Stephen Baldwin Gives Us a Scare
When we heard that Stephen Baldwin was replacing Shannen Doherty as host of Sci Fi Channel's Scare Tactics (starting with the reality hit's third-season premiere tonight at 10 pm/ET), we came down with the giggles, not the jitters.
But, as Alec, Billy and Daniel's brother tells TV Guide Online, the job doesn't call for him to be frightening, just himself. "You have to have a certain sick sense of humor to get the show. That's why [I think the producers] called me. They said, 'The show has gotten gnarlier — you'd be a perfect fit [as host]!'
"Besides," he adds with a laugh, "there are a whole bunch of people out there who think that I'm very scary!"
That said, the 38-year-old actor, whose films have ranged from the sublime (The Usual Suspects, with Kevin Spacey) to the ridiculous (Bio-Dome, with Pauley Shore), may be a more natural fit with Sci Fi than he even realizes. Alread
