I think it's a bit tasteless keep linking this clip. As far as we know he never actually hurt someone, and considering the battles he's had with aphasia it feels like kicking him while he's down. Let McClane enjoy his retirement.

Yeah, but in conjunction with the Rust incident, I think it's fair to bring up, since it will bring greater awareness of gun safety on sets from here on, and hopefully help avoid any more tragedies like the one Baldwin was involved in from happening. Speaking of which...



Well, it turns out, according to the FBI, that Baldwin did pull the trigger, so he's lying. His comments in the article sound like those of a crazed lunatic.



Were this a British murder mystery, the bigger question is how the bullets got in the gun. Baldwin obviously doesn't want to be responsible and has been in a stark white heat panic about the incident since day one, and truthfully, assuming that he didn't actually mean to murder someone in full view, on a movie set, he probably didn't know what he did for a couple seconds prior to the shots so he's scrambling for the best possible "truth". I did that on many occasions as a kid, trying to figure out how the vase got broken on the floor after my mom heard the crash. Baldwin is the kid standing over the vase....."it jumped off the table".

I doubt that we will ever know exactly who handled the gun, who put live rounds in it, how many people handled the gun before Baldwin unknowingly pulled the trigger and importantly, why. Was it an accident or did someone have a purpose and motive. If so, how could that person know who would be shot and whether the shot would be fatal? Was this a ham-fisted attempt to ruin a movie production by a disgruntled worker? We're going to be hearing about this one now and again for a while. Meanwhile, the medical examiner seems to be punting.

That's because Baldwin is a crazed lunatic.

Yeah, but like most crazed lunatics, he probably would not commit murder in full view of witnesses and cameras. I don't especially like him, but this charge does not pass any stink test. Somebody behind the scenes screwed up and has spent a couple years of sleepless nights hoping that the story simmers down before they get caught. The other possibility, a hapless, incompetent accident has not been documented yet.

Good points. What astonishes me is that scores of live rounds were present on the production set. I can't think of a single reason for that. A live round would never be necessary.

Did he ever turn over his phone to police?

A settlement has been reached between Alec Baldwin and the Hutchins family. Matthew Hutchins announced the film will resume production in January and he will be serving as an executive producer as part of the settlement and will receive a portion of the film's profits.

I just don't know how you complete the movie after this has happened. You killed someone on set and you're going to go back and play with guns as a cowboy some more? Really?
