See Alec Baldwin in a whole new light in this animated escapade, from the makers of Shrek and Madagascar
The Boss Baby, available from Saturday 30 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U. Also available in HD
Baldwin lends his voice to a baby. But not just any baby. This baby carries a briefcase, wears a suit and refers to himself as “The Boss”. And this baby is on a mission – to bring down an evil plot by the CEO of Puppy Co.
Tom McGrath – the director of the Madagascar franchise – realised Baldwin would be perfect in the role after taking audio from his famous Glengarry Glen Ross monologue and animating it using a baby they had created for 2010 animated sci-fi comedy Megamind.
Joining Baldwin on this lampoon of the corporate world that will have the whole family in stitches, is Baldwin’s 30 Rock comrade Steve Buscemi, his former Friends love interest Lisa Kudrow (Baldwin’s turn as the infuriatingly cheerful Parker remains one of the all-time greatest Friends cameos), plus Jimmy Kimmel and Tobey Maguire.
