Alec Baldwin is on the defensive after what appears to be a serious breach of etiquette on set of Dinosaur Hunter.

The 45-year-old actor and comedian is said to have complained about the behaviour of at least one of his co-stars when filming began in China in May. Speaking to TMZ, Baldwin noted that “a dozen individuals on the last day of shooting … complained about [the] behavior of one particular actor, who somehow has been assigned to multiple scenes”.
The article does not name Baldwin or the co-star, but it does note that the actor “stayed in character” in the shoot and actually handed his gun back to the production staff and immediately requested they be given a gun too.
According to several reports, other dinosaur hunters were also involved in the drama, which is based on the true story of the British paratrooper who shot a beast with his teeth in the woods of China. Baldwin plays the soldier, Walter Taylor, while Kaya Scodelario plays his wife Dorothy, who, it is alleged, kept the animal’s remains safe.

According to tweets posted by the producers, the actor has been performing much “jealously” and “ranting” in scenes meant to represent life in the camp in the second world war. Some of his behaviour was apparently so “immature”, that it alarmed the cast and crew.
A spokesman for the production company, Artifex Productions, said they were aware of these matters but were constrained in what they could disclose about them.
