I found this via On Location Vacations: Alec Baldwin will be performing in my hometown of Buffalo tonight, reading the Mamet play “Speed the Plow” at Rockwell Hall to help raise money for a local theater company. Mr. Baldwin, who is, by many many accounts, an asshole, handed Buffalo a huge back-handed compliment while trying to say that it deserved an off-Broadway theater. “I mean, Buffalo’s a big town. It’s not, you know, Utica.” Which naturally caused Utica to get defensive and brag about its newly-renovated theater.
I once stood next to Alec Baldwin for a few minutes, patiently waiting to hand him a business card, while he was chatting with fans. He managed not to be an asshole for those few minutes, although he was extremely smarmy. He was cooing over a baby, and was just being a little too, I don’t know, intense and deliberate about it. Public image rehab, perhaps, for the message he left his daughter?
