Baldwin is an Academy Award-nominated actor who has won multiple Primetime Emmys and Golden Globes for his television work on NBC's 30 Rock as well as his biting, ongoing portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live.

The actor started his career the early 80s, with television appearances like his recurring role as Joshua Rush in the nighttime soap Knots Landing. 

It wasn't until 1988 when Alec became a bona fide Hollywood leading man, with memorable appearances in FOUR acclaimed films: We're Having A Baby, Beetlejuice, Working Girl and Married To The Mob.

And while he delivered well-received supporting turns in three of those films, his lead role opposite Geena Davis and Michael Keaton in the now-classic Tim Burton opus Beetlejuice is the one that put Baldwin on the map in a big way, which helped him later score top billing in films like The Hunt for Red October, Prelude To A Kiss and Malice.

Baldwin went on to score an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actor in 2003 for The Cooler, and has gone on to further memorable turns in films like Along Came Polly, The Departed, It's Complicated and many others.

Some of Alec's most recent film endeavors have been his portrayal of Alan Hunley in the last two Mission: Impossible films, as well as the lead voice in the animated Boss Baby, which is soon to spawn a sequel.
