After getting kicked off an American Airlines flight last week for playing Words with Friends, Alec Baldwin stopped by Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" to apologize to ... himself. On the show, Baldwin played the captain of the flight, who said he regretted his decision. Too bad it was obvious to Seth Meyers and everyone else that it was Baldwin underneath the hat and mustache. "Mr. Baldwin is an American treasure and I am ashamed at the way he was treated. What harm would it do to let him...

The lien was filed last month on the Batman Forever star's Santa Fe, N.M. property, which includes the 5,300-acre Pecos River Ranch he is trying to sell for $18.5 million. Kilmer, who has lived in New Mexico for two decades, originally put the ranch on the market for $33 million in 2009.

Go ahead and stare at Simon Baker. Gawk at his curly golden locks and his winning smile. He doesn't mind, really.
"It doesn't bother me because I know time is ticking," the 41-year-old Baker tells TVGuide.com. "I've been doing this for almost 20 years, and I'm able to see myself age on film. Eventually I know what I'm going to become — I've seen my father."
When Bruno Heller was looking to cast a leading man to play the role of Patrick Jane in The Mentalist, he was won over by Baker's looks as well. But he quickly learned there was much more beneath the surface. "What Jane does is get in people's physical space and inside their heads, and in order to do that, you have to be someone that people want to be close to, whether they know it or not," Heller says. "It needed a very magnetic personality playing the part.
Look back at Simon Baker's most memorable roles
"Simon has a physical and mental grace. He's always switched on — he's always alert, always alive," Heller continues. "If you watch him working on a stage, he's never just going through the lines. He's always looking for the extra grace notes. It's actually a much tougher job. Very few actors can do the hard physical work that must be done on a show like this."
But back in the late 1980s, when Baker first began acting in commercials in his native Australia, he laughed at the idea of considering acting a form of labor...

Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe
After taking over the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live's favorite inept spy, MacGruber, is ready to explode onto the silver screen — perhaps with a former Caped Crusader in tow.
Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in negotiations to star in the film, co-written by MacGruber himself, SNL star Will Forte, who will reprise his role, according to the Hollywood Reporter. SNL's Kristen Wiig will also join as his always imperiled assistant.
