Alec Baldwin Hosting The Essentials

Last month, Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne sadly passed away after spending years dedicated to showcasing must-see classic films and spreading his passion for cinema. Though Osborne had reduced his role at TCM in recent years, the channel’s program The Essentials was left without a host in the wake of his death. But TCM announced a worthy replacement today.

Alec Baldwin has been hired to take over The Essentials on TCM starting in May. After co-hosting the show with Robert Osborne for three season from 2009 through 2011, Baldwin is the perfect pick to take over, especially after the bond that he struck interviewing Osborne for TCM’s Private Screenings for the channel’s 20th anniversary.
