Loser Watch: Stephen Baldwin

>> Friday, April 23, 2010

My infatuation with hairy men started early with Tom Selleck and Alec Baldwin. I was a teenager in the late 80s and nobody is sexier than Alec Baldwin. It's fortunate for Alec to have 3 brothers, I thought the handsomeness should be multiplied and benefit the world but understandably not everyone can be as good looking or as successful as Alec.

Reading Slog, apparently someone (probably Stephen Baldwin or someone close to him) has created a site called Restore Stephen Baldwin asking for donation for Stephen Baldwin. It claims that after he announced publicly that he's a Born Again Christian in 2002, his income has decreased 70% and in the name of God we should help him out.

The site claimed that Stephen is used to Hollywood's glitz and glamor and after being born again, he took a stand and refused a lot of roles with gratuitous sex and violence and for that reason he was forced to file for bankruptcy. He has since been ridicule and mock for his belief and so he should be restored to his former celebrity status in order for him to reach millions with the Gospel and glorify God. I was thinking that might be a joke but it looks more like a pastor is using his name to get donations from people that those two might probably split.

Um, okay. The only problem with this is that Stephen Baldwin was never a megastar, given he has the Baldwin name but he seems to have been the least successful of them all. Ironically, his most famous movie for me was Threesome about a love triangle where the gay lead was infatuated with fratboy who was played by Stephen, who was infatuated with the girl who was infatuated with the gay lead. The other sorta famous movies were The Usual Suspects that I have yet to watch and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas where he played Barney Rubble which is sorta religious-like when you count the belief that dinosaurs and human coexisted. I dare you to name 3 other movies that starred Stephen Baldwin by heart, I know I can't.

Nowadays his relevancy is appearing in one episode of CSI in 2005, going on The Apprentice, I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Outta Here and Celebrity Big Brother which I'm guessing aired in the UK which is as high as any heights in his career. So it begs the question "What exactly are we restoring Stephen Baldwin back to?" Before his Born Again Christian thing, he was a drug addict, he was at best a C-list actor. When you don't make it in Hollywood, there shouldn't be a safety net. Tons of people get famous and then go out of style, just ask Vanilla Ice or MC Hammer. The best example would be Mr. T who work hard to be in people's face doing commercials, he didn't have to reject or accept immoral roles and I'm curious on what kind of violent or sex roles are Stephen Baldwin being offered. Amateur porn?

Maybe the title of this post is a little harsh but I can't wrap my head around how someone is used to fame and fortune so we must help him to stay that way, it gives me almost as much rage as helping out major banks by bailing them out and then they turn around to use the funds to give their employees bonuses. Read the Q&A and don't miss these ridiculous golden nuggets:

Q- Why does Stephen need personal wealth?
A- Stephen’s influence is in Hollywood. Hollywood worships money and without it you are seen as a loser and cannot be an effective influence to this group.
Q- How much money does he need?
A- From what I read in public court documents Stephen needs several million dollars to pay all of his creditors but he deserves hundreds of millions for his Job like faithfulness in the face of relentless loss and persecution
Some have asked why $4.21. Job 42:10-11 is the model and inspiration for this movement. $4.21 is the lowest possible left to right combination of these scriptures.
