Alec Baldwin is going to really test his live TV skills.
The go-to guy for “Saturday Night Live” is now doing NBC another ratings favor by portraying Col. Nathan Jessup in the adaptation of Aaron Sorkin’s Broadway show.
Yes, before Jack Nicholson made the role famous in the 1989 movie, it was on Broadway. Well now, Baldwin will look to make it a triple threat success. NBC’s adaptation will be the first live production of a Broadway drama in more than 50 years.
It's scheduled to air live sometime Spring 2018.
