Alec Baldwin joins Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages

03.07.2011

Alec Baldwin has gone on record saying that he considers his film career a "failure." After watching PEARL HARBOR one might agree, but looking at his entire catalog, he's being a little bit hard on himself.

The actor is reportedly leaving 30 Rock once his contract expires this year, and has talked about running for political office, but before any of that, he's taking another stab at film in Adam Shankman's ROCK OF AGES.

Baldwin will play ex-rocker and current club owner Dennis Dupree, and joins Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Julianna Hough in the film. The club is the Bourbon Room, and it's central to the plot of the film which has Sherrie (Hough) working there as a waitress while trying to make it big in Hollywood.

Shooting starts in May, and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing Baldwin in full '80s regalia. And vote Baldwin for Senate in '12.

Now I know where all the idiots who watch 30 Rock come from. Absolutely the most boring show on TV. Good thing it's on NBC or it would have been shit canned years ago. I love Alec, but please God keep his retarded ass out of office. We have enough idiots screwing this country up as it is.

BOOM! WINNING! DUH!

Alec thinks his film career is a failure? That has to be a real slap in the face to all the other Baldwin brothers.

Way too hard on himself

He steals the show any given opportunity. Even loved him in The Departed, which was kind of a smaller role for him

Baldwin is too hard on himself. His resume includes The Hunt for Red October, Beetlejuice, The Shadow, not a failure in my book. I'm sure he's gonna be awesome in this movie.

I hope he doesn't quit 30 Rock. He's the highlight of the show.

I'm always down for all things Cruise but I would feel much safer having seen some set pics. They better make his wig realistic is all I'm saying. All I have to say about Mr. Baldwins career is....The Edge. Such a badass movie.

Shank is the Man

Adam Shankman has made most material less shit than it sounds. Vin Diesel's Pacifier wasn't in the Tooth Fairy area, A Walk to Remember was a decent tearjerker. But seriously, how cool was Hairspray ? If Rock of Ages can be a new version of Hairspray but with more Rock, it will be shit. But it will be enjoyable ! Go Baldwin !

He is the best part about 30 Rock, I'm going to miss him.

Oh and this movie sounds like it blows.

I don't agree his career is a failure, but I understand why he might believe it is. He's been responsible for some truly memorable roles. But around the mid-'90s he put out some real shit along with a few reasonably good movies. So he turned down the Jack Ryan role that could've spearheaded his super-stardom. But he made up for it through his SNL appearances that radically remade him as a comic personality. The only way they could make up for him on 30 Rock is if they get somebody like

The only way they could make up for him on 30 Rock is if they get somebody like Christopher Walken to fill the void. Then again, they're doing okay without Tracy Morgan. So who knows.

Great casting. Alec Baldwin makes everything and anything better.

It sucks that he is leaving 30 Rock this year when the season is over. I don't think they should try to replace him because even though the show won't be as great without him, the show will still be good because of all of the other characters on the show that are just as funny and entertaining.

I fucking hate the sound of this movie. I like Cruise and Baldwin as much as the next guy but this just sounds like a movie version of Glee from the genius creator of such classics like Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Pacifier, and The Wedding Planner! Fuck that.
