UPDATED, August 29: Alec Baldwin denies that he’s been cast in the Joker movie.
Baldwin tweeted Wednesday: “Let me state, for the record, that I have NOT been hired to play a role in Todd Phillips’ JOKER as some Donald Trump manque. That is not happening. Not. Happening.”
Baldwin informed USA Today that “scheduling” issues were the big reason why he was dropping out of the movie. “I’m no longer doing that movie,” Baldwin told the outlet. “I’m sure there are 25 guys who can play that part.”
