Alec Baldwin ‘Shoves’ Photographer

Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin allegedly "pushed and shoved" a photographer yesterday morning.

The 30 Rock star was leaving the New York City Marriage License Bureau with fiancee Hilaria Thomas when he got into an altercation with paparazzo Marcus Santos.

"He was looking mad. He said, 'Step back, step back.' I said, 'We're moving back,'" Marcus told The New York Daily News. According to the publication, Alec grabbed a second photographer, prompting Marcus to tell him to back off. "I said, 'Don't touch him.' I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming. He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me - one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way," Marcus added.

"He was like crazy, you know? There was an eruption of mad. ... You're going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?" added fellow photographer Goran Veljic.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Weddings, Rumors

Hilaria Thomas and Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin is set to marry fiancee Hilaria Thomas at the the of the month.

The 30 Rock actor will tie the knot with the Spanish-born yoga instructor at New York's Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in a Catholic ceremony on June 30.

The church is where Francis Ford Coppola filmed the famous baptism scene in The Godfather, in which Al Pacino's renunciation of Satan was intercut with the massacre of the Corleone family's enemies. Martin Scorsese also used the church's walled graveyard for a scene in Mean Streets as well as a location in Gangs of New York.

Last month, it was claimed Alec, 54, and 28-year-old Hilaria - who have been dating for almost a year - would elope following the Cannes Film Festival.

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas in CannesAlec Baldwin is planning to elope with fiancée Hilaria Thomas.

The 30 Rock star is currently shooting a documentary in Cannes, France, but friends of the couple believe they are hoping to tie the knot after the film festival closes on Sunday.

"They've been telling people they'll be spending time in Europe, and there's speculation they're going to get married," a source told Page Six.

Alec proposed to Hilaria - who was born on the Spanish island of Mallorca and grew up in Spain and the US - last month, after almost a year of dating.

Alec - who has a 16-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger - recently revealed he was considering having children with Hilaria: "Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great, that would be heaven, that would be fantastic. As my friend said to me, 'When you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you're older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp."

Alec Baldwin Wants Circus Boycott

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Charity, Videos

Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin is urging Americans to boycott circuses because of the way they treat elephants.

The 30 Rock actor has posted a four-minute video on YouTube which alleges the Ringling Bros. company, as well as many others, mistreat the animals and he wants people to stay away.

"Having worked with actors for many years, it's hard to believe that anyone would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into show business. But for the elephants for Ringling Bros. and other circuses, that's exactly what happens," he said in the video posted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

He cites PETA's multi-state investigation of Ringling Bros., which includes undercover video footage of animal handlers beating elephants with metal-tipped bull hooks "just moments before they walked onstage."

Alec Baldwin to Charlie Sheen: Beg For Your Job Back

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Television, Drugs, Meltdowns

Alec Baldwin as Jack DonaghyAlec Baldwin has now thrown his hat into Sheen's Korner, offering some advice to the former Two and a Half Men star.

In an online article, Baldwin cites his past experiences with executives as warrants to essentially throw in the towel in some instances and give up.

"You can't win. Really. You can't. When executives at studios and networks move up to the highest ranks, they are given a book. The book is called How to Handle Actors. And one principle held dear in that book is that no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit."

He goes on to point out to Sheen that his recent image (i.e. porn stars, substance abuse, tiger blood abuse, joining Twitter) cemented producers' plans to kick him off the show. Baldwin's sage advice? Gravel at their feet.
