First, sympathies were rolled out after the first pictures of a visibly distraught Alec Baldwin after the shocking news of the shooting at a movie set surfaced. But somehow, a large number of online users have retracted their sympathies, citing the antecedents of the American actor and comedian. In the past month, the Boss Baby star has found it hard to believe that he is responsible for the death of a crew member, Halyna Hutchin, a cinematographer. It must have left him devastated, but for Trump’s supporters, there is no clue of pity for the man who made a mockery of President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. So where is Alec Baldwin right now after all these? Is he going to be charged? How is his family holding up? These questions are what fans need answers to.
Maybe Baldwin’s bio should read as a retired actor if he had followed his heart back in 2012. He said he planned to retire, at the wrap party of 30 Rock. But his relentless effort to show the world that there is another side to him aside from his role in 30 Rock, prevailed. This was the same series that made him this successful. But, Baldwin is an Oliver Twist and it led him to where he wouldn’t have envisaged. So, after this accidental shooting, where is Alec Baldwin right now? What is he up to? Find out in this article.
Who is Alec Baldwin?
Alec Baldwin is the eldest of six children. He was born on April 3, 1958, in Amityville, New York. He was, however, raised in the Nassau Shores neighborhood alongside his siblings. Born to a family of eight, Baldwin must have had a challenging time growing up. His mother, Carol Newcomb, married a high school history teacher Alexander Rae Baldwin Jr. His siblings were raised as Roman Catholics. Alec had his education at the Alfred G. Berner High School playing football under Bob Reifsnyder. He would go on to attend George Washington University. One significant moment while growing up was him getting a personal letter from the then president Richard Nixon after he lost an election for the student body president of the university.
After making his debut in the NBC daytime soap opera The Doctors in 1980, Baldwin would become a prominent face in the movie industry, winning several awards along the way. In addition, he has featured in TV shows like Cutter to Houston, Knots Landing, Thomas, and Friends, among many others. Interestingly, he appeared in two episodes of the hugely successful series Friends, playing the love interest of Phoebe.
For his role as one of the producers and actors of the NBC hit sitcom 30 Rock, Baldwin won awards. He won seven Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and three Emmy Awards. All in all, Baldwin has received seven Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
He is Always At The Center of Controversies
As interesting as his personality is, Alec cannot escape being at the center of a controversy. It is almost becoming second nature. In 2011, an airline kicked Baldwin out off a plane after refusing to keep his “electronic device” aside. It even gets ridiculous when you find out it was because he couldn’t stop playing Words With Friends for a couple of minutes. He later apologized after the incident.
In 2013, MNSBC was forced to relieve him of his show after he allegedly screamed gay slurs at a photographer. As a result, he was arrested and pleaded guilty to harassment. In addition, the comedian agreed to take anger management courses after police arrested him over a fight in the parking lot.
On social media, Baldwin is explosive, often seen to rain cuss words on people who react to his Instagram posts. His frustration has made him delete his Twitter accounts and reinstall them on many occasions.

Baldwin was rehearsing a gunfight scene when he shot a gun that he was told had no live round in it. Unfortunately, the bullet hit the cinematographer Halyna Hutchin and injured Director Joel Souza.

The assistant director Dave Halls and rookie armorer Hannah Guiterrez Reed told Baldwin that the gun was safe to handle.
