Alec Baldwin plays network executive "Jack Donaghy" on the three-time Emmy Award-winning 30 ROCK, a workplace comedy where the workplace exists behind the scenes of a live variety show.
Winner of two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, four SAG Awards and a Television Critics Association Award for his role, Baldwin has been heralded by Entertainment Weekly as a "comic genius" for his hilarious turn on "30 Rock." He is one of Hollywood's most charismatic and prolific actors -- both on stage and in film. Baldwin garnered raves for his performance in Martin Scorsese's "The Departed" and a 2004 Academy Award nomination for his role in "The Cooler" opposite William H. Macy. Other film credits include "The Good Shepherd" directed by Robert DeNiro, "Lymelife," "The Hunt for Red October," "Miami Blues," "Prelude to a Kiss," "Malice," "The Shadow," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "Heaven's Prisoners," "Ghosts of Mississippi," "The Edge," "Pearl Harbor" and "The Cat in the Hat." He will next star in "It's Complicated," opposite Meryl Streep and Steve Martin.
In addition to his many dramatic credits, Baldwin has proven to be an adept and perennial host of "Saturday Night Live" (with 14 hosting appearances to his credit) and was lauded as the "funniest person on TV" in 2006 by the Chicago Sun-Times. Baldwin's production company, El Dorado Pictures, has co-produced the Emmy-nominated miniseries "Nuremberg" and the feature film "State and Main."
Among his many stage credits, Baldwin won acclaim and a Tony nomination for his work opposite Jessica Lange in "A Streetcar Named Desire," which also garnered him an Emmy nomination for the television adaptation.
