Alec Baldwin is a "wonderful guy" and a "wonderful father," according to his younger brother William ‘Billy’ Baldwin. In an interview given to Extra, Billy talked about the furor surrounding Alec’s troubling phone call to his daughter Ireland Baldwin, and the toll it has taken on their entire family.

Contrary to the portrayal offered up by Alec’s ex-wife, actress Kim Basinger, Alec enjoys a "happy, loving relationship" with his daughter, according to Billy. The younger Baldwin brother went on to express concern for his 11-year-old niece.

The interview will air Thursday.
