Alec Baldwin will be back in front of the camera as soon as the SAG/AFTRA strikes ends, because he’s set to star in Kent State about the 1970 Vietnam War protests and shooting. An insider revealed that once Alec signed on for his role, the script was tweaked so his character won’t handle a gun. It seemed like the right thing to do since Alec was involved in the tragic accidental shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on his last movie, Rust. Although he’s been criminally cleared from that accident, the producers of Kent State decided it wasn’t a good look to have Alec with a gun, so that’s why they rewrote part of the script.
