Happy 55th birthday, Alec Baldwin! After a period in the showbiz wilderness (remember that voicemail), Baldwin has climbed back to the top once again with his career-defining role in 30 Rock, and appearances in recent blockbusters like The Departed, It’s Complicated, Rock Of Ages, and too many more. In honor of the most famous Baldwin’s brother’s big day (sorry Stephen), we’ve assembled his 15 greatest Baldwin-isms from throughout his career. It’s the least we could do after those pics of his daughter we posted last week…Anyhow, enjoy!
15. On Salesmanship: As Blake In Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)
“F— YOU! That’s my name. You know why, mister? You drive a Hyundai to get here, I drove an $80,000 BMW. THAT’S my name.” Alec Baldwin defines baller (as well as a–hole) in this epic (NSFW) speech from the film adaptation of the David Mamet play.
14. On Economics: As Phil DeVoss in Elizabethtown (2005)
Alec paints a vivid portrait of $972 million to a terrified young executive, whose faulty product could cost the company just that amount.
