Alec Baldwin’s letter to Charlie Sheen

Alec Baldwin

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: He is one of the most versatile veteran actors in Hollywood, and he is also a fantastic writer. Sharing a war story of his own involving a decade-old battle with studio execs, Alec Baldwin wrote an open letter of counsel to Charlie Sheen.

Blogged the actor on his infrequently-written Hufington Post column, “The movie and television business are filled with some of the most wonderful and talented people you could ever know. It is also the rock under which you find the biggest, lyingest, thievingest scumbags on Earth.”

Using his own story of being ruthlessly backstabbed over a part in the sequel to “The Hunt for Red October”, Baldwin drew a parallel between his own experience and Conan O’Brien’s before speaking directly to Sheen.

“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.”

His final advice was straightforward: “Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it’s not too late. This is America. You want to really piss off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America’s forgiveness. They will give it to you.”
