I’m no Alec Baldwin expert, but I wasn’t aware that he was in a position to give people relationship advice. I mean, I’m sure he does great with the ladies, but that doesn’t mean he’s an expert. That means he’s a rich actor. And I know he’s got one very bitter divorce under his belt, which is a strike against him.

But, again, he’s a famous actor, so he gets a web series doing pretty much anything he wants. And what he wants is Love Ride, a show in which he grabs couples and throws them in a car (you know, like a kidnapper would), then pries into their lives to give them advice.

This is the first episodes, there’s one more out, and they will be released weekly until everyone’s relationship is fixed or until Alec Baldwin dies. Whatever happens first.

Alec Baldwin And Kevin Spacey To Lend Their Voices To Dreamworks Animation’s ‘Boss Baby’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alec-baldwin-and-kevin-spacey-to-lend-their-voices-to-dreamworks-animations-boss-baby/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alec-baldwin-and-kevin-spacey-to-lend-their-voices-to-dreamworks-animations-boss-baby/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 18:13:59 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=265631 A baby boss? That's impractical!

The post Alec Baldwin And Kevin Spacey To Lend Their Voices To Dreamworks Animation’s ‘Boss Baby’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
In the interest of full, completely unnecessary disclosure, I wrote a whole version of this piece having misread all the title as ‘Boss’s Body’. Many jokes were predicated on how it sounded like a soft-core pornography. I’m a little forlorn that I can’t use them, because the movie is called ‘Boss Baby’. Lame. 

Actors Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey will be stepping out of frame and into the ADR booth to give their voices to Dreamworks upcoming animated comedy, Boss Baby. In case you couldn’t infer from the pic, “boss” isn’t used colloquially, like “That baby is soooooo boss,” but rather traditionally, as the person who decides that you’re now going to be responsible for paying your own offsite parking, and the person who gets IT to block fantasy football websites.

BUT IN BABY FORM.

The guy who directed Madagascar, Tom McGrath, is directing, and the release date is March 18, 2016.

I’m still a little deflated that I don’t get to make my Boss’s Body jokes, so I’ll just give a rundown of the premise (via THR) and show myself out to mope.

[Boss Baby] embarks on a mission to win back the sole affection of his parents, he stumbles upon a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co. (voiced by Spacey) that threatens to destroy the balance of love in the world – and this brash baby executive masquerading as his new brother is at the center of it all.   Now, they must come together as true brothers to stop the dastardly scheme, save their parents, restore order to the world, and prove that love is indeed an infinite force.

Whatever. Boss’s Body would have been a steamy erotic thriller that takes place in the high-pressure world of Silicon Valley finance.

The post ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ Casts Some Actors, Old And New appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
By “old” in that headline regarding the next Mission: Impossible, I didn’t mean that to be read as “elderly,” but rather “familiar.” And by “new” I wasn’t implying that an infant would be getting a starring role (though that would be very interesting). but it just so happens that the familiar actor is “old”(er) and the unfamiliar one is younger.

So I have no idea what I’m saying. The “old” is Alec Baldwin, who, despite his interest in the returning to TV, has signed on to play the head of the CIA, hopefully in the same fashion he player a state police bureaucrat in The Departed. And Rebecca Ferguson, who just recently made her English-language debut in The White Queen on the BBC.

Why does a woman named Rebecca Ferguson not speak English as a first language? Because was raised in Sweden.

She will be playing the lead opposite Cruise, but little else is known.

Knowing full well that he doesn’t possess the temperament to cry through a paper bag in an art gallery, Alec Baldwin has opted to drop out of public life altogether. A frequent target to the paparazzi and the press in general, Baldwin has decided he will distance himself from conflict by moving from New York to California. “I’ve lived this for 30 years, I’m done with it,” Baldwin announced in a 5,284-word essay for New York magazine.

At least in California, he doesn’t have to worry about photographers waiting outside his bear cage to poke him with sticks. There he will have a vast estate where he won’t have to wear Monopoly on his face

Lady Gaga has done it again.

or pretend to be a scary ghost.

Baldwin was allowed to keep all of his 'Beetlejuice' wardrobe.

Screen Junkies wishes Alec Baldwin luck on his big move out west and we have two hopes. 1) that he doesn’t throw any paparazzi off a cliff, and 2) that he moves in next to Justin Bieber. Their feuds would be EPIC.

Alec Baldwin, a man who, offscreen, carries the double-edged sword of being incredibly outspoken and insanely rude, got in hot water over the weekend for getting busted saying some things that could be construed as homophobic.

He said these things to an intrusive photographer, which probably doesn’t mitigate the the utterances, but gives some context.

His show which premiered last month, will be suspended for a couple weeks, and Baldwin has said that he’s contemplating ditching the show and ditching show business at large, but nothing more has been said on that today, so we’ll see if he sticks to that pledge.

The post Alec Baldwin Is Also Getting Mixed-Up In This NBC Late-Night Business appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Exactly how, though, is unclear. Initially, there were rumors that Baldwin was going to slide into the not-so-coveted 1:35 AM slot amid the shifting with the Fallons and the Seth Meyerseseses of the world, but someone was overlooked in this whole mess.

Poor Carson Daly, who has maintained the 1:35 AM slot for a while now, but is easy to overlook because no one watches or remembers that his show is on the air. Well, as it turns out, NBC did finally remember him, probably after one of the execs was showering following the development meeting and simply epiphanied, “CARSON DALY!”

So Alec won’t be getting a show on NBC just yet, which may disappoint his legion of podcast fans, but it will probably happen, if only because it’s NBC, and this whole mix-up process will start itself over in a year or so.

If you see Alec Baldwin in public, it’s probably a good idea to advise your party to slowly back away while leaving any food you have with you on the ground. No sudden movements. That’s a lesson that NY Post reporters and photographers just can’t seem to learn for whatever reason.

Baldwin allegedly grabbed a female reporter by the arm and wished death upon her before making racist comments to her photographer.

Baldwin was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
(He) grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death,” Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.
He then called G.N. Miller — a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a “coon, a drug dealer.’’
At one point, Miller showed Baldwin ID to prove he’s a retired NYPD cop, which Baldwin dismissed as “fake.”
Cops were called, and Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, both filed harassment claims against each other.

Of course, many are shocked by this nasty behavior. When asked for comment, former 30 Rock co-star Judah Friedlander said, “Holy shit. The show’s over. Who’s going to pay me to wear baseball hats now?”

The trailer for Adam Shankman‘s Rock of Ages is here and it has everything you’d expect. Big stars with terrible haircuts, hot babes, and your favorite ‘80′s rock anthems made faaaabulooousssss. That’s not to say that it looks bad. The whole thing is handled in a tongue-in-cheek way and the jokes hit exactly as they should. This is mostly thanks to Words with Friends champion, Alec Baldwin. He may not be a courteous flyer but the man can sell a vomit joke.

Other notable standouts are Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Malin Akerman. Cruise because he nails the bored rock star part, Zeta-Jones because she chews the scenery as an uptight conservative protestor and Malin Akerman because you almost see her boobs.

The post Alec Baldwin And 5 Other Celebrities Who’ve Been Kicked Off A Flight appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Being a celebrity definitely has its perks. You get to work long hours and have a camera shoved in your face pretty much everywhere you go. And if you’re an especially well-known celebrity, you might be lucky enough to have a crazy person try to insert themselves into your life and mail you crazy packages. They are truly blessed.

However, a big drawback to being famous is that you can’t always do only what you want all of the time. Like on flights. They expect you to follow the rules to which every other passenger must adhere. If you don’t, you get kicked off the flight like some kind of minority. Total bullsh*t!

These six poor celebrities know these frustrations all too well.

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin was rudely interrupted by an American Airlines flight attendant who had the nerve to try to attend to the flight. Baldwin was caught up in a tense “Words with Friends” game at the time and simply could not put down his video game. After throwing a tantrum in the bathroom, he was removed from the flight, causing major delays for the other passengers. The nerve of some people. What’s really important here is that Alec Baldwin did not suffer an embarrassing “Words with Friends” defeat at the hands of Steve Martin.

Leisha Hailey

The L Word actress was kicked off a Southwest flight when other travelers complained about her kissing her girlfriend. Hailey claims she was discriminated against because she was kissing a member of the same sex. But Southwest maintains the decision was made because the kissing had gotten to be excessive. It’s hard to choose a side on this. I’m going to need to review the tape in private for about ten minutes before I can make my ruling.

You know your balls taste great when an ice cream is named in their honor. Congratulations, Alec Baldwin! That’s right. Ice cream makers Ben & Jerry have concocted “Schweddy Balls,” a new flavor based off Baldwin’s famous NPR-skewering Saturday Night Live skit.

Ben & Jerry’s spokesman Sean Greenwood says, “We’ve always been a company that has had a sense of humor.” Sometimes, he said, they spend time discussing serious business and other times “we just do fun.” And what’s more fun than double entendre?

Schweddy Balls will be available for a limited time in about 30 percent of stores that carry Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. In honor of the new flavor, here are seven movie and TV inspired flavors that Ben & Jerry’s should totally make.

Truffle Shuffle

Get that gut jiggling in no time! Vanilla ice cream loaded with chunks of chocolate truffles and broken bits of Baby Ruth. You’ll have no trouble gaining access to the gate, but you might have some trouble fitting through it!

Everybody Loves Rum Raisin

This Italian-inspired gelato will take you home again. This creamy dessert boasts succulent rum-soaked raisins, so don’t plan on driving home from the scoop shop! Unless your brother is a cop.

The Human Centipede’s Fudge Tunnel

Wait until you wrap your lips around this Core Concoction. Based upon the hit film The Human Centipede, it’s three layers of vanilla, strawberry, and Asian green tea surrounding a column of dark German fudge. Perfect to share with friends!! You won’t be able to keep your mouth off of it.

Game Of Cones

Winter is coming. And it’s going to be delicious! This cold strawberry-swirled pint is packed with chocolate-coated waffle cone. Everyone is losing their heads about it.

Rocky Road Trip: Beer Pong

It’s time to hit the road to Flavor Country. This vanilla malt is overflowing with peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate mice. Grab your brosefs and pledge that you love it. Proceeds from all sales go to paying DJ Qualls’ rent.

Total Reese’s-Call

There’s no way you can forget how delicious this recipe tastes. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces blended together in red cocoa ice cream will simply take your breath away. Made exclusively with cream from three-uddered cows, your eyes will bug out for this taste of the future!!

Kramer vs. Krispy Kremer

Life is so full of tough choices. But there should be no difficulty picking your favorite ice cream. This glazed donut flavored treat is a no brainer. Heaping with generous amounts of rainbow and chocolate sprinkles, will it be your favorite? You be the judge!!

Lorne Michaels Sees More ’30 Rock’ With Or Without Alec Baldwin http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/lorne-michaels-sees-more-30-rock-with-or-without-alec-baldwin/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/lorne-michaels-sees-more-30-rock-with-or-without-alec-baldwin/#comments Mon, 01 Aug 2011 22:37:35 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=222962 The show must go on, even if Jack leaves.

The post Lorne Michaels Sees More ’30 Rock’ With Or Without Alec Baldwin appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Lorne Michaels was on the Television Critics Association panel for the new NBC comedy Up All Night. After the panel when the press gaggled around him, he spoke about his thoughts and hopes for 30 Rock. With contracts coming up at the end of season six, and stars like Alec Baldwin threatening retirement, Michaels still sees 30 rockin’ along.

“Listen, you can’t imagine doing the show without Alec but I couldn’t imagine doing the show without Chevy either and we’re still on the air,” Michaels said, invoking Chase’s departure from SNL. “I would hope that we would never have to go on without him but we’re going to keep doing the show.”

Tina Fey is at home this summer expecting a baby. Then she’s ready to go back to work too. “Right now she’s having a baby but I know that she’s completely committed to the show, as are a lot of people who work there. Alec is a huge part of it. It’s a great group. I think it still has a lot of vitality and life in it. We’re all pretty much determined to keep it going, and I’m hopeful.”

Michaels also spoke out about 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan’s controversial anti-gay rant and how it might affect his return to the show. “We haven’t started yet but obviously everyone has been talking. I think he totally regretted it, he apologized for it. I think it was a thoughtless thing to say but it was the middle of a concert and he was trying to be provocative I think. It just blew up and I think he confronted it and dealt with it. I know what kind of man he is and he’s not a hateful person in any way, shape or form. What he said was stupid and there’s no justification for it, I’m just saying I don’t think it came from any real thought really.”

The subsequent Tracy Morgan controversy, about a routine on the mentally challenged, made less waves. “I think that’s from his act from 15 years ago. It was in his HBO special. When you scrutinize anybody’s comedy, it’s not the criteria you should really judge it by. He’s not being taught in schools.”

Midnight in Paris has just hit theaters, so, naturally, it’s time to announce the cast of the next Woody Allen film, the perplexingly-titled The Bop Decameron, which is presumably a study of bops and decamerons, though details are sketchy. The only description Allen himself has called it a “broad comedy,” so it’s anyone’s guess as to the plot of the film.

While we might not have the foggiest notion of what The Bop Decameron is about, we do know who will be in it. Alec Baldwin had already been cast, and an announcement today indicates that Woody is going back to his stable of regulars, including the likes of himself, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. Co-stars include Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi.

The film shoots in Rome next month. How do you say “nebbish” in Italian? Oh. That’s right. Meschino.

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Yes, Alec Baldwin has brought his dry wit and devastating handsomeness to Twitter. You can find him here, and just try to remain calm.

Now that you’ve collected yourself, let’s get to the important part: Below you can see the first image from the upcoming Rock of Ages, which features the aforementioned Baldwin, Russell Brand, and a giant lollipop. I don’t really know what to say about this – after months of making fun of Rock of Ages, this photo of Baldwin is actually pretty funny. See for yourself below.

Alec Baldwin To Toss The Old Pigskin Around http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alec-baldwin-to-toss-the-old-pigskin-around/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alec-baldwin-to-toss-the-old-pigskin-around/#comments Fri, 20 May 2011 16:45:23 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=212999 Will he yell at Mark Wahlberg in a thick Boston accent?

The post Alec Baldwin To Toss The Old Pigskin Around appeared first on Screen Junkies.

UPDATE Buried in the bowels of article this comes from is the additional information that the movie isn’t called Turkey Bowl anymore, because that’s bee taken by some other movie. So the working title is Three Mississippi instead. Go long!

When I first heard the news that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg were reuniting from The Other Guys to play opposing amateur football coaches in Turkey Bowl, I was mildly excited. Now my mild excitement continues, with the news that Wahlberg’s The Departed compatriot Alec Baldwin has signed on to play Wahlberg’s father.

This goes along with the idea that maybe-director (he’s not attached of yet, but he’s “reserve[d] that right”) Adam McKay wants Turkey Bowl stuffed with celebrity cameos. He also is reportedly trying to get Jeremy Renner and Rob Riggle, with presumably many others as well. Here’s an incredibly long and in-depth plot synopsis, straight from McKay’s mouth:

“”It’s about these two rival families from — we’re thinking Philadelphia but we need to check in with Wahlberg and Ferrell and see what kind of accents they want to do. Alec Baldwin is the patriarch of one of the families, and Wahlberg is his son. He saw the Kennedys playing football on their front lawn at Thanksgiving, and boom, that’s it: “Anything the Kennedys do, we’re doing.” His family starts playing the other family that lives across the park from them. Over the years, Baldwin’s family hasn’t done too well — they own a crappy little bar in town — while the other family, which Will’s character eventually becomes the patriarch of, becomes really successful. The game gets nastier and nastier as the years go on, and Ferrell’s family starts just destroying the other family. After a massive heart attack, Baldwin’s character’s dying wish is that his estranged son, Mark, take over the game and finally win one. So Wahlberg has to put this ramshackle, convict, gambling-addict family back together again and beat the richies. The whole spirit of it is that it’s just a giant, fun ensemble comedy. We want to populate it with people we love. There’s a funny subplot with Rob Riggle where he’s a gay cousin that Wahlberg’s family sort of turned their backs on but he played football at Fresno State and they need him. We’re going to try to get Jeremy Renner to play an ex-con. The idea is to bring in, like, 15 people that we love in and just do a big, funny holiday movie.”

Well jeez, Mr. McKay, do we even have to see the movie now? Better be some good cameos, that’s all I’m saying. (Entertainment Weekly)

UPDATE: In sad news for Alec Baldwin, it turns out that he is doing Rock of Ages after all, according to Deadline. Below is the original article, which you can now make fun of for being inaccurate in retrospect.

Adam Shankman, director of Rock of Ages, has been shamelessly bilking Hollywood star after Hollywood star into appearing in his movie. Now, finally, it appears that at least one person has broken free of his seductive grasp – star of”30 Rock” and those ads for Hulu, Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin has dropped out after being confirmed by Shankman back in March. He was supposed to play “Dennis Dupree, the owner of the Bourbon Room, the Sunset Boulevard nightclub at the center of the movie.” I guess now they’ll have to get Stephen Baldwin to do it instead?

Some of the other actors not as savvy as Alec Baldwin include Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, and Mary J. Blige. Well, you know what they say – never give a sucker an eve break or smarten up a chump. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Woody Allen has been struggling to find a proper surrogate for years now. Jason Biggs, Josh Brolin, and even Will Ferrell have all tried, only to miss the mark in one way or another. And it looks like Woody agrees, since he recently told USA Today that he’s casting himself in his latest movie. No title or plot yet, except the hint that the rumored title The Wrong Picture is, well, wrong.

This is the same movie that also stars Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, and Roberto Benigni, so the chance of laffs are high, I’d say. For those keeping track, this will be Woody Allen‘s first appearance on camera since 2006′s Scoop, which I, and I alone, liked.

The post Gif Recap: ’30 Rock’ – Respawn appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: our Gif Recap of last night’s episode of “30 Rock,” which marked the end of the fifth season. All things considered, I think they went out on a high note.

Liz Lemon is visiting Dr. Spaceman to treat some stress-related cold sores. He assures her that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about (he gets them from hookers all the time) and offers her some R&R (Rum and Ritalin) for the stress. However, Liz only wants to treat the cold sores. She feels her stress is under control now that she’s booked a house in the Hamptons for the summe break.

Meanwhile, the others are making their summer plans. Jack is trying to figure out what to do with himself now that his wife has been kidnapped by North Koreans, the writers are engaged in a final melee battle on their PlayStation, and Jenna is about to land a big advertising deal with the Wool Council, who she impressed with a previous performance at the Wool Bowl.

Liz pays a fine she owes to the city for a hate crime she committed against a Jewish tree, and then heads for the Hamptons. Once there, all is going according to plan, until Tracy shows up and reveals that he’s purchased the homes around Liz’s guest house and is treating it like his own private playground.

Tired from a long day of golf, Tracy decides to take a nap on Liz’s porch. He has to rest up for his big night of firing guns into the air. Before he nods off, he mentions that he and Liz will be seeing each other a lot over the summer. He also warns her that he tends to scream in his sleep, but that she should not wake him no matter what, or he will attack.

Back in New York, Jenna is about to finalize her deal with the Wool Council, when the subject of her personal life brings the meeting to a halt. They are concerned that her cross-dressing boyfriend will sully wool’s conservative image. But after a stirring song, the head of the council agrees to give Paul a chance, and sets up a double date with Jenna.

Meanwhile, Jack is copping with the loss of his wife by replacing her with Kenneth. What starts as a simple act of kindness turns into an obsession when Jack forces him, the hapless page, to come over for dinner night after night. Jack’s assistant, Jonathan, ends up getting stuck with Kenneth’s duties, and is forced to call in his family for help.

Later, Liz confronts Tracy about his behavior, and tells him that she doesn’t want him to ruin her relaxing summer. But when Tracy threatens to cause trouble on set next season, Liz is forced to back down.

Jenna and Paul are hosting the president of the Wool Council and his wife. Although it is hard for Paul to hide who he is, the meal is going well. But when Jenna’s “sitter” shows up (a dwarf the couple pays to sit on them) he is forced to pretend that sexual fetishes disgust him.

Kenneth is having problems of his own, as Jack is now forcing him to completely take on the role of his missing wife.

After being forced to sleep over, Kenneth draws the line, and while impersonating Jack’s wife, tells him to stop feeling sorry for himself and move on. The speech snaps Jack back to reality, and Kenneth is free to go.

After the dinner with the Wool Council president, Jenna and Paul decide that they must be true to themselves. At the photo shoot, they publicly make out while dressed in drag, Wool Council be damned.

After much deliberation, Liz has a revelation, and decides not to pay her ticket for the hate crime, which results in mandatory community service. She finds the work relaxing, and is even picking up Spanish from some of her fellow trash pickers. Jack happens upon her in the park, just as Jenna and Paul are out for a walk. Tracy, who hit a golf ball onto the back of a truck and refuses to take a mulligan, is also passing through the park as he plays his way back to the Hamptons.

The group stops to admire Jack’s baby, while Kenneth watches from afar via telescope. In a “Lost”-like ending, he screams to an unseen “Jacob” that he “needs more time.” With that, the story ends, to be continued in season six.

What did you think of the way things ended? Is the show still going strong, or has the quality started to drop off?

Bryan Cranston is blowing up faster and hotter than a meth lab explosion. He’s the bad guy in the Total Recall remake, he’s bringing his voice to Batman: Year One, and now he’s been cast in future SNL punchline Rock of Ages in the pivotal (how many pivots can one movie have?) role of “the mayor.” Cranston is joining a cast of names more famous and less talented than he is, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, and Paul Giamatti (OK, the “less talented” part doesn’t go for Giamatti).

More specifically, he’s husband to the Anita Bryant/Tipper Gore-type played by Catherine Zeta-Jones who wants to ban all rock and roll. Oh no! Will rock and roll be able to survive this cultural onslaught? How about rock or roll, separately? I think rock has a bit more vigor than roll does – I hope roll pulls through OK. I’m sure they’ll both be OK – this is America, after all.  (Deadline)

NBC apparently isn’t content to have “30 Rock” simply be a live-action cartoon – they want to turn it into a literal cartoon as well. And lucky you, you can watch it right here. This cartoon, which is the first in a planned series of three, features Alex Baldwin as the Bugs Bunny to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’ Elmer Fudd.

An animated version of”30 Rock” is making me wonder about other TV possibilities – a cartoon short based on”Boardwalk Empire,” perhaps. Or maybe a live-action “Archer.” These are all great ideas, I hope I get paid when they happen. (Vulture)

Alec Baldwin may be nearing the end of his”30 Rock” run, so he’s going for the legacy roles. Step 1: Get in a Woody Allen movie. It doesn’t matter which one. They’re all pretty much the same.

Baldwin already knocked out step 1 in 1990′s Alice, so he’s on to step 2. Step 2: If you run out of real movies to act in, get in another Woody Allen movie. It doesn’t matter which one. They’re all pretty much the same.

And that’s where we find ourselves today. Baldwin has attached himself to Allen’s next untitled film, which is rumored to star The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg. Producers – plan the hoodie budget line item accordingly.

Allen has forgone shooting in NYC in his latest pictures not just due to monetary concerns, but also because he has found that the change in scenery has nurtured his creative process. But apparently not enough to stop casting Scarlett Johansson in his movies. (Deadline)

UPDATE: Oh, good. Baldwin was misinformed and they do plan to run”30 Rock” into the ground after all. Phew.

Alec Baldwin dropped a bomb last night that is sure to upset “30 Rock” fans. His brother Stephen was an excellent dancer back in high school. Oh yeah, also next season of “30 Rock” will be the show’s last.

“I will tell you one thing,” he told Vulture. “And that is our show next year is our last year of the show. Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She’s going to be the next Elaine May. She’ll be great.”

If true, that’s sad to hear. You guys go cry and work on your Tracy Jordan requiems while I go figure out just who the hell Elaine May was.

Your little sister might be excited that Diego Gonzalez Boneta (“Pretty Little Liars,” “90210“) will officially star in Rock of Ages, the Broadway-musical-to-movie based on 80s songs you’re really sick of hearing at karaoke. The cast includes folks you know, like Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Alec Baldwin, and now, one guy you probably didn’t know existed. Well, he does.

Boneta plays a young, wide-eyed traveler to Los Angeles named Drew who dreams of “making it” as a rock star. Yeah, we’re gonna make it. Make our dreams come true in LA. Yeah. Of course, Drew becomes a bus boy, which seems like less of a “dream” and more of a sad reality. Hopefully that’s addressed with the inclusion of the beloved Foreigner b-side “Seems Like Less of a Dream, More of a Sad Reality (Megan’s Song).”

Russell Brand, who is in every other movie these days, has also officially joined the cast. So does that mean James Franco will be wedged in there somehow too? Don’t stop believin’, you guys.

Adam Shankman is directing Rock of Ages for New Line. (Deadline)

Looks like Hollywood’s most renowned supporting actors are teaming up for a film of their own. Marisa Tomei, Thomas Haden Church, Allison Janney, and Alec Baldwin have all signed on for Lucky Them. Who will step up?!!

Co-written by the awesomely-named Huck Botko and the normally-named Emily Wachtel, the story follows a rock journalist assigned to track down her ex-boyfriend. Botko is also on directing duties and Joanne Woodward is attached to executive produce in lieu on Paul Newman. Botko’s previous works The Last Exorcism and The Virginity Hit didn’t really catch on with audiences. I guess that’s why Kate Hudson isn’t attached to this. It’s clearly a Kate Hudson plot, yet no Kate Hudson. (Variety)

Paramount thought they could make a Chris Pine-starring Jack Ryan film before Star Trek 2. They thought wrong.

The studio had a plan to reboot Tom Clancy hero Jack Ryan in an origin story film helmed by Jack Bender (“Lost”), with Pine as the lead, a part that’s been portrayed by Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin – good company. Rather than adapt one of Clancy’s many novels, the studio wants someone to rewrite a spec screenplay that had nothing to do with Jack Ryan. The new plot involves young Jack Ryan escaping a deadly helicopter crash. Sounds helicopter-y, and by working the name “Jack Ryan” in there, serious cashola can be acquired by audiences who hate new things.

Many writers are being interviewed, and many more have already banged the script and were kicked out of script’s bed the next morning. Steve Zaillian (Clear and Present Danger) made a deal to do the job last month, but he backed out. Unfortunately for lovers of helicopter destruction cinema, without a solid script, production won’t move forward.

So even though Paramount was trying hard to get this project off the ground before Pine starred as Captain Kirk in the next Star Trek, it looks like the Enterprise is traveling a whole lo faster than the Red October, even though J.J. Abrams hasn’t officially signed on to direct the sequel yet. Paramount hopes that little detail won’t stop them from shooting this Fall and hitting their June 29, 2012 release date.

Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are are working on the Star Trek 2 script. (Deadline)

Future Janis Joplin dress-up party attendee Amy Adams recently got an Academy Award nomination for her uncharacteristically serious role in The Fighter, and now rumor has it that she’s following it up in the most logical way possible: A musical comedy with Tom Cruise. Adam Shankman, the movie’s director, is reportedly courting Adams for the part he originally offered to Anne Hathaway, which she had to decline because of her duties as Catwoman. Here’s some info on the part:

“She would play an uptight journalist who intends to eviscerate Stacee Jax with an expose. A seduction ensues instead, and after they duet to the Foreigner song I Want To Know What Love Is, nature takes its course.”

If this solidifies, Adams would be co-starring with Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, and Russell Brand. So if you like the idea of seeing those people singing 80s pop tunes, get excited. (via Deadline)

Warner Bros and New Line decided on release dates for their two upcoming tentpole films. So, no, they’re not just gonna sit on an executive’s shelf as multi-million dollar dust catchers. They’re coming to theaters.

Let’s start with Rock of Ages. The cliche karaoke soundtrack turned Broadway musical turned feature film directed by Adam Shankman hits theaters June 1, 2012. Phew. For a moment there, I stopped believin’. Rock of Ages stars Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Julianne “I’m From ‘Dancing With The Stars’ ” Hough and Alec Baldwin.

Meanwhile, Jack The Giant Killer, the Bryan Singer helmed fairy tale adaptation, shimmies down the beanstalk on June 15, 2012. It’s just got to steal a bunch of giant treasure first. Jack The Giant Killer stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregorStanley Tucci and Ian McShane. McAwesome cast. (TheWrap)

Men In Black III has suffered it’s first casualty. The topsy-turvy production schedule has caused Manny from Quiet On The Chef Gourmet Catering to leave the project. He’s reportedly upset to have to jump ship but he’s got to pay his bills. Alec Baldwin is also leaving.

Baldwin had signed on to play the MiB boss back in 1969 but now schedule conflicts will prevent him from playing the straight man opposite coffee-drinking worms. “I’m not doing that. I’m out of it; the schedule didn’t work out,” he said.

I’m sure Stephen Baldwin is available though. That would be good too, right everyone? Guys? You want Stephen? Stephen Baldwin? He’s available. Sorry Stephen. Maybe next time. (Vulture)
