Other Details:The big names came out last night to celebrate Alec Baldwin. Access Hollywood asked everyone what they love the 30 Rock star-he's hilarious. NBC Niteside spoke to Jimmy Fallon, who gave an adorable anecdote about the first time he met Alec that is too good not to share:

“I remember when I first started on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ he said, ‘What’s your name, new guy?’ I said, ‘It’s Jimmy Fallon’ and he goes, ‘Jimmy Fallon I’m going to say your name more than anyone has ever said your name on television tonight. So tell your parents to watch and all your friends. I counted six times he said my name that night and I was just freaking out. My parents and everyone was calling the next day. It’s a big deal when you’re first starting out. I’ll never forget that.” [Via]
