Chicago, IL - Actor Alec Baldwin stars in a funny and powerful new YouTube video in which he demands the right to marry Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

"A vast and malicious whisper campaign has emerged, alleging that I can't marry Jesse because I'm not gay. I hear people saying this behind my back on a daily basis. There is one reason and one reason only why I can't marry Jesse in New York next year: the New York State Senate."

Baldwin's video, produced for, is ostensibly a response to Ferguson's recent video in which he proclaims that he has a huge crush on and wants to marry Baldwin.

In his own video, Baldwin argues that gays and lesbians should have the right to marry.

"I'm going to do something about it, and so should you. Because no one tells a New Yorker that they can't marry Jesse Tyler Ferguson," Baldwin says.
