Actor to co-host the movie showcase beginning in March

Alec Baldwin has signed on to co-host Turner Classic Movies' signature movie showcase, "The Essentials," alongside TCM host Robert Osborne.

Starting in March, Baldwin will join Osborne in introducing "must-see" movies each week, with an eye toward helping viewers better understand why these films are important and the effect they have on audiences and the culture at large.

Baldwin has previously appeared on TCM as part of the network's "Guest Programmer" series and hosted the TCM special "Role Model: Gene Wilder."

"The Essentials" airs at 8 p.m. Saturdays.
