Alec Baldwin returns to CAA

Actor, agency reteam after month-long break

In an about-face, Alec Baldwin has returned to CAA.

Citing personal reasons, Baldwin had left the agency late last month (Daily Variety, April 25).

The abrupt exit came as he was dealing with the blowback from a Web site leak of a four-minute voicemail tirade he left for his daughter after she missed a scheduled phone conversation.

It was the latest chapter in his contentious divorce with actress Kim Basinger, who is also represented by the same agency — a situation that may have exacerbated his ire.

Baldwin, who briefly said that he didn’t want to return to his series “30 Rock” and would instead devote himself to raising awareness of parental alienation during divorces and the inequities that fathers receive from the courts, is quietly getting things back in order, as his return to CAA indicates.

Through a spokesman, Baldwin said, “I could not imagine being represented by anyone other than Matt DelPiano.”

Though Baldwin is coming off strong movie work in “The Departed” and “The Good Shepherd,” he won’t take a film during the hiatus from the NBC sitcom “30 Rock,” which is coming back for its second season.

Baldwin, whose contract calls for him to appear in at least 12 episodes of the sitcom, will be back to work when shooting begins in August. He’s also in the middle of writing a book about the impact of the divorce process on fathers, and expects to have it published later this year through St. Martin’s Press.
