Alec Baldwin has just done a two-day stint on the set of Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes movie. Little is known about Beatty’s long gestating biopic, other than the interesting cast (Baldwin joins Martin Sheen, Matthew Broderick, Annette Bening, Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins). According to Deadline, the actor will play Bob Mayhew, Hughes lawyer.
It must be pointed out that Baldwin also starred in Martin Scorcese’s Hughes biopic, The Aviator (which starred a miscast Leonardo DiCaprio). I like Baldwin as an actor, sure he’s had a few rough years in the media, but he has an unpredictable charm that comes across well.
Beatty’s Hughes movie is one of Movies In Focus’ must see in-production movies – so keep reading for details.
