Alec Baldwin

Actor, Director, Writer

4/3/1958 (64 years old) Amityville, New York, United States

The eldest of the Baldwin brothers is a talented player known for his fiery persona both on and off screen. Early '80s roles in a number of TV series (the daytime soap The Doctors, the prime-time sudser Knots Landing), led to big-screen roles in films such as Working Girl and Beetlejuice. By 1990, he had graduated to leading man status, starring as a CIA analyst in the Cold War actioner The Hunt for Red October. In 1993 he married actress Kim Basinger, whom he met on the set of the 1991 film The Marrying Man. Their union, which produced daughter Ireland, ended in 2002, though their custody battles have remained tabloid fodder in the years since. Despite such personal issues, Baldwin has enjoyed continued professional success, starring in the sitcom 30 Rock and remaining one of Saturday Night Live's most popular guest hosts. In 2010, Baldwin took on yet another high-profile gig, cohosting the 82nd annual Academy Awards with Steve Martin.
