“I once pitched a show to (Fox president of entertainment) Kevin Reilly. I told him I wanted to bring back space travel on TV, like “Star Trek,” but that I wanted to have sex in the space capsule and get really adult. In the show, the space capsule will have left Earth, and because of global warming, the Earth is dying. I’m the commander of this ship and I say, “We can never go back!” So Reilly is sitting there listening very patiently and finally says, “Well, we’re never going to do that.”
– Alec Baldwin during a roundtable discussion of television with several other actors and The Hollywood Reporter.
(To which Rainn Wilson replied, “I would love to have sex in outer space.” )
