Alec Baldwin to Star in NBC's 'A Few Good Men' Live

Alec Baldwin to Star in NBC's 'A Few Good Men' Live
Alec Baldwin is set to star in NBC’s live version of the hit drama A Few Good Men in the role of Col. Nathan Jessep.
The role of Jessep was made famous by Jack Nicholson in the 1992 film which also starred Tom Cruise and Demi Moore.
Alec Baldwin is the gift that keeps on giving at NBC, and we’re excited to have him starring in Aaron Sorkin’s towering work as we expand our live theater imprint beyond musicals,” Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement (via Deadline). “No stranger to live television, Alec is the most multi-faceted actor in the world and his range is incomparable. He will put his own inimitable stamp on the role of Col. Jessep in a play that is still as surprising and relevant as ever, from one of the most gifted writers working today.”
The drama, written by Aaron Sorkin, will debut in 2018 and will be NBC’s first live drama in over 50 years. NBC has plans for two more live musicals: Jesus Christ Superstar on Easter Sunday and Bye Bye Birdie starring Jennifer Lopez.
