The Baldwin family are American relatives, who, by birth, marriage or partnership, include professional performers, as well as the four acting siblings of Alec, Daniel, William and Stephen, who otherwise are known collectively as the Baldwin brothers.[1]

Ancestry[edit]

Alec’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 thirteenth generation of their family to be born in North America.[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 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.[3]
  • 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.[4]
