It’s interesting that the N.Y. Times has ran a story about Alec Baldwin‘s backstage temper problems. I’m not saying that Baldwin appears to have issues along these lines and I certaily don’t wish to minimize the difficulty of working with anyone who punches walls, but the upshot is that actress Jan Maxwell so didn’t want to be around Baldwin that she resigned from a Roundabout theatre production of “Entertaining Mr. Sloane”, in which she and Baldwin have been costarring. I wonder how many producers of stage plays or films or TV movies made a mental note after reading this story, to wit: “Hammer is a top-notch talent but think it over before hiring her…perhaps a tad too sensitive, can’t handle the rough and tumble.”
