Where Have You Gone, Alec Baldwin?


For all the news of an economic turnaround, it remains a career recession for actor Alec Baldwin. The paparazzi-pummeling star apparently can't hire anyone to update his official Web site and then there's this telling tale from a recent issue of W magazine (courtesy of The Week):

When a conservative recently produced a deck of "weasels" playing cards, featuring anti-war celebrities, Baldwin was not included. "I was astounded," [he says]. I guess if you wait around long enough, people forget how much they hate you."

NEXT: Geoffrey is a Giraffe...

  1. I’m working on my own list for a deck of cards: Cheney, Rummy, Wolfowitz, Perle, Kristol, Ledeen, Boot, ad nauseam.

  2. What, all jokers? 🙂

  3. I stopped paying attention to Baldwin when he moved to France in 2000.

  4. You’d think having the chance to sleep with Kim Basinger would be enough joy for one lifetime. What a bozo.

  5. Don’t worry Alec. I haven’t forgotten.

  6. I don’t know about updates, but I think he needs a new website designer. Damn that thing loads slow, and that menu at the top right, I have to turn my head clockwise 90 degrees to read it. It’s about the only thing about the man that tilts to the right…

  7. Further proof that there is wisdom to be found within the Simpsons. Remember when Lisa and Paul Anka sang the song “Just Don’t Look”? Ignore anoying celebs and they just go away.

  8. In his prime, Alec actually had a couple of decent roles in films. What I can’t figure out is why in the world are his no-talent brothers famous.

  9. Last time I checked, Mr. Baldwin was in a major motion picture (the new Mike Myers Cat in the Hat movie) and spent the last decade banging Kim Bassinger. I should be so annoying.

  10. This isn’t the first time his site hasn’t been updated for a while. A year or two ago there was a notice on FreeRepublic that his message board was back up after a long absence. So, I don’t think it’s too significant.

  11. Ah, where would we be without the priveleged class to whine about how priveleged we all are? I can’t believe *that* much attention has been paid to the opinions of actors waxing moronic on topics from Bush to Baghdad. Lest we forget, these people majored in theater.

    I like especially that he’s whining about not being noticed for whining. Welcome to the club, old man.

  12. That was very low and mean of George Clooney to say what he said about Charlton Heston — out loud, in public, on stage.

    Very Baldfaced.

    (Charlton Heston has always been my greatest hero.)

    Clooney can’t hold a candle.

  13. But isn’t Alec just narrating Cat like he did Royal Tenenbaums? He seems to have a bit role in the new Stiller flick. Still, he’s not exactly over the title anymore.
