Alec Baldwin in Talk Radio

Baldwin was still making the transition from soap opera to movie star, and hadn’t yet made his way to The Hunt for Red October, when he co-starred in Oliver Stone’s 1988 adaptation of Eric Bogosian’s stage play. As Dan, the skittish station manager, Baldwin perfectly embodies the kind of corporate yuppie scumbag that he would later give a more sinister edge in Glengarry Glen Ross.
