The "30 Rock" star has signed on to serve as co-host alongside Robert Osborne of TCM's Saturday night showcase slot "The Essentials." Baldwin's a movie buff who will undoubtedly have a lot to say — in typically animated fashion — about the featured pics. Upcoming titles getting the "Essentials" treatment include "Rocky" (March 14); "Cat Ballou" (March 21); "Ben Hur" (March 28); and "Take the Money and Run" (April 4). Also, John Lithgow has been tapped to host TCM's "The Essentials Jr." family film showcase, to run June-August.
