A New Direction For Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin is a brilliant, versatile actor. Is this the best direction for him to take, though?
I've always wished he's been able to make the sequels to The Hunt For Red October. I like Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine, but to me, Alec Baldwin will always be the Jack Ryan.
He's a brilliant dramatic actor; an outrageously funny comedian and spokesperson, a passionate activist - but also a very volatile human being! He's been kinda scary sometimes. I remember reading an essay he wrote a few years ago when he was turning his back on celebrity and retiring to a more quiet private life away from prying cameras.
Now, he's going to be adding Game Show Host to his resume!
ABC is launching "Sunday Fun & Games Night" June 26th, with Steve Harvey hosting Celebrity Family Feud. Michael Strahan will host a new version of the $100,000 Pyramid.
Alec Baldwin will host a new, updated version of Match Game. It's supposed to run for ten episodes over the summer. A pair of contestants compete to match correct answers with a panel of six celebrities.
This could be genius, like casting Baldwin on 30 Rock was.
