VIDEO: Alec Baldwin Plays a Gun-Toting, Gangster Priest in Irish Crime Comedy ‘Pixie’
Upcoming film also stars Olivia Cooke, Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack, and Colm MeaneySeptember 18, 2020
A young woman hopes to avenge the death of her mother by way of an elaborate heist in the Irish-set crime dramedy “Pixie.”
Olivia Cooke (“Ready Player One”) stars as the titular protagonist, who goes on the run with her two friends (Ben Hardy and Daryl McCormack) after the trio gets embroiled in a bizarre but deadly plot with a group of gun-toting, gangster priests.
Alec Baldwin, Colm Meaney, and Ned Dennehy also star in the Barnaby Thompson-directed film, with Baldwin playing one of the deadliest-seeming men of the cloth. “These guns aren’t gonna shoot themselves,” his character declares in the trailer (above) after popping open his trunk to reveal a cache of firearms. “The lord will have his vengeance,” he later adds.
Alec has joined the Stern Show multiple times over the years, most recently in March when he and his wife Hilaria connected with Howard shortly after the onset of the quarantine. Their conversation covered everything from how they talk to their children about the coronavirus to Hilaria’s yoga schedule. Watch a clip from the interview (below).
“Pixie” is coming soon.
