L’attore Alec Baldwin ha fatto notizia nel 2021, ma non grazie alle sue doti di recitazione o alle sue impressionanti capacità di impersonificazione. Il 21 ottobre 2021 si è verificato un tragico incidente sul set del suo film della passione, “Rust”. Una pistola – impugnata da Baldwin – è stata scaricata, ferendo a morte la direttrice della fotografia Halyna Hutchins e il regista Joel Souza. Dal momento che la notizia ha fatto implodere la vita personale e professionale di Baldwin, l’attore è stato oggetto di molti controlli, tra cui un’indagine dell’FBI e una causa della famiglia di Hutchins.

For his part, Baldwin held off addressing the tragedy for about two months. In a December 2021 interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, the actor said he "would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never," before adding that the accident was just that — an accident. 

The Rust shooting involving Alec Baldwin has been ruled an accident

Following the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins, the FBI launched an investigation into the on-set incident involving Alec Baldwin. Revelations from the FBI included that the gun used was "intact and functional" and thus "could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger," per the forensic report obtained by ABC News. As a result, many were quick to point the finger at Baldwin and his wrongdoing.

However, New Mexico's Office of the Medical Investigator has found that — upon completion of the autopsy – the shooting and eventual death of the young cinematographer was an accident. AP News noted August 15 that the newly released report, accompanied by FBI findings regarding the gun used, was made public by Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office — now, it's up to prosecutors to move forward with, or abandon, any charges. 

"New Mexico authorities have found that Alec Baldwin had no authority or knowledge of the allegedly unsafe conditions on the set," attorney Luke Nikas noted. "He was told by the person in charge of safety on the set that the gun was 'cold,' and believed the gun was safe."

Time will determine whether or not Baldwin — and other involved parties — faces charges.
