Bio

Daniel Baldwin is an American actor, producer and director. He is the second oldest of the four "Baldwin brothers", all of whom are actors.

He is perhaps best known for his starring role as Detective Beau Felton on the television crime procedural Homicide: Life on the Street, from 1993-1995.

Baldwin was born in Massapequa, New York, the son of Carol Newcomb (née Martineau), a breast cancer survivor who founded the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center of the University Hospital and Medical Center at Stony Brook; and Alexander Rae Baldwin, Jr., a high school history/social studies teacher and football coach.

Baldwin was raised in a Catholic family of Irish and French descent.

In addition to his three famous actor brothers, Alec (born 1958), William (born 1963) and Stephen (born 1966), Baldwin has two sisters: Beth Baldwin Keuchler (born 1955), and Jane Baldwin Sasso (born 1965).

Baldwin was a standout high school football player and graduated in 1979 from Alfred G. Berner High School in Massapequa, NY. He also attended McKenna Junior High School.

From 1993 to 1995, the 6'2" Baldwin was a regular on the cast of the television series Homicide: Life on the Street.

He has made guest appearances on a number of other television shows including Family Ties (his television debut in 1989), Charles in Charge, The Outer Limits, NYPD Blue and Touched By An Angel.

He has also acted in numerous feature films including Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man (1991), Mulholland Falls (1996), Net Worth (2000), Stealing Candy (2002), Paparazzi (2004), Final Move (2006) and Shadowheart (2008).

In 2005 he was featured in VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, a reality show in which overweight celebrities compete to see who can shed the most pounds. He was the team captain of "The Eastsiders" which also featured rapper Biz Markie, plus-size model Mia Tyler, and actor Joe Gannascoli (later traded for Judge Mabalean Ephriam from Divorce Court).

A one-time sports handicapper, Baldwin is divorced from Cheryl Baldwin (they met in high school), by whom he has a daughter, Kahlea (born in 1983).

Kahlea moved to Santa Monica in early 2007, after a brief stint in San Diego where she committed cheque fraud and stole various amounts of money from her employer(s) and roommate.

In 1990 he married actress Elizabeth Baldwin; they had a daughter Alexandra in 1994 before divorcing in 1996. Alexandra now lives in England with her mother.

Since 1994, he has been involved with his Homicide: Life on the Street co-star, Chicago-born actress Isabella Hofmann, by whom he has a son, Atticus (born on July 13, 1996), who was named after the crusading lawyer in "To Kill a Mockingbird".

Baldwin spent two weeks at now-defunct treatment centre Anacapa by the Sea in Port Hueneme, California, for treatment of addiction to cocaine.

In 1998, he was found running naked through the halls of New York's Plaza Hotel, and arrested for possession of cocaine. He pled guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to three months in drug rehab.

He later told People magazine he had been battling a cocaine addiction since 1989.

On April 22, 2006, Baldwin was arrested after police received a call that a woman had been threatened at the Ocean Park Motel in Santa Monica. Authorities subsequently declined to press charges.

Baldwin was arrested on July 19, 2006, after he crashed his Ford Thunderbird into two cars parked on a Los Angeles street. According to the police, Baldwin ran a red light after weaving through the traffic in West LA just before 1 pm.

He then crashed his rented Ford Thunderbird into two parked cars while going 80 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Jason Lee, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles police, said "The Thunderbird pushed one of the vehicles about 20 feet, and that was a Hummer."

Police say Baldwin was driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash. He was transferred to UCLA Medical Center with back and neck injuries, but did not appear to be seriously hurt.

On November 7, 2006, Baldwin was arrested in Santa Monica, CA, after allegedly stealing a white GMC Yukon SUV. The actor was taken to jail and booked for investigation of grand theft auto. Bail was set at $20,000.

"The car belongs to an acquaintance of Mr. Baldwin, but he had no permission to take it," said Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County sheriff's department.

On February 6, 2007, an arrest warrant was issued for Baldwin in Newport Beach, CA, by the Orange County Superior Court for his failure to show up for an arraignment stemming from an auto-theft charge. At the time, Baldwin was in Detroit, Michigan filming a movie.

He turned himself into police on February 20 and pleaded not guilty to his charges. He remains free on bail.
