Alec Baldwin: Wedding to Hilaria Thomas
Kelly and Michael were joined by award-winning actor Alec Baldwin. Since Alec last appeared on the show, he’s gotten married to Hilaria Thomas. The couple were wed in the summer of 2012 at Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Soho, which is also Kelly’s church. It was a beautiful wedding, however, a church wasn’t Alec’s first idea. At first he was thinking outrageous locations such as a cliff in the Caribbean, or on a space shuttle. Eventually, he and his fiance`decided on the traditional route.
Alec Baldwin: Thanksgiving
Alec said that it’s hard for his very large family to get together for Thanksgiving. However, he will be spending the holiday this year with his niece Jessica in Chicago. She has three children, the youngest of which “completely took over” Alec’s wedding. He is like “a cartoon character,” who shoved everyone else off the dance floor so that he could show off his moves. Thanksgiving should definitely be fun with him!
Alec Baldwin: Turkey Bowl with Mariska Hargitay
Alec also has a holiday tradition that takes place every Saturday after Thanksgiving. He attends a “Turkey Bowl” party at actress Mariska Hargitay‘s house on Long Island.

Alec invited both Kelly and Michael to the annual event, and Kelly said she’ll be there, since she’ll already be out on Long Island.
Alec Baldwin: “Ask Alec” Game
Kelly and Michael got to know more about Alec Baldwin with a game of “Ask Alec.” He admitted that he prefers iPhones over Blackberries, yoga class over spin class, and that a perfect date for him would be a romantic dinner with his wife, followed by a lot of “bleeps” from Alec’s own censor!
“Ask Alec” took an unexpected twist when Alec turned the tables on the hosts. He had some questions of his own prepared, and they all featured a similar theme: “Who’s your favorite Baldwin?” and “What’s the sexiest thing about Alec Baldwin?” were among the questions.
Alec Baldwin: 30 Rock Final Season
Alec’s hit show 30 Rock is currently in its seventh and final season. Alec has won two Emmy Awards for his role as the bossy network executive Jack Donaghy.
