If you wanted a trifecta of Alec Baldwin news, well then, my friend, you came to the right place!
- Baldwin is in talks for Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 5, in which he would play the head of the CIA. Jessica Chastain has declined the female lead in the film, but Paramount and Skydance have their eyes set on another.
- He’s also in talks for the untitled Sony Pictures football concussion picture produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Peter Landesman, and starring Will Smith.
- In the bonus round, Baldwin is reportedly developing a TV show with NBC Productions in which he would play the Mayor of New York City, a politician modeled after Canada’s own Rob Ford.
