First produced on Broadway in 1989, A Few Good Men follows the court-martial of two U.S. Marines who killed a fellow Marine at the Guantánamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, casting is at last underway for Aaron Sorkin's A Few Good Men on NBC. Baldwin will also be involved as an executive producer along with Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, and Aaron Sorkin.

NBC, which has scored success with live musicals like "The Sound of Music" and "Peter Pan" is turning its attention to drama.

The date for A Few Good Men will be in the second quarter of 2018, NBC said. Sorkin will be writing the teleplay for the NBC production. "Having him play this role - live onstage for a television audience - is a dream come true", Sorkin said.

Greenblatt described Baldwin, whose spoof of President Donald Trump has been a ratings boon to "Saturday Night Live" as "the gift that keeps on giving at NBC". He also now hosts NBC's The Match Game, and has discussed returning to Saturday Night Live to continue his Trump impression after saying he was retiring it.

For Baldwin - and certainly NBC - there's some symbolic importance here beyond the role. "The Wiz Live!", and "Hairspray Live!" as well as next season's live production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" on Easter Sunday. Three years later he adapted the play as a film that went on to receive an Oscar nomination for best picture. "This will be a brand new take on Nathan Jessup and I expect that Alec is going to bust through TV screens and right into living rooms". The role of Colonel Jessup was made famous by Jack Nicholson in the 1992 film adaptation of Sorkin's play which also starred Tom Cruise and Demi Moore.
