Cheyenne Jackson On Challenges Of Working With Alec Baldwin On '30 Rock' (VIDEO)

Cheyenne Jackson had a recurring role on "30 Rock," so when he stopped by "Watch What Happens: Live," a viewer asked him if he was surprised by Alec Baldwin's recent behavior. Baldwin has been getting into arguments with paparazzi in New York, which appear to have resulted in the cancellation of his MSNBC show after just five episodes.

While Jackson didn't address the recent controversies directly, he did offer some insight as to what it was like working with Baldwin. "You have to understand with Alec, that’s just the way he is," Jackson said. "He’s really, really great at what he does. What I learned from him was really good comic timing and don’t get in his light."

According to the New York Post, that diva behavior was another factor in the decision to end his show at MSNBC. "One insider said, ‘He would only show up at work an hour a week to prep for the show, and when he did turn up, he was in an angry mood, red-faced, and shouting at all the staff. And he said the air at 30 Rock was too dry, it was bad for his voice, he needed a humidifier,'" the newspaper reported.

It looks like Alec Baldwin is taking some time off to relax and decompress. His wife, Hilaria, posted a video of the couple in Hawaii on Instagram.

"Watch What Happens: Live" airs Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
