Jack Donaghy already has his golden parachute packed!
Next spring, after the final season of 30 Rock wraps, Alec Baldwin will be heading to work a few blocks over…. on Broadway!
The actor has agreed to star in Lyle Kessler’s Orphans as his first post-sitcom job.
Just so you know what Alec is in for, the play is about:
"Two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Treat, the eldest, supports his damaged younger sibling by petty thievery, and makes the house a virtual prison for the seemingly simple-minded Phillip. One night he kidnaps a rich older man; Harold turns out to have his own motives and becomes the father figure the boys have always yearned for."
Baldwin will play the
youngest brother old man. What can we say, the actor LUVRES playing rich guys!
Taking this part could mean his plans to develop a musical with Scott Ellis are on hold or in the trash.
Either way, it will be TOTES exciting to see Alec live on stage!
