Alec Baldwin has 'had enough' of acting and is pitching a REALITY TV SHOW with ... trends now
Alec Baldwin has revealed that he and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, have been pitching a reality TV show based on their family life because he's desperate to retire from acting and spend more time at home.
The Boss Baby star, 65, who is facing the possibility of involuntary manslaughter charges after fatally shooting Halyna Hutchins on the set of his movie Rust, has eight children – seven with Hilaria, 39, as well as daughter Ireland, 28, from his marriage to ex-wife Kim Basinger, 69.
Speaking on SiriusXM's Let's Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, Alec admitted he's set his sights on following in the footsteps of The Kardashians and The Osbournes by letting the cameras into his New York home.
It comes after he divulged he had barely broken even on a previous project because his earnings went on renting hotel rooms, plane tickets, and meals for his enormous brood.

'In the old days I'd jump on a plane and go to LA and do a movie here or a few episodes of Will and Grace I did for a while,' he said.
'You know, different things like that. And it was easy to pick up and go.
'They don't even have, I need 12 plane tickets, you know, nannies, kids, my wife, I need like 11. They don't even have 11 seats in the business class section of the plane.'
Recalling a work trip to Los Angeles some four years ago, he continued: 'We'd be in a hotel and we always stayed in the same hotel 'cause it was the only hotel that could put four suites together, so we could all live together.
'And I look at my wife and I go, "You realize we're not gonna make a dime, we're not gonna make one cent."
'Here we are mashed potatoes, $20 room service, a diet Coke is $11. I said, "You realize we're not gonna make a penny. The private plane, the hotel, the room service, we're gonna break even on this job I'm doing."'
Revealing what kind of work he and Hilaria are now in the market for, Alec added: 'So everything we did and then... shows we have considered and pitches we've heard, and even one or two pitches we've made about our family and that reality show has all been so we could stay home and just work from home.
'I'm desperate to try to work from New York.'
Alec and Hilaria are parents to Carmen, 10, Rafael, eight, Leonardo, six, Romeo, five, Eduardo and Lucia, both two, and one-year-old Ilaria
