Sat, Dec 29, 2012 -- 1:00 PM Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin

David Letterman & Michael Douglas -- Alec talks with late-night legend David Letterman. Letterman admits that for a good portion of the past 30 years he "didn't do anything else." Things have changed now; he has "no patience for meetings" and avoids making decisions on the show, preferring to save that energy to explore the world with his 8-year-old son. Visiting Michael Douglas at his New York apartment, the two dive into what makes a great director a smart producer, and why playing the villain is the much more satisfying part.
