Alec Baldwin is swapping some useless tiles for a few vowels. And fair enough. Cinema’s original Jack Ryan went all Ramirez on the staff of an American Airlines flight today after being told he’d have to depart the jumbo if he wished to continuing playing ‘Words with Friends’ on his iPad.
The “30 Rock” star tried to summon up old friend Beetlejuice but his cry was unanswered, thus the flight attendants tossed the jolly grey giant out one of the exits. Baldwin was next seen hitching a lift on
Red October another airline.
Curse words that’d score one a good 90 points or more on the WWF grid were said to have been muttered as Baldwin’s reps carried the veteran actor (assumingly, he kept playing as he was transferred) to that next flight.
Baldwin, evidently still on his iPad, tweeted shortly after “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt,” he tweeted, before adding “But, oddly, 30 Rock plays inflight on American. #theresalwaysunited.”
“The flight attendants already look…..smarter,” Baldwin, who was put on a 3pm flight, added. #theresalwaysunitied Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.”
You know what’d make this story more interesting? If Kevin Smith had been the guy Baldwin was playing Words with Friends against. Still, this is fitting headline fodder… I mean, who wouldn’t be smokey for being thrown off a plane mid-game? Nobody removes TRON from the Grid mid-way through his game, don’t remove Alec Baldwin as he’s trying to find an extra S to make ASS. Not cool, airline. I’m sure you totally deserved that angry sandwich Baldwin would’ve forced on you (God, can you imagine!? It’d be like John Malkovich in “In the Line of Fire”! “I want some GOD. DAMN. RESPECT!”).
In other news, Daniel Baldwin was booted from an Amtrak train for eating old cheese from the baggage booth above him.
