It is in quitting his own public life that Alec Baldwin now has time to promote the public lives of others. And so the cosmic dance continues. Deadline reports that the 30 Rock actor will executive produce Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank, a documentary about the openly gay former Congressman. The film is set to debut at next month's Tribeca Film Festival, with Baldwin scheduled to lead a Q&A session with Frank following its premiere. As for what Baldwin will be doing before and after the Q&A … well, that's not really any of our business, now is it?
