Reports: Baldwin made prop gun on set of Oakland film

Alec Baldwin was given a prop gun by a crew member who had a previous safety complaint against him, according to reports.

Baldwin was photographed holding the weapon in a car on the set of new film “Blindspotting,” directed by Oakland native Carlos Lopez Estrada. Baldwin and a crew member had the weapon checked out of the vehicle and placed on a ground-level table where security was waiting to conduct an investigation, the Oakland Tribune reports.

According to the report, a former Oakland police officer told the Tribune the prop gun was meant for the “24” star as he worked on “24: Legacy” in 2016.

A representative for Baldwin could not be reached for comment Friday.

It is not clear whether the owner of the prop gun violated Oakland’s gun ordinances.

The FBI did not immediately return phone calls from the Tribune.

Production on “Blindspotting” began in Oakland last week and features Charlie Day, Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs in the title roles.

Star Daveed Diggs stars in “Blindspotting” as Collin, a drug dealer who gets mixed up in a gang fight with “Jerome” — who is played by ‘Tron: Legacy” star Charlie Day.

“‘Blindspotting’ is a drama centered around the small matters that live in every life; love, pain, friendship, family, race, violence, sex, death, addiction, romance, joy, and love. These are all the things that we find ourselves wrestling with in the gritty streets of Oakland,” according to the film’s website.

The film is due out in July.

Baldwin has starred in the Broadway musical “The Producers” and has a role in Fox’s upcoming Marvel series “Firefly.” He also had a supporting role in “Watchmen” and is starring in Hulu’s “11.22.63,” which premieres Nov. 1.
