Alec Baldwin: NYU's Commencement Speaker!

Alec Baldwin braves nasty New York City weather to speak at NYU’s Commencement on Wednesday (May 12) at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx.

The 52-year-old actor, who is a 1994 graduate of the university’s Tisch school, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree from NYU.

“California and Florida may have sunshine, but they don’t have NYU, am I right?” Alec joked in his speech as rain poured down on graduates.

Alec‘s It’s Complicated co-star, Meryl Streep, will deliver the commencement speech at NYC’s Barnard College next Monday (May 17). You can watch a webcast of her speech here!

FYI: Alec is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend!
