For those of you who love seeing Alec Baldwin host Saturday Night Live, you’re in luck! Word is, the 30 Rock star will be returning to host SNL for the season finale later this month.
Alec Baldwin says he's done with acting. Well, once his 30 Rock contract is up in 2012. In the meantime, he'll continue doing things like co-hosting the Oscars next year, and nabbing gobs and gobs of awards for his portrayal of Jack Donaghy on said 30 Rock. Assuming his contract is by season, that would have Baldwin walking after the show's sixth season.
The Academy Awards doubles up on hosts this year with Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin sharing the duties. It will be the first time for 30 Rock's Baldwin, while Martin has hosted twice before. Producers hope making it funny will make it less boring.
Betty White and Jeff Dunham on 30 Rock! Sorry, I just can't bring myself to get nearly as excited about that second one. I know he's incredibly popular and breaking records on Comedy Central, but come on?! He's no Betty White!
