Alec Baldwin is an on-screen legend, beloved for his performances in everything ranging from Beetlejuice to Saturday Night Live. Though he’s now a family man and established actor, Baldwin first began acting in the ’80s with various appearances on television shows and on Broadway productions. He gained further recognition in the years after, particularly for his role in The Hunt for Red October as Jack Ryan. Baldwin’s range of film roles are very versatile. From comedies, dramas, to even thrillers, Baldwin hasn’t shied away from any character. His first big role, however, was in Beetlejuice, and it was one role that Baldwin almost didn’t take. He’s since opened up about how unique his time on set was.
