Alec Baldwin has a piece of rock to call his own.

On Monday, the Academy Award nominee and two-time Emmy winner received the 2,433rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

He's pretty much a Jack Donaghy of all trades (host of the New York City Philharmonic's weekly radio show, anybody?), but this particular honor is for his TV accomplishments, which in addition to absolutely killing it on 30 Rock includes 15 stints as host of Saturday Night Live, two seasons on Knot's Landing, numerous guest appearances and cohosting last year's Oscars with Steve Martin.

"I didn't think this was something I wanted to do, to commit to a show, to sign a contract for years on end," Baldwin said at today's ceremony in front of the Eva Longoria-partnered restaurant Beso on Hollywood Boulevard, thanking the cast and crew of 30 Rock for their general awesomeness.

"I made films and worked in the theater and there's a lot of diversity there that's kind of an advantage. But then I did Will & Grace and had the best time of my life," he added. "Working with Megan [Mullally] on that show...I realized it was a lot of fun. It inspired me to do this."

Mullally was there to celebrate her sitcom protégé, who was nominated for two Emmys as a guest star on Will & Grace.

"I'm kind of blown away," Baldwin concluded. "My daughter has the distinction of both of her parents have this. I think it's kind of cool for my kid."

Kim Basinger's star is about seven blocks away and, no, Baldwin did not go over and urinate on it after the ceremony.
