Alec Baldwin : Jack Donaghy


Date Of Birth: April 3rd, 1958  Hometown: Long Island, New York

Alec Baldwin plays network executive Jack Donaghy on "30 Rock," a workplace comedy where the workplace exists behind-the-scenes of a live variety show. The show is told through the comedic voice of Emmy Award winner Tina Fey ("Liz Lemon") and features Baldwin as the brash new network executive who has turned the show upside down with his meddling ways.

The 2007 winner of the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a TV Musical or Comedy, the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series, and recently, the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy, Baldwin has been heralded by Entertainment Weekly as a “comic genius” for his hilarious turn on “30 Rock.” He was most recently nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. He is one of Hollywood's most charismatic and prolific actors – both on stage and in film. Baldwin garnered raves for his performance in Martin Scorsese's "The Departed" and a 2004 Academy Award nomination for his role in "The Cooler" opposite William H. Macy. In addition to his many dramatic credits, Baldwin has proven to be an adept and perennial host of "Saturday Night Live" (with 13 hosting appearances to his credit) and was lauded as the “funniest person on TV” in 2006 by the Chicago Sun-Times. Baldwin's production company, El Dorado Pictures, has co-produced the Emmy-nominated miniseries "Nuremberg" and the feature film "State and Main."

Among his many stage credits, Baldwin won acclaim and a Tony nomination for his work opposite Jessica Lange in "A Streetcar Named Desire" which also garnered him an Emmy nomination for the television adaptation. Film credits include: "The Departed" directed by Scorsese and "The Good Shepherd" directed by Robert DeNiro, "The Hunt for Red October," "Miami Blues," "Prelude To A Kiss," "Malice," "The Shadow," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "Heaven's Prisoners," "Ghosts of Mississippi," "The Edge," "Pearl Harbor" and "The Cat in the Hat."
