Alec Baldwin says he's leaving public life, delivering that news in a very public way with a lengthy missive in Monday's New Yorker magazine. "I'm aware that it's ironic that I'm making this case in the media - but this is the last time I'm going to talk about my personal life in an American publication ever again," Baldwin told writer Joe Hagan in the piece, which can be read in full at the New Yorker's Vulture site.  The 55-year-old says...

I think it's for the best that the enraged, engaging Alec Baldwin, who seems never to have acquired the ability to control his volcanic temper despite multiple public embarrassments over the years, has decided to quit Twitter. Again. As you've probably heard, Baldwin went a bit nuts late last month after Daily Mail reporter George Stark wrote -- incorrectly -- that Baldwin's pregnant wife, Hilaria, had tweeted during James Gandolfini's memorial service. Apparently the reporter was in Los Angeles and failed to take into account the time difference between the two coasts.

What, Alec Baldwin host a talk show? The former "30 Rock" star is far too shy and retiring, right? MSNBC confirmed on Thursday that the 55-year-old actor and espouser of liberal causes will get his own weekly talk show, which some experts say is a trial run for a possible political career. But how could such a wallflower serve as a credible talk host? Baldwin seems far too mild to succeed in the rough-and-tumble of cable news, or so a skeptic might say.  PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times We here at Showtracker have scoured Baldwin's past, however, and discovered that in fact there is some evidence that he could bring some little-known skills to his latest gig. Maybe he's not the next Oprah, but he could definitely surprise us all. To wit: 1. He's a relationship expert.

Airing Monday night on HBO, "Seduced and Abandoned" is a meta-documentary in which actor Alec Baldwin and his filmmaker pal James Toback take a look at the arbitrary deal-making process behind today's movie business. Toback and Baldwin roamed the Cannes Film Festival last year, documenting the arduous -- and crushing -- prices of getting a film financed and made. The likes of Roman Polanksi, Martin Scorcese, Ryan Gosling and others offer their commentary and reservations about the industry as Tobak, who directs and stars, and Baldwin, who stars, try to pitch a movie they dub "Last Tango in Tikrit," an Iraq War-set romance with much "exploratory sex. " Baldwin, whose movie career has mostly given way to TV, spoke with Show Tracker about the film last week just before taping the next installment of his new MSNBC talk show, which also got some talk time.

For many actors, anchoring the Oscars in front of a global audience is a dream come true. But when Alec Baldwin dreams big, he imagines that he is Elliott Forrest. Elliott who? "I envy Elliott Forrest," Baldwin has confessed on more than one occasion. Yes, the award-winning actor, political activist, tabloid fodder, classic movie buff and co-host of Sunday's Oscars would chuck it all to have Forrest's regular gig on a classical musical station. From 7 a.m. to noon on weekends, Forrest hosts "Saturday Brunch" and "Sunday Brunch" on WQXR, the kind of shows that New Yorkers nestle up to in bed while eating a bagel and reading the paper or cleaning out old e-mail on a laptop.

Alec Baldwin, celebrated actor, self-congratulatory philanthropist and incurable hothead, is moving to Los Angeles. At least he's leaning heavily in that direction, according to a protracted rant he published in last week's issue of New York Magazine. Baldwin covered a lot of territory, from family troubles to his doomed MSNBC talk show to the indignity of having to share a Broadway stage with Shia LaBeouf. Mostly, though, he circled around his disgust for the media and, by extension, his disgust for New York City.

Baldwin faces up to six months in jail if convicted on the misdemeanor charge. The only thing missing was the jury.
