If anyone knows media scrutiny due to uncontrolled rants and name-calling, it’s Alec Baldwin. And he, of all people, managed to reconstruct his career, with the help of his pal Tina Fey.
And now he has a message for Masheen.
Check out his open letter to the ‘winner’ below.
“You can’t win. Really. You can’t. When executives at studios and networks move up to the highest ranks, they are given a book. The book is called How to Handle Actors. And one principle held dear in that book is that no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit. And, in that regard, they are often right. Add to that the fact that the actor who is torturing their diseased egos is a drug-addled, porn star-squiring, near-Joycean internet ranter, and they really want you to go.”
He adds, “Granted, it didn’t get real until you insulted them. And your suit may have real grounds. But you know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology… and then beg for your job back. Your fans demand it. You will never win because when you are as big a d**chebag as some of these guys are, they have no choice but to snuff you. (Do you secretly want to get snuffed? So you can go back and make movies?) “Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it’s not too late. This is America. You want to really p**s off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America’s forgiveness. They will give it to you. And then go back. You are a great television star. And you’ve got the gig. P.S…. buy Cryer a really nice car.”
Sounds like some pretty fab advice. Will Masheener take it or will he throw Baldwin in with the trolls? I think not. Masheen is winning. Duh.
