Alec Baldwin Remembers James Pritchett

In a new column for the Huffington Post, former THE DOCTORS star Alec Baldwin remembers the late James Pritchett.

Said Baldwin: "Pritchett played my father-in-law on the show. Soap operas are tough to act and tougher to write. How do you come up with something fresh and worthy every day? From Jim, I learned that, whatever the material, just listen and remember your cue. Jim, who in his youth bore an uncanny resemblance to Burt Reynolds, was a true gentleman. In 1997, I cast him in a film I produced called The Confession, with Sir Ben Kingsley. You'd be lucky if someone like Jim was the judge in your courtroom. He was a lovely and talented man."

  2. I very much remember Alec Baldwin as Billy Aldrich on The Doctors (1980-1982). James Pritchett was a true class act gentleman & great actor as Dr. Matt Powers on The Doctors. Rest In Peace, Jim!
