Second only to "Hunger Games" with endless casting announcements, director Adam Shankman hasn't been able to stay off Twitter or turn down interview requests for "Rock Of Ages," his big haired '80s musical movie which seems to have been casting forever. But it looks like he's lost a cast member instead of adding one.

Alec Baldwin is certainly not wasting any time in filling up his calendar now that the debacle that is "Men In Black 3" is behind him, and "30 Rock" will be wrapping up soon for the season. He's already signed on for the indie "Lucky Them" with Marisa Tomei, Thomas Haden Church and Allison Janney (that will shoot later this year), not to mention the mega-musical "Rock Of Ages," and it looks like once he's done singing and dancing this spring, he'll take a trip over to Italy.

While "The Last Exorcism" couldn't muster up a decent scare and "The Virginity Hit" was a non-starter, Huck Botko -- who wrote the former and wrote/directed the latter -- seems to be making a step into feature films that have a budget that requires more than running around with a handheld camera.

Ooof. As if the woes around "Men In Black 3" couldn't get worse --- with a ballooning $200 million budget, an unfinished script, writers who aren't talking to producers and a massive production delay -- the film is now losing actors.

Hint: It Was Probably Harrison FordIn a column for the Huffington Post, Alec Baldwin turned what was supposed to be a piece telling Charlie Sheen to show some remorse and beg to get his job back on "Two And A Half Men," into a much more interesting story about how he lost out on the Jack Ryan franchise after "The Hunt For Red October."
