Studio 360 Episode 1113, Hot Rods, Low Riders, Chali 2na Alec Baldwin (Brigitte Lacombe)

Guest host Alec Baldwin talks with the actor Laura Linney and the writer Mary Karr. From movie roles to Broadway, Linney confesses she's constantly up against an odd problem: she's too likeable. The modern memoir owes a lot to Mary Karr, but she's reluctant to admit her impact on the genre. And a custom greeting card writer explains how he whips up the perfect card for any situation.

Dear Mr. Baldwin,

You and I did six shows together on 30 Rock - you as the the star, I as Rip Torn's wife, Gwen Guiess. You may not remember, but I remember the privilege of working with you on everyshow. You may or may not remember my asking when we would see you again on Broadway and now my dream has come true.

If possible, I would love to see you in Orphans. I would love two tickets, full price, no freebies, to see you once again on Broadway. The last time I saw you was A Streetcar Named Desire. You brought such humor and threat to Stanley that I was blown away.
