Alec Baldwin went on Saturday Night Live acting as Americans Airlines pilot Captain Steve Rogers.
As Captain Steve Rogers, he apologized to Alec Baldwin, and was very complimentary of himself....I mean Alec Baldwin..since he was Captain Steve Rogers.
In an episode that already featured a digital clip with host Katy Perry, Matt Damon, and Val Kilmer, Alec took the cake.
Seth Myers appeared to be fearful being a part of the skit on "Weekend Update" and we are not sure how good of an idea this is.
Alec has since deleted his Twitter account since getting kicked off a plane from Los Angeles to New York since playing "Words With Friends" on his Ipad and refusing to turn it off after being asked to by a flight attendant.
It seems like public opinion is not in Alec's favor and instead of letting it go, he appears on SNL to somewhat mock American Airlines.
I am still not sure where I stand on this, but was Alec smart to appear on Saturday Night Live and do the skit in the first place?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Captain Stever Rogers Is Captain American Airlines?
The cell phone game "Words With Friends" can be very addicting. Just ask Alec Baldwin who was playing it while waiting for his flight to take off.
Alec was told by a flight attendant to turn off his Ipad and he became upset. To me and from what I heard online, is that American Airlines was making a bigger deal out of it than it was. However, this video footage from CNN that talks to passengers on the plane, Alec was in the wrong and inconsiderate.
Alec tweeted about the event and made it sound like American was out of line as well. Former boxer, Oscar De La Hoya was on the flight with Alec as well. Alec seems pissed in the video if anyone even remotely touches him.
I was feeling bad for Alec as I just heard from a friend how an attendant was rude on asking her to turn her iPod off. Now, after watching this video, I am not sure who to believe. The passengers did seem like it was Alec's fault and the way he was being escorted to another plane showed him somewhat angry without saying anything.
Who is in the wrong here?-DocFB
Diagnosis: WWF is no longer about wrestling but Words With Friends
Let's be honest here; until the last half hour, the Oscars were pretty much boring.
We knew Monique was going to win, and everything was not a shock or least bit amusing until the end. Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin were good. They did not run too long or do anything unneeded.
Weather George Clooney was really upset or it was all part of an act was the only thing interesting until the end.
Then came best actress. When I saw Oprah out there, I am like there is NO way Sandra Bullock is going to win the Oscar. I was like the girl from "Precious" in her first role is getting it.
So, yes, I was shocked when Sandra Bullock's name was announced. I was happy. She was stunned. Having to hear for months from Julia Roberts how she turned down the role for " The Blind Side" like it was something beneath her, I was worried. I was worried that Sandra would not get roles that would garner her an Oscar let alone a nomination. I am happy to think that now any movie that has Sandra in it will have in the credits Academy Award Winner Sandra Bullock. I like the sound of that a lot.
The Best Actor going to Jeff Bridges was not a surprise because the Academy usually gives it to roles like that. Perhaps George knew that and that he was not going to win.
Then, came the big ones. I think James Cameron already had a place in mind where he was going to put his Oscars in his house. Barbra Streisand came out and already I was like....hmmm...something interesting is about to happen. Interesting indeed as when Kathryn Bigalow's name was read, shock then applause went through the crowd. Yes, James Cameron was married to her so it was interesting that an ex-wife and ex-husband went against each other in the same category but it is not what defines her.
Then came the big one and Tom Hanks, and everyone was like OK, she got best director but "Avatar" is def getting best picture. I was stunned and the entire crowd was left with mouths open as Tom announced "The Hurt Locker" and it went from a boring Oscars to an Oscars to be remembered as an underdog war movie trumped a James Cameron movie.
An interesting show and some other notable moments:
Ben Stiller dressed as a character from Avatar.
Farah Fawcett being left off the list of those who passed this year. I guess when you die the same day as Michael Jackson, everyone forgets about you.
Also, Bea Arthur was left off the memoriam list as well. Tre lame.
The John Hughes tribute was brilliant. Sigh.

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards took place in Los Angeles last night.
In the TV categories, Mad Men won for best drama series ensemble for the second year in a row.
"Glee" was also recognized, winning best comedy series ensemble. And "30 Rock" swept the best actor in a comedy series category with both Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey winning awards. "SAG is the heaviest of any award," Fey said. "It weighs 100 pounds!" Fey went on to confess "I really, really expected to lose."
In the TV drama category, the SAGs echoed the winners from the Golden Globes last week: Julianna Margulies for best actress award for her role in "The Good Wife" and Michael C. Hall won for his leading role in "Dexter".
On the film side of the fence, Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) took the first statue for best supporting actor...
Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey of NBC's "30 Rock" won for best acting in a comedy series, while the award for best actress in a drama went to Julianna Margulies of CBS' "The Good Wife." Gloden Globe winner Michael C. Hall of Showtime's "Dexter" won best actor in a drama series.
The evening's first film acting trophy, for best supporting actor, went to Christoph Waltz for "Inglourious Basterds."
For a full list of winners see me after the jump..>>>>>
Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will co-host the 2010 Oscars. Hugh Jackman, who hosted this years Oscars, said he did not want to do it.
Steve Martin will be hosting for the 3rd time and Alec Baldwin is on board as of now, pending any outbursts beforehand.
The Oscars were fresh this year but that did have to do with the random choice of Hugh Jackman as host. I have major respect for both Martin & Alec but I don't think they were the best choice.
I would have rather seen Craig Ferguson host. Hip and still older, would have been a better choice. Will we get a performance from Steve on his banjo? I hope not, but I bet I will.
What do you think of this choice?-Dr.FB
Chris Pine is about to join the ranks of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and...Ben Affleck.
We are hearing that Chris is in negotiations to play the character of Jack Ryan from the Tom Clancy books. That should be hot, even though I have never seen any of Clancy's movies before.
You know I am still behind Chris Pine playing Frank Sinatra over Johnny Depp whenever the casting of that movie happens. I love Depp but Pine would be the better pick.-Dr.FB
Alec Baldwin says when his contract in 2012 ends on 30 Rock, he is done. Retired. Alec is still pissed at the voicemail incident from 2 years ago where mainstream media went tabloid in his book. This was brought up in a Playboy interview hitting stands this week.
From Matt Lauer doing an interview with TMZ's Harvey Levin before calling him about the incident with his daughter was the last straw with him ever being on the "Today Show" again.
His plans after he retires?
"I have this silly fantasy," he says. "I get married again, I have a kid. I'd love another shot at that, with everything I've learned. My kid's like eight, comes home and says, 'Dad, Jimmy's mom says you were a famous actor on TV and in the movies. Is that true?' And I go, 'Yes, Johnny, Dad was famous.' I whip out my scrapbooks and my DVDs and say, 'Believe it or not, that's your dad.' And my kid's like, 'You used to be on TV and everything? And now you stay home and just clean the house all day while Mom works?' 'That's right, son.' It's a dream, that the kid doesn't know anything about that part of my life. Our normal life is uncontaminated by it."
Let's see if he doesn't run for office. I think we all forgot about that voicemail...that is...until every time he brings it up. Let it go. We know it bothered you but we don't want to be reminded of that Alec. Plain and simple, you have recovered and bounced back from it and made it the past. Do us a favor Alec for those that like you, leave it there.-Dr.FB
