Alec Baldwin receives star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Alec Baldwin of "30 Rock" fame received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Monday, just ahead of the NBC comedy show's 100th episode, set to air in the spring of 2011.
The 52-year-old native of the Long Island area in New York, received the 2,433rd star, which is located at 6352 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of Beso Hollywood, the restaurant owned by "Desperate Housewives" actress Eva Longoria. Baldwin was joined by his actor-brother Billy and fellow television sitcom star Megan Mullally of "Will & Grace" fame.
Baldwin rose to fame in the 1980s as a television actor and later filmed movies such as the 1988 cult classic "Beetlejuice" and the 2003 film "The Cooler," the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination.
Baldwin told Men's Journal in 2009 that he considers his "entire movie career a complete failure." He said last month that he is "very, very interested" in going into politics, as wildly speculated.
Meanwhile, Baldwin continues to star in "30 Rock" as network executive Jack Donaghy. His role on the show has earned him two Emmy Awards.
