Stephen Baldwin Defends Brother Alec

Alec Baldwin's brother talks about his hospital visit

Alec Baldwin's younger brother Stephen Baldwin talks to "Extra" about Alec's quick trip to the hospital on Thursday.

"He's great," Baldwin told "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli. He said the hospital visit was a "miscommunication," adding, "Everything's fine... there was nothing weird, nothing stupid."

Alex was rushed to a NYC hospital early Thursday morning after his daughter called 911. The actor was released a short time later.

Stephen says his big brother is prepping for his big gig as Oscar co-host. "I was talking to him the other night, he said, 'You know, Steve Martin and I have been talking about some of the dialogue.'"
