Alec Baldwin Is Now Alec “Bonefish” Baldwin

Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin is now the voice of Bonefish Grill.  This adds to his many other endorsements, like Capital One, Hulu, Wegmans, and New Era Caps.  So as you’re reading this, Alec Baldwin is using his Capital One Venture Card while dining in Bonefish Grill and watching Hulu on his mobile device, all while wearing his New Era baseball cap.  Oh, and he’s stopping at Wegmans on the way home to get (product to be endorsed) to drink while he watches 30 Rock, Thursdays 8:00 on NBC.

The weird part about this is that Baldwin’s character on 30 Rock, Jack Donaghy, would probably make fun of Bonefish Grill, radio commercials, and anyone doing radio commercials for Bonefish Grill.  I can hear it now, “His career is dead, Lemon.  Today I heard him on a radio commercial for Bonefish Grill.”  Of course, this brings me to the question, WHY IS ALEC BALDWIN DOING RADIO COMMERCIALS FOR BONEFISH GRILL?  I’m sure he’s a multimillionaire, he’s definitely a great actor, so why not go be in a movie?  Are radio commercials a new stage in the EGOT?  What is it now, EGOTR?  Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony, Radio?  If so, he’s still got a few of those to win before radio.

Even weirder, I’m pretty sure Alec Baldwin has never set foot in a Bonefish Grill.  Somewhere after the first million, you stop making trips to Bonefish Grill.  Are we supposed to believe that out of all the fine restaurants a rich person can choose from, he’s gonna stop by the suburbs to chow on some Bonefish Grill?  I guess we’re supposed to think, “Oh, Alec Baldwin’s just like us, he enjoys a fancy night out at the Bonefish Grill when he can afford it.”

Come on Alec, leave some jobs for Ted Williams, The Man With The Golden Voice.  I bet he’s thinking “That rude thoughtless little pig Alec Baldwin thinks he can make it in radio!”
