Being an actor is all about jumping into
someone else’s skin, or in my case,
into their giant foam head. My name is Terrence and I’m
the Times Square Alec Baldwin. How do I set myself apart?
Well… You’re like a crossing guard
at the school zone. You (beep) idiot. I learned from the best. No, you’re walking like you
have to take a (beep). What are you doing?
Go upstage. A lot of people think
Alec has a short temper. Let me see if the head
is the problem. Let me do that.
Okay. But actually,
he’s just misunderstood. That was incredible. Talent does what it can.
Genius does what it must. And go. Your balls
are filled with helium. Suffer, suffer,
suffer, suffer. Also, sometimes he’s British. Is there enough love
for me in this room? Do you all love me enough?
Never. [inaudible 00:00:52] There’s so many beloved
characters in Times Square. SpongeBob, Pokemon, Pokewomon, but what are you
going to remember? The time you fake a smile
with a Ninja Turtle, or the time
you met legendary actor Alec (beep)
Baldwin? One thing people love about Alec Baldwin is how easy it is
to give him a hard time. Smile. Sometimes
that gets taken out on me. It’s like a form of therapy. Do the cops ever intervene? Yeah.
I guess you could say that. I have a high threshold
for pain. This one’s from a guy on his way
back from Yankee stadium. It was a bad day. Always be closing. I’ve tried all
the acting styles. I’m the boss, baby.
Meisner, Stanislavski, Adler, but nothing compares
to putting on his head and just letting my ego
do the performing. What I do is I give people a quintessential
New York experience. A lot of these other characters don’t even take
the art form seriously. To them, it’s just a gig.
Well, to me it’s passion. I don’t even take money.
If you give me money, I will throw it back
in your face. I think Alec would
be proud of that. Do you all love me enough?
