Alec Baldwin To Host New Talk Show On ABC
The incredibly versatile actor, host, and celebrated Trump impressionist Alec Baldwin is expanding his slate of projects with a new project announced today. Baldwin will host a new talk show called Sundays with Alec Baldwin this spring on ABC.
The network has ordered eight episodes of the new show, with a sneak peek set to air this Sunday after the Academy Awards.
Baldwin will interview guests on the show, including comedian Jerry Seinfeld and Saturday Night Live breakout star Kate McKinnon.
In 2013, Baldwin hosted a similar program on MSNBC titled Up Late with Alec Baldwin but it was canceled after only five episodes.
The show was originally suspended due to reports that the Emmy-winner had used a homophobic slur while speaking with reporters.
Baldwin denied the allegations but issued an apology nonetheless; regardless, after the two-week suspension was over, the network made the decision to end the show.
After a long career as a film actor, Baldwin has spent more time in recent years with television projects, though he's still acting in film, as well.
The actor won three Emmy awards for his role as Jack Donaghy opposite Tina Fey during a seven-year run on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock .
Baldwin became a recurring presence on Saturday Night Live during the 2016 presidential campaign as Donald Trump and has continued to this day, winning another Emmy for his performance.
ABC and Baldwin already have a working relationship, as the actor began hosting a revival of the classic game show Match Game in 2016.
After the death of famed presenter Robert Osborne in 2017, Baldwin took over his role as the host of TCM's The Essentials.
Baldwin appeared in 2015's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation on the big screen and will reprise his role in this summer's Mission: Impossible - Fallout .
You can catch a sneak peek of Sundays with Alec Baldwin this Sunday, March 4 immediately following the Oscars on ABC.
