Biography

Baldwin was born in Winnetka, Illinois and studied at New Trier Township High School East in Winnetka. He has three children with his wife, Ami. He has no relation to the Baldwin brothers.

Politically, he has been a registered Democrat since 1980, but states that he re-examined his views after being given a copy of David Horowitz's book Radical Son. He now considers himself a "small government conservative libertarian", and has contributed to The Huffington Post and Big Hollywood.

He is an avid supporter of Ride 2 Recovery, a bike-riding organization set up for the rehabilitation of wounded veterans. He participated in the 2009 "Don't Mess With Texas Challenge" bike ride.

Baldwin is credited with having originated the GamerGate hashtag. His role in GamerGate led to a petition to prevent Baldwin from speaking at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo. The convention's management eventually decided after much deliberation and in response to a counter petition that Baldwin's political stance should not affect his guest appearance.

The film is set in an alternate-reality Earth. In 1899, The Martians launched an unprovoked attack on the major nations of the world. In Leeds, England, a younger Eric Wells watches in horror as a Martian Tripod lays waste to his city and then kills his father and mother. But before it can kill him, the Martian Tripod suddenly keels forward and crashes into the ground. Over 140 million people were killed by the Martians, and many of the great cities of the world were destroyed until the Martians were killed off by Earth's bacteria, against which the Martians had no defence.

Jackson). Jack Herrod (Tom Bower) is the white former sheriff who never officially solved the murder.
