Alec Baldwin to Replace David Attenborough for 'Frozen Planet'

Even with “Frozen Planet” being Sir David Attenborough’s last big-feature narration, Discovery still feels compelled to replace the venerable naturalist with the voice of an American celebrity.

Granted, it’s a good one – a very good one. Alec Baldwin, the same guy who did a fantastic job with NatGeo’s epic mini-series “Great Migrations”, has been tapped for the job. There are far worse choices (Oprah proving she was one of them with “LIFE”), but I would have still liked to have seen the 85-year-old Attenborough not replaced for once. Alas.

“Frozen Planet”, which broke ratings records when it premiered in the UK this past October, is sure to follow in the footsteps of its eyeball-dazzling predecessors (“Planet Earth”, “LIFE”, “Human Planet”) when it debuts in March. You can check out the gorgeous trailer for the series below.

    Sir David`s closing message at the end of the series was about climate change and it`s far reaching impact on our planet. I wonder if Alec Baldwin will be allowed to mention this unpopular topic in a land full of deniers.

    Absolute disgrace ! Have Americans stopped talking ENGLISH? or is the commentary not jingoistic enough for our american cousins.?
    Sir David is the greatest and longest serving environmentalist on the planet . It was he who brought Nature to the medium of television and the attention of people all over the world
    Shame on Discovery if thats how you respect greatness..

    i have just watched (in the US) this programme which i watched when i lived in the Uk and as a Brit i have to say that the rest of the world has lost out on what is a precious resource of the BBC that the UK have enjoyed for many a decade – shame on you Discovery channel – you made a stupid mistake employing Mr Baldwin – his limit was reached with “the cat in the hat”
