Alec Baldwin Offers Advice to Charlie Sheen: Beg!

by at . Comments

The same man who cracks us up each week with dry-witted 30 Rock quotes has grown (somewhat) serious when it comes to Charlie Sheen's career.

In an editorial for The Huffington Post, based on his own experiences with executives in the movie and TV business, Baldwin addresses the troubled actor and says: "You can't win. Really. You can't."

Meaning what, exactly? Baldwin gives us a look inside the industry and continues:

Baldwin, Alec
Such a Winner

"No actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit. And, in that regard, [executives] are often right. Add to that the fact that the actor who is torturing their diseased egos is a drug-addled, porn star-squiring, near-Joycean Internet ranter, and they really want you to go."

Baldwin is correct that almost all hit shows remain popular and profitable after stars leave. Look at NYPD Blue, ER, CSI.

In the end, here's what Sheen should do, according to Baldwin:

"Sober up, Charlie. And get back on TV, if it's not too late. This is America. You want to really piss off Chuck and Warner Brothers and CBS? Beg for America's forgiveness. They will give it to you. And then go back. You are a great television star... As I learned from closely observing Tony Bennett so I could impersonate him on SNL, this is supposed to be fun.

P.S... buy Cryer a really nice car."

Baldwin of all people knows what bad publicity can do to your career, he's speakin from personal experience and looks like thing have picked up for him. As for Sheen, not sure if he can ever recover from this fiasco but he can try. I wanna see him beg that would be a riot!

Baldwin was in quite a similar spot. Most thought he'd never work again. But he got back on track partly because he manned up and admitted his failings and wrongs. Sheen can't do that because he thinks he is right and has no faiings.

Alec Baldwin has been there and done that so his advice is worthy of being heard. Look where his life turned and he's back on top, him and his "schweaty balls"

Charlie Sheen Quotes

Sean Penn, Mel Gibson, Colin Farrell. They didn't give me any advice. Within that there's great advice. There's just love. Just seeing what's up.

All these words just sound cool together. They come from my grand wizard master.
