Alec Baldwin and Creative Artists Agency part ways

A CAA spokesman has confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Alec Baldwin had parted ways with longtime agents Matt DelPiano and Michael Rosenfeld. No reason for the split was provided.

Baldwin was a CAA client since 2002. He had a resurgence in his career with critically acclaimed film and television roles such as “The Cooler,” “The Departed” and “The Aviator”; also “Will & Grace”; and won the Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for his role on NBC’s “30 Rock.”

“This is strictly for personal reasons,” said Baldwin’s publicist to the Los Angeles Times, Matthew Hiltzik.

The Times describes Alec’s parting as a “firing” and it comes as a time when the actor is top news over a leaked voicemail tirade he left on his daughter’s cellphone last week.

Kim Basinger released a statement denying that it was she who leaked the private voicemail to TMZ.com.

Basinger, according to the Los Angeles Times, is also repped by CAA, also called Baldwin “unstable” and “irrational.”

In the voicemail, Baldwin sounds as if he were talking to his agent or manager over a deal gone bad, and that he’d fly out for one day to “straighten” the child out.

A hearing is scheduled May 4th on Baldwin’s visitation rights.

Baldwin became proactive and apologetic, and went on television and his own website, AlecBaldwin.com, acknowledging he has been “driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years.”
