Biography

This strikingly handsome lead of the 1990s is notable for his bedroom eyes and lean physique. The third of the acting Baldwin brothers (including the older Alec and Daniel and younger Stephen), William Baldwin left law school and began modeling. He first gained attention as an actor for his performance as convicted killer Robert Chambers in the TV-movie "The Preppie Murder" (ABC, 1989). That same year, Baldwin made his feature film debut (virtually as an extra) as a member of Tom Cruise's Marine platoon in Oliver Stone's "Born on the Fourth of July."
