Alec Baldwin has been added to the Brinker International Forum line-up at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, injecting another dose of comedy to the spring series that already includes the three funniest guys on ABC's Modern Family.
Baldwin, famously handsome and riotously funny—as his many stints on Saturday Night Live and his role as NBC executive Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock have more than proven—will be at the Winspear Opera House on March 2, 2012.
Perhaps it will alleviate some of those who were miffed when the biggest name on Brinker's schedule this season, Jamie Foxx, rescheduled once and then canceled, last minute.
Baldwin's film bio is extensive (here's his imdb profile), and he has appeared on Broadway four times, most recently in 2004 in a revival of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's Twentieth Century. His first role on the Great White Way was in Joe Orton's Loot in 1986, and he played Stanley Kowalski to Jessica Lange's Blanche in a 1992 revival of A Streetcar Named Desire.
And of course, Baldwin made headlines late last year for an airplane incident, which he promptly and hilariously made fun of on SNL's Weekend Update.
BTW, 30 Rock finally returns tonight.
Ticket prices and on-sale dates have not been announced yet. We'll keep you posted.
Just to remind you how funny the man is, here's a clip from one of our favorite scenes from 30 Rock:
