I’ve enjoyed all the guests who have appeared on my podcast, Maltin on Movies, but Alec Baldwin is in a class by himself: a talented actor and star who is as much a film geek as anyone I’ve ever met. I have interviewed him a number of times over the years but somehow never touched on this facet of his personality; we were too busy promoting one of his new movies. I learned about his love of cinema when he joined TCM and engaged in lively and incisive conversations with Robert Osborne on The Essentials.
Since then, I’ve enjoyed listening to his wonderful podcast Here’s the Thing, where he interviews actors, writers, directors, journalists, and authors.
This week I turned the tables as Alec agreed to be my guest for an hour of movie talk. What a treat to talk to someone who loves what he does, the people he gets to work with, and the medium of film itself. (He also does some pretty cool impressions.)
But don’t take my word for it. Listen to our chat by clicking HERE.
