Last Wednesday, 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin was ejected from an American Airlines flight after he refused to shut down his phone and proceeded to throw a bit of a hissy fit. It delayed the flight’s take off but perhaps more importantly, it reminded us all that although he’s easy to like, Baldwin has a storied history of losing his cool. You no doubt remember the voice mail to his daughter that was leaked years ago, wherein he calls her a “rude thoughtless pig” and he’s had some altercations with photographers– and we think he ate a live baby once. The point is, he’s a hot head.
So, in an effort to diffuse this most recent faux pas, Baldwin appeared as a surprise guest on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” alongside Seth Meyers. Baldwin portrayed the pilot of his flight. Check it out below.
