Actor Profile: Alec Baldwin

Since bursting onto the scene in the late 80s with supporting roles in movies like Beetlejuice and Working Girl, and cementing his star-status with The Hunt for Red October and Glengarry Glen Ross, Alec Baldwin’s unparalleled versatility has kept him in the spotlight for three decades as he’s followed a career path of his own design – from heartthrob, to leading man, to character actor, to sitcom star, to his current late-night comedy gig parodying the most powerful man in the world. Join Hollywood Suite from March 10–12 for a look back at some of his best film roles.
