Even if he’s not your political bag of tea, you’ve probably watched with some semblance of grudging respect while Alec Baldwin up and made off like Madoff with several entire movies, even when he was only in them for a handful of minutes. But such is the appeal of the smooth star of stage and screen (and, briefly, message machine); a man who’s “known as much for polarizing politics, paternal peccadillos and personal-life pugnacity as for his powerhouse performances.”

What he’s also justifiably famous for is being an interview subject of strong opinions and rare candor — and it’s as an interview subject that Baldwin comes to the stage of the Two River Theater this Saturday, for an informal Q&A with the audience entitled An Evening with Alec Baldwin. It’s a fundraiser for the Rumson-based nonprofit Junior League of Monmouth County, and today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit has the details from the JLMC on how this hotter-than-hot star — a double-whammy Emmy winner for 30 Rock and the newly named co-host of the next Oscars — dropped everything to do a solid for this local volunteer organization of women during their annual Home for the Holidays weekend.

It’s all here, along with a slideshow of scenes from this week’s Taste of Two Rivers restaurant expo at the Bridge Avenue arts center, only in the pixelated pages of Red Bank oRBit.
