Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Handsome, strapping player of film and TV known for his portrayals of heavies. Baldwin was discovered by director Tony Bill while attending high school in Illinois, and was promptly cast as the title character in "My Bodyguard" (1980). That year he was also cast as one of Timothy Hutton's swim teammates in Robert Redford's "Ordinary People". After starring in "D.C. Cab" (1983), a low-rent comedy, Baldwin went on to supporting roles in more ambitious fare: Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" (1987) as a soldier who truly loves war; "Radio Flyer" (1992), as an abusive stepfather; and "Guilty by Suspicion" (1991), as a goon purporting to be an FBI agent. He also appeared in Lawrence Kasdan's "Wyatt Earp" (1994) and the blockbuster hit "Independence Day" (1996).
