Biography

The self-described "black sheep" of movie star siblings the Baldwin brothers - along with Alec, William and Stephen - Daniel Baldwin entered the family business relatively late in life, and while an early television role garnered him strong notices, his continuing battle with drug abuse eventually threatened to overshadow his work as an actor. After chipping away at minor roles in films that included "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" (1991) and "Hero" (1992), he broke out with a prominent regular cast role on the celebrated police procedural "Homicide: Life on the Street" (NBC, 1993-99). Promising work in projects such as "Mulholland Falls" (1996), "Trees Lounge" (1996), and "John Carpenter's Vampires" (1998) was quickly eclipsed by a much publicized drug overdose in a luxury New York City hotel. What followed was a lengthy stretch of appearances in direct-to-DVD movies, punctuated by multiple arrests, stints on reality television, and the occasional high-profile project, such as the Emmy-winning cable drama "Grey Gardens" (HBO, 2008). Obviously talented as an actor in his own right, it became clear that the shadow Baldwin most needed to get out from under was not that of his illustrious brothers, but his own personal demons.
