Alec Baldwin punched another photographer today

Alec Baldwin went and got a marriage license this morning in New York, then punched a photographer for the New York Daily News in the face. Because now someone might deduce that he’s getting married, and otherwise that would have stayed a secret for a thousand years.

Santos (the photographer) was standing innocently with two other photographers when Baldwin, 54, approached with an angry glare.

“He was looking mad,” said Santos. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”

Baldwin then grabbed a second News photographer, Jefferson Siegel, and Santos told (Baldwin) to back off.
“He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.”

And straight to twitter

An unrepentant Baldwin presented his version of the clash, via Twitter: “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded”

I’m not sure celebrities really understand how hashtagging works.

’30 Rock’ reminds us that blackface is always funny

By brendon April 27, 2012 @ 4:23 PM








For last nights live episode of ’30 Rock’, the cast performed the show twice (once for the east coast and once for the west) and one of the biggest differences (here’s 25 more) was right at the beginning, when Jack McBrayer led a guest into Alec Baldwins office. For the east coast, the guest was Paul McCartney. For the west, it was Kim Kardashian. Which seems like an overly complicated way of telling the west coast to go fuck itself.

Luckily one thing that stayed the same was Jon Hamm as Tracy Morgans brother in a 60’s sitcom called ‘Abner and Alfie’. Which looks like it would be a really good show. That ol’ Abner is all gettin into monkeyshines!

Alec Baldwin is marrying his yoga instructor

Eight months ago there was a report that Alec Baldwin (who is 54) was planning to propose to his girlfriend Hilaria Thomas (who is 28), and now it’s finally happened, and she was even seen earlier today in New York with her engagement ring. Surprisingly, it’s huge. Totally not what I expected in this story about a millionaire in his mid 50′s who dates a yoga instructor half his age.

Billy Baldwin has to fly coach

I’m mean spirited and petty, so I squealed with delight to see Billy Baldwin flying coach on an Alaska Airlines flight to Idaho. It makes me feel better about myself when a famous person can’t afford to fly first class. I bet Gwyneth Paltrow would be surprised to see that they even have seats back there. If you asked her to describe coach she would probably say people sit on old wooden benches, and there’s goats and chickens walking around and hay on the floor and oars sticking out of the side of the plane, and it gets real windy when they put the landing gear down. Gwyneth Paltrow is an elitist cunt, is my point.

Anyway, Baldwin sat back there and read political cartoons in the LA Times, which perfectly fits the perception I have when it comes to where actors get their information about politics.

Alec Baldwin was kicked off a plane

The reason you’re not allowed to use electronic devices on a plane during take off and landing isn’t because planes aren’t iPad proof, but because that’s when most accidents happen, and you may need to quickly focus on emergency instructions. If the air bag drops down, and you take your headphones out and yell, “what the hell is this thing”, the flight attendant is probably just gonna flip you off, and rightfully so.

But apparently this is all news to Alec Baldwin, who got kicked off an American Airlines flight from LA to New York yesterday. He tweeted

“Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.”

If it seems unreasonable to kick someone off a plane for quietly playing a game while parked at the gate, thats because it is, and because that’s not what happened. He left out the part where they were actually on the runway ready to take off and that he locked himself in the bathroom, screaming at everyone and pounding on the walls. The New York Post says…

“Apparently he said he was playing a game, but he was actually talking on the phone. She [the flight attendant] was very nice. The door was closed they just announced that they were pulling away from the gate. He got up threw his papers on the floor stormed into the bathroom slammed the door closed, beat on the wall and then came back.”
“He said ‘If you want to kick me off, kick me off.’ He was just crazy, he just flipped out, the guy has problems.”
A crew member who dealt with (Baldwin) said he couldn’t stay on the flight.
“He was violent, abusive and aggressive. He got into the bathroom and started beating on the wall and he pounded his fists on the galley counter. Yelling, screaming, very ugly. It was unsafe to keep him on board that’s why he got kicked out.”
The crew member did not want to give her name, but said she asked him five times to get off his phone.
“He was asked five times. I contacted the captain. We were brought back in and he was let off the plane.”

I like the phrase “thrown off a flight” because I picture a plane at 30,000 feet with the door open and two of the pilots each holding one of Baldwins arms and legs, swinging him back then flinging him out into the clouds. And then one of the pilots looks back into the cabin, gestures toward the open door and says, “no ticket”, like Indiana Jones did in ‘Last Crusade’, and then everyone would laugh because it’s a pretty good joke. The imaginary pilot I just made up has impeccable comic timing.

Alec Baldwin fells bad for Joe Paterno

If you were wondering if anyone could look like more of an asshole than Ashton Kutcher on twitter in regards to Joe Paterno, the short answer is yes. The somewhat longer answer is yes and it’s Alec Baldwin, who retweeted something earlier today with a #freepaterno hashtag (though he’s since deleted it) and who wrote this sequence last night:

- Add Paterno’s name to the list of people who exit the stage embroiled in a sex scandal. Sad.
- Oh. We have a lot of “attorneys” out there this evening.
- OK. For all your lawyers out there, molestation scandal.
- There is so little empathy in this world 2day. It’s truly pathetic. I didn’t say Paterno was innocent. I said that his story … ends on a sad note.

Wait does he really consider raping young boys to be the same thing as “sex”? Because it seems like a distinction had to be dragged out of him. He could really be in a tight hole now, which is ironic since that was Jerry Sanduskys problem too.
