Carl Reiner and Alec Baldwin to Present the SAG 49th Life Achievement Award to Dick Van Dyke at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards(R)

LOS ANGELES (January 15, 2013) - Veteran writer, director, producer and actor Carl Reiner, along with seven-time SAG Award(R) winner and 18-time nominee Alec Baldwin, will present the SAG 49th Life Achievement Award to Dick Van Dyke at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, executive producer and director Jeff Margolis announced today.

SAG-AFTRA is honoring Van Dyke for his career achievement and humanitarian accomplishments. Past recipients of the Life Achievement Award include Mary Tyler Moore, Ernest Borgnine, Betty White, James Earl Jones, Charles Durning, Julie Andrews, Shirley Temple Black, James Garner, Karl Malden, Clint Eastwood, Edward Asner, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, Sidney Poitier, Kirk Douglas, Elizabeth Taylor, Angela Lansbury, Robert Redford and George Burns.

In 1961, Reiner and Van Dyke collaborated together on "The Dick Van Dyke Show," which Reiner created, based on his experiences as a comedy writer, and in which he co-starred as the toupee-wearing producer, Alan Brady. The series, which broke new ground in television and is said to have ushered in the golden age of the situation comedy, would become one of the most famous and best loved sitcoms in television history. Adored by audiences and critics alike, the series earned four Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy(R) Awards during the show's five-year run, seven Emmys and a nomination for Reiner, three Emmys for Van Dyke and two Emmys and a nomination for co-star Mary Tyler Moore (recipient of the 2012 Life Achievement Award). In 2004, Reiner executive produced and co-starred in "The Dick Van Dyke Show Revisited," which CBS Television produced along with TV Land. Among Reiner's many other notable credits: directing "The Jerk," "All of Me" and "Oh, God!"; performing in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" and the "Ocean's" movies opposite George Clooney and Matt Damon; and authoring such books as "Enter Laughing," "All Kinds of Love" and "How Paul Robeson Saved My Life."

Baldwin is the recipient of seven Screen Actors Guild Awards. This year, he is a two-time nominee for his role as Jack Donaghy on "30 Rock" and as a member of the cast. He began his career on the NBC soap opera "The Doctors" and later starred in "Knots Landing." He has appeared in more than 40 films including "Beetlejuice," "Working Girl," "The Hunt for Red October," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "The Cooler," for which he was Oscar nominated, and "It's Complicated," with Meryl Streep. Baldwin was most recently seen opposite Tom Cruise in "Rock of Ages" and heard as the voice of North in the animated feature "Rise of the Guardians." Later this year, he'll star in the Woody Allen comedy "Blue Jasmine" opposite Cate Blanchett. Baldwin is a dedicated supporter of numerous causes related to public policy and the arts. As the inaugural SAG Foundation ambassador, Baldwin is helping to raise awareness of the Foundation's philanthropic programs and to encourage support and contributions from those within the industry as well as the general public.

The Emmy-winning Van Dyke made his television-acting debut in 1957 and Broadway debut in 1959. The following year his career soared when he was cast opposite Chita Rivera in the Broadway production of "Bye Bye Birdie." His performance as Albert Peterson earned Van Dyke a Tony(R) Award and brought him to the attention of Reiner, who signed him for a pilot opposite newcomer Moore. In 1963, Van Dyke spent his series' hiatus shooting the film version of "Bye Bye Birdie" in 1963 followed by "What a Way to Go" and Disney's 1964 musical classic "Mary Poppins," which won five Academy Awards(R), including one for star Julie Andrews (recipient of the 2006 Life Achievement Award). Van Dyke earned a Golden Globe(R) nomination and, with Andrews, a Grammy(R). A run of films followed including "Lt. Robin Crusoe, USN," "Divorce American Style," "Fitzwilly," "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and "The Comic," directed by Reiner, among others. He returned to movies again in 1979's "The Runner Stumbles," 1990's "Dick Tracy" and more recently, the Ben Stiller comedy "Night at the Museum" (2006). On the small screen, his numerous roles include the crime-solving physician Dr. Mark Sloan in "Diagnosis: Murder," which ran from 1993 to 2001. The ever-energetic Van Dyke has written several books and in 2000, formed Dick Van Dyke & the Vantastix, an a cappella quartet. Among the venues they've played are the Disney Concert Hall and Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., with the President and First Lady in the front row.

For nearly 20 years Van Dyke has been committed to volunteering at Los Angeles' century-old shelter, The Midnight Mission. He helped raise millions for their new building program and is there every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and times in between offering comfort and cheer. He is passionate about raising funds for music and art programs for public schools and became a spokesperson for the National Reye's Syndrome Foundation in 1967 after losing a granddaughter to that disease. In 2010, he was named the first spokesperson for the Cell Therapy Foundation.
