Alec Baldwin honored for TV work with star on Hollywood Boulevard
The star was pegged to the actor's TV, with his series "30 Rock" having recently passed the 100-episode milestone. He's worked in feature films and on stage and hosted both the Oscars and "Saturday Night Live." Fifteen times, in the case of "SNL."
Baldwin said he was inspired to sign on with the sitcom after working with Mullally on "Will & Grace," E! Online reported.
"I'm kind of blown away," Baldwin said of the star, in front of Beso Restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard. "My daughter has the distinction of both of her parents having this. I think it's kind of cool for my kid."
(Actress Kim Basinger, whose star is down the way, is Ireland Baldwin's mom. Eva Longoria is, incidentally, a part owner of Beso. And Anne Heche, the honoree's onetime Broadway costar, was among those who showed up for the ceremony.)
Star No. 2,432 went to "Cops" producer — a.k.a. reality TV pioneer — John Langley on Friday.
