Occasionally volatile actor Alec Baldwin has issued an apology for the crazy incident that saw him get kicked off an American Airlines flight on Tuesday.

Baldwin became irate after his game of Words With Friends was interrupted with the flight from JFK to LAX still at the gate, but the cabin doors closed.

When he was asked to turn off his phone, Baldwin retreated to the bathroom and allegedly slammed the door, leading the pilot to call for his removal.

Today, he's feeling bad about all this. He writes:

"First off, I would like to apologize to the other passengers onboard the American Airlines flight that I was thrown off of yesterday. It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone with my 'issue' with a certain flight attendant."

"I suppose a part of my frustration lay with the fact that I had flown American for over 20 years and was brand loyal, in the extreme."

"The ticket agents and Admiral's Club staff have always been nothing but abundantly helpful, as I have flown hundreds of thousands of miles with the one carrier."

Alec Baldwin and American Airlines are engaged in an epic feud after the actor was removed from a flight Tuesday, then tore the airline a new one on Twitter.

All over a game of Words With Friends, too.

When Baldwin was told by flight attendants that he had to get off his phone in the middle of a game, he stormed off and slammed the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved, according to fellow passengers.

The cabin door was closed, but the plane remained at the gate at the time of the incident. Alec then got up to go to the can and angrily slammed the door.

The captain then himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.

Sources close to the 30 Rock star counter that he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant's name so he could file a complaint, but since the fasten seat belt sign was on at the time he was forced off the aircraft.

Alec proceeded to board the next LAX-JFK flight.

American Airlines claims Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" of the first flight, "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.

We cannot wait to sample Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls.

The ice cream company has come out with a flavor that immortalizes one of the funniest skits in Saturday Night Live history, one you can view HERE.

Schweddy Balls

The flavor features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum. It is loaded with fudge-covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls and it makes Alec Baldwin a very happy man. Says the hilarious actor/star of the skit:

“For a long time, I thought that ‘Here Lies Pete Schweddy’ would end up on my tombstone. Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry’s, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won’t go with me to the great beyond.”

Baldwin will return to host the September 24 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

A set of Schwetty Balls is coming to Saturday Night Live this fall.

Alec Baldwin has been tapped to host the show's 37th season premiere, though no date has been set yet for the episode. He'll be followed by Emmy nominee and Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy the following week.

This appearance will mark Baldwin's record-setting 16th time as host. He last appeared on the May 2010 finale. The guy is ridiculously hilarious.

SNL producer Lorne Michaels also confirmed to Bill Carter of The New York Times that the entire cast will return for the new season.

Kelsey Grammer can scarcely keep his own house in order. But the actor still thinks he'd make a good politician, admitting to The New York Post that he possesses the "narcissistic personality" necessary for that world and would consider a run for Mayor of NYC.

"I have a great career and extraordinary opportunities," the Grammer said.  "But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life, where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little."

Grammer is a known Republican, while Alec Baldwin - an outspoken Democrat - has shared a similar sentiment. Can you imagine a general election between these two? Who would you rather... elect?

And the Winner is?

They've both expressed interest in the gig. Which of these actors would make a better Mayor? View Poll »

30 Rock star Alec Baldwin has long mused about running for political office, but some of his recent Tweets have stoked more speculation than ever.

Earlier this week, Baldwin wrote that it's still "a long way till November of 2013" and then posted a link to the iconic song "New York, New York."

Interestingly, Baldwin just wrote an essay for The Huffington Post that was sympathetic to the plight of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Alec Baldwin For Mayor!

Weiner represents Brooklyn and Queens in the U.S. House, but has openly coveted the NYC mayoral post and was all but certain to run in 2013.

His rampant crotch-shot texting likely slammed the door on that lifelong political aspiration - but did it open one for Alec Baldwin in the process?

It certainly could happen. The actor owns an apartment on Central Park West, though his primary residence is in the Hamptons on Long Island.

He has flirted with running for Congress from his Suffolk County district, but this is the first time his name has been tied to the mayor's office.

Baldwin is a registered Democrat whose political views are the polar opposite of his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy, a Reagan-loving elitist.

What do you think? Should Alec run for mayor?

Alec Baldwin has an interesting, even somewhat sympathetic, take on the Anthony Weiner scandal, which reached new, disgusting heights this week upon the release of the Congressman's bare penis pic.

In a piece for The Huffington Post, Baldwin delved into the way technology has shaped human behavior and wrote:

“For high functioning men like Weiner and other officials who have lived through such scandals, who are constantly on the go, that leaves one tried and true source of a reliable high. The affirmation that comes when someone lets you know they want to sleep with you. Or even cyber-sleep with you.”

Smart phones and social networks have opened the door for busy individuals to receive the kind of gratification they aren't receiving at home, Baldwin argues:

“Appointment sex with your spouse doesn’t always arrive when you need it most. A modern cell phone, loaded with contacts of willing fellow players, has a table with a red checkered table cloth ready for you at virtually any time.”

Russell Brand is accustomed to looking flat-out ridiculous. In fact, it'd be strange if he didn't. Alec Baldwin, though? We're used to seeing him as buttoned-up exec Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock, making the image below even more awesome.

This photo from the set of Rock of Ages pretty much speaks for itself.

"On the set with the one and only Russell Brand," Baldwin Tweeted:

Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin

The duo play a music club owner and his assistant in the film, but we really think they should consider adopting these respective hairstyles full-time.

Katy Perry wouldn't mind ... would she?

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.
