Alec Baldwin Doesn't Like Times Critic Who Didn't Like Him

Meanwhile, the actor says he sorely misses the genius of ex Times critic Frank Rich (who was actually so critical that some called him "the butcher of Broadway").
Well, Rich happened to rave about Baldwin's performance in A Streetcar Named Desire.
