Get ready for a piping hot plate of schweddy balls. The first few members of Baldwin’s firing squad have been announced---and we’re in for something huge.
Robert De Niro, Blake Griffin, Caitlyn Jenner, Joel McHale, Debra Messing, Chris Redd and Jeff Ross signed up to sit on the dais and poke fun at the Donald Trump-impersonating, Oscar-nominated actor for The Roast of Alec Baldwin.
As previously announced, Emmy-award winning actor and Will & Grace co-star, Sean Hayes, will act as the Roast Master for the evening. Baldwin guest-starred in multiple episodes of the NBC show as Malcolm Widmark.
Baldwin won multiple Emmys for his role as Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock, hosted Saturday Night Live a record-breaking 17 times, and still makes occasional appearances on the late-night sketch show as Donald Trump. The New York native has appeared in various critically acclaimed movies including The Departed, Glengarry Glen Ross, and The Cooler, for which his role as Shelly Kaplow led to Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Baldwin also starred in Boss Baby and It’s Complicated.
The #BaldwinRoast will tape at the Saban theatre in Los Angeles on September 7 and will air September 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Be sure to tune in then to see what jabs the roasters will make!
