Here is some more 60-something casting for ya. This morning we heard about the hilarious new comedy, Last Vegas with Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro. Now we hear that Alec Baldwin has signed on to not one but two new movies. He will be starring in a film with Russell Brand and another one with the movie veteran, Woody Allen. Is Alec lining up so much work because his schedule is freeing up?
According to Deadline, the Russell movie, Man That Rocks the Cradle, will see Alec play an overworked dad who hires a “fancy” nanny and is shocked to find the child whisperer to be a man. Alec worked with Russell on Rock of Ages, and now they are teaming up again. I haven’t seen them together in that one yet, but I’m fascinated to see what kind of chemistry they foster together. I can’t imagine it, but apparently, they got on like a house on fire. There are also rumors of Cate Blanchett joining that cast. Russell and Cate? Strange! Do you think Russell might be the nanny?
The plot and cast for the Woody Allen movie are all still under wraps, but one thing is for sure, Alec Baldwin is busy and lining up lots of film work, so I guess that means that he has a lot of time freeing up in his schedule – what does this say about 30 Rock?
