Alec Baldwin skips out on Emmys with his skit cut out
HollywoodNews.com: Alec Baldwin is a TV staple with his current role on ’30 Rock,’ but apparently he wasn’t so crazy about his pre-taped skit being cut from the Emmys.
Baldwin reportedly taped something for the opening, but FOX was apparently not happy with it as he took a dig at parent company News Corp and president Rupert Murdoch’s phone hacking scandal, states UsMagazine.com. Baldwin did take to Twitter about his disappointment over the cut: “I did a short Emmy pretape a few days ago. Now they tell me NewsCorp may cut the funniest line. #NewsCorphumorlessaswellascorrupt.”
However, he wasn’t exactly completely bitter over the matter as he reportedly didn’t attend the Emmys in part because he was going to Tony Bennett’s birthday party in New York.
Do you wish they would have shown the skit?
