Add Alec Baldwin's name to the ever-growing list of Hollywood players who have been removed from planes.
On Tuesday, the actor took to Twitter to announce he'd gotten in trouble on an American Airlines flight while sitting at the gate at Los Angeles International Airport.
"Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt," he tweeted, before following up with "But, oddly, 30 Rock plays inflight on American. #theresalwaysunited."

"On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait," Wolf wrote.
But, the airline didn't seem to have hard feelings. American Airlines' Twitter account wrote to Baldwin, saying, "@AlecBaldwin Mr. Baldwin, we are looking into this. Please DM us contact information," and the actor later tweeted he'd been put on a 3 p.m. flight.
"The flight attendants already look.....smarter," he said before tweeting "#theresalwaysunitied Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants."
