The Baldwin family is an American family of professional performers, including the four acting siblings Alec, Daniel, William and Stephen, who are known collectively as the Baldwin brothers.

Ancestry[edit]

The Baldwin family’s patrilineal line traces to a Richard Baldwin, who lived in England, c. the 1500s. Through their father Alexander Rae Baldwin Jr., the Baldwins are descended from the Mayflower passenger John Howland. Alec Baldwin and his siblings are therefore the 13th generation of their family to be born in North America.[1]

Members[edit]

Actors Adam Baldwin and A. Michael Baldwin are not related to the family.

Hollywood[edit]

Three of the four brothers (Daniel, William, and Stephen) appear in the Oliver Stone film Born on the Fourth of July.[2]

In 1996, E! True Hollywood Story produced a television documentary about the brothers, eponymously titled The Baldwin Brothers.[citation needed]

In popular culture[edit]

  • In the 1995 film Clueless, "Baldwin" is used as a slang term for an attractive male, coined by writer-director Amy Heckerling after the four brothers.[3]
  • In the 1999 film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, when the United States declares war against Canada, the Royal Canadian airforce are depicted bombing the Baldwins (along with another acting dynasty, the Arquettes) as a pre-emptive strike.[4]
