock,' has a nice movie career going, and he's co-hosting the 2010 Oscars with Steve Martin.

Then again, you never know what goes on in a person's private life. He could be a total hot mess. The ladies of 'The View' (weekdays, 11AM ET on ABC) had a few things to say about it. Whoopi Goldberg believes the phone call was misunderstood.

Jerry Seinfeld Gets Madonna for 'The Marriage Ref'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 14th 2010 1:00PM
the_marriage_ref_jerry_seinfeldThis is rich. One of the celebrity judges on Jerry Seinfeld's new reality show, 'The Marriage Ref' will be Madonna. That's right. Madonna. How funny is that? For advice on dancing or pop sings or shocking the public or even cone-shaped bras, Madonna would be the authority to go to. However, is she really the person you'd go to for marital advice?

Still, it's a big time booking for Seinfeld's new show. She's a star. And when you consider that Alec Baldwin is another choice for marriage judge, the requirement for appearing on the show is not personal success with marital relations. Lately, Alec Baldwin has been the poster boy for how not to handle joint custody of a child post-divorce!

Michael C. Hall, Mad Men score Golden Globe awards

Mad Men, Golden Globes 2010
Did your favorite actors and TV shows score Golden Globe awards tonight? Let's take a look at how things shook out in the TV categories at the 67th Annual Golden Globes.

Mad Men, Best Television Series - Drama.
With competition from Big Love, Dexter, House, and True Blood, I'm really glad I wasn't picking the winner here. They're all fantastic. I wouldn't say that True Blood delivered its best episodes last season, so I don't have a problem with that one not winning (though I'm a big fan of the show). Mad Men is definitely deserving (especially the "lawn mower" episode), although Dexter and Big Love both had great seasons.

Best TV of the '00s: Comedic Actor

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 3rd 2010 11:01AM
neil_patrick_harris_cbsMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the funniest actors of the last ten years.

If you want to be a great comedic actor, you can never let on that you know you're being funny. Your character never knows what the joke is. That's why Rodney Dangerfield was a great, legendary stand-up comedian, and a fairly poor comic actor.

Everyone on this list excels at the comedic poker face. Steve Carell and Ricky Gervais, in their Office boss characters, don't know that most of the rest of the office is laughing at them. Or at least they don't understand why. Stephen Colbert, despite all of the attention The Colbert Report have received, may be the most underrated comic actor, because the character is so seamless, sometimes it's hard to tell it's a character. Shatner is a legend for playing campy with a poker face. And Neil Patrick Harris as a cad? A straight cad? Perfect.

Here are a few of our favorite comedic actors from the past decade, and may their characters never realize the joke's on them.

Alec Baldwin Talks Butt Double on 'Letterman' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 24th 2009 8:59AM
Being Alec Baldwin's butt double has its perks, including access to the best tables in the finest restaurants across New York.

Baldwin appeared on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' to promote his upcoming rom-com 'It's Complicated,' and told David Letterman he had a stand-in backside for the movie's more revealing scenes. And, according to Baldwin, the actor whose posterior subbed for his more famous rear end is now enjoying a degree of new-found celebrity.

Top TV Stories of 2009: The continued rise of online video

When Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Emmys, Dr. Horrible conveniently invaded for a moment, spreading webseries fear throughout the TV industry audience. It was a funny bit, serving mainly as a vehicle for some jokes about buffering and tiny screen sizes. Hopefully that made the TV people feel better, if only for a little while, because online video is showing no signs of stopping.

Golden Globes: Best TV Actor Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 12th 2009 3:00PM
Usually, the Golden Globes are a little more cutting-edge than the Emmys, a little quicker to recognize new talent on TV. When this year's nominations are announced on Dec. 15, however, you can expect a battle of Globe warhorses, as veterans will largely elbow newcomers out of the way in the struggle for each of the five slots in the Best Actor categories, drama and comedy.

Alec Baldwin announces his retirement one more time

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 30th 2009 8:02PM
alec_baldwin_30_rock"Hello, my name is Alec and I'm a retirement-holic. ...I don't know why, but I have this insatiable need to announce to the world again and again that I'm quitting the acting business. I don't know what I'm going to do."

Okay, that's not a real scene from the life of Alec Baldwin, but it might as well be. About a year and a half ago, Alec was kvetching about turning 50 years old and how he only cared about the Emmys honoring 30 Rock, and his plans to quit the business.

And now he's done it again. In an interview with Men's Journal, promoting his new movie with Meryl Streep and Steve Martin called It's Complicated, Alec Baldwin says he will quit acting in 2012 when his 30 Rock contract comes to an end.

Julianne Moore Spotted on '30 Rock' Set: Can She Pull Off Comedy?

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Nov 6th 2009 1:39PM
Julianne Moore 30 RockYesterday, Julianne Moore was reportedly seen in New York's Rockefeller Center, aka the filming location for NBC's Emmy-winning comedy '30 Rock.' Sources at E! are now predicting that Moore will be Jack Donaghy's (Alec Baldwin) new love interest this season.

Reps for NBC and Moore have yet to release an official statement. But in a recent interview, Baldwin himself said "I won't say who it is, but someone very near to us may be coming on to play my girlfriend for four episodes."

Onlookers at yesterday's filming didn't find any evidence to either confirm or deny the rumor, only catching things in between takes. But one snoop said that the two looked "very chummy," and seemed to be the only ones on location.

Oscars Select Martin, Baldwin as Hosts

by Andrew Scott, posted Nov 4th 2009 9:00AM
Steve Martin Alec Baldwin Oscars hostsSteve Martin and Alec Baldwin will host the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, Variety is reporting. Last year's host, Hugh Jackman, recently opted not to return.

This will be Martin's third time hosting the Oscars. He was last seen on the Kodak stage in 2003, which went on to become the lowest-rated Oscar telecast ever to that point (it was later "topped" by Jon Stewart in 2008). Baldwin has never hosted, although he did receive a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for the 2003 film 'The Cooler.'

Baldwin and Martin can also be seen in the upcoming Nancy Meyers comedy, 'It's Complicated,' due in theaters this December.

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to host the Oscars

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 3rd 2009 10:17PM
oscar_gold_statuetteThe Vegas oddsmakers were wrong about Billy Crystal. He isn't hosting the Oscars. Neither is Hugh Jackman. No, today it was announced that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will serve as cohosts of the 82nd Academy Awards. Interestingly, Martin and Baldwin are costarring -- with Meryl Streep -- in the upcoming romantic comedy, It's Complicated.

Choosing these two guys, however, is not complicated. It's actually pretty damn clever. Both men are very funny, very comfortable in the moment -- a necessity for a complicated show like the Oscars when anything can go wrong -- and they bring a lot of good will and star power to the proceedings.
