William Baldwin may be getting lots of TV work these days, but he’s still no Alec Baldwin—as proven by the fact that his Gossip Girl daughter, Blake Lively, will be playing Alec’s wife in an upcoming movie. “What really breaks my heart is that she’s doing a movie with my brother, Alec—and she’s playing my brother Alec’s wife,” he told E!. “I said to her, ‘I get to play your father and my brother Alec gets to play your husband? Where’s the justice in that?’ And she giggles and says, ‘That would make you Alec’s father-in-law.’” Don’t forget that Alec is the oldest of the four Baldwin boys, with William about 5 years younger than the 30 Rock star.
“Oh great, that’s exactly what my ego needed,” he laughed. “You put grandpa out to pasture during hiatus and go run off and do a movie with my brother Alec and you get to play his wife. Everything regarding the Oscars, movies and 30 Rock, I’m thrilled…[Alec] playing [her] husband where I’m playing her father, I’m not thrilled.” Especially since that means Alec’s allowed to look down when leggy Blake flaunts her cleavage.
