Attorney Russell Yankwitt said Baldwin beat the deadline with his final payment Friday. He said Baldwin was helped by a loan from a friend Yankwitt would not identify.

Baldwin starred in the 1995 movie "The Usual Suspects." More recently, he appeared in TV's "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" program. His brothers Alec, William and Daniel are also actors.
