Everyone knows Alec Baldwin, surely? And you might think that he is the only Baldwin, or maybe he has one brother, probably Stephen.
You'd only know that because you saw him on late night tv or in that one good movie where he played an escape convict with Morpheus.
About two years ago, Scientists discovered another Baldwin brother who was an actor as well. This caused mild distress but the alarm was officially raised last week when a fourth was discovered.
"We are beginning to think this is a virus or perhaps a plague," announced Doctor Eve Taurus from the center for disease control. "At the very least, we are looking at a bad acting epidemic."
Hollywood has been hit hard by the announcement vowing to only employ Alec in decent roles until the extent of the damage is known.
Scientists warn that this may not be enough, it could be a case of too little too late.
"The truth is," explained Doctor Eve Taurus, "we don't know how many more are out there! There are enough of them to start a shitty boy band, like an aged one direction but conservative estimates state that we could be looking at an entire orchestra!"
