|Alec on the set of Up Late|
The most amazing thing about Alec Baldwin is what a fan he still is despite being a long established member of the club. He is forever in awe of SNL and shows up there whenever Lorne Michaels calls. He says that Michaels and Tina Fey "changed his life" with the opportunity to do 30 Rock. And the last thing he said when he interviewed Billy Joel (a fellow Long Islander) was, "You're the king!"
This quote probably sums up Alec and my admiration of him best:
"And yet, for everything that's happened to him and around him, Alec Baldwin shows not the pitted surface of a battered survivor but the smooth finish of a beloved entertainer." - James Wolcott, Vanity Fair March 2010
