In the 2 minute teaser, George Stephanopoulos questions Baldwin, and it’s easy to see that Baldwin is very emotional in the interview.
And in one of the questions, he is asked about pulling the trigger, which many who were on set of Rust are suing for, due to the fact that Alec pulling the trigger was not in the script for that day.
And he responded:
“Well, the trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger.”
Of course this is gonna raise a lot of eyebrows, as I’m sure many wonder if the gun misfired, or if Baldwin is simply in denial.
Hollywood weapons expert Steve Wolf made an effort to explain what he thinks Baldwin meant, saying that with the style of prop gun the actor was using, any slight amount of pressure on the trigger could cause the gun to fire.
I guess we’ll find out for sure what Baldwin meant when the interview drops tomorrow.
