Sasso’s Brothers are Actors
All of Jane’s brothers are actors hence the general moniker adopted to refer to them; ‘The Baldwin Brothers.’ Apart from Alexander who has made the most name for himself, Daniel, Billy, and Stephen have also been part of a couple of Hollywood movies.
The three boys with the exemption of Alec were featured in Born on the Fourth of July directed by Oliver Stone.

Jane Sasso has been confused for Jane Lynch
The second sister of the Baldwin brothers has often been confused with Glee actress Jane Lynch. The latter Jane is from Illinois and has always been known by her last name. Additionally, she was born in 1960 and is known to be a comedian and author.
She is known for her role as Sue Sylvester in the 2009 comedy series, Glee. The role even earned her a Primetime Emmy Award.
As such, a couple of people and sites who know the Baldwin family to consist primarily of actors believed that their sister, Jane is also an actor. Given that both Janes were born a few years apart, it probably helped fuel the confusion.
However, it is important to note that Jane Sasso and Jane Lynch are two different people. While the Baldwin sister is a therapist and not an actor like her siblings, the Illinois-born is an actress and not related to the Baldwins.
Jane Sasso even made a joke about the confusion when she found out about it. She welcomed Jane Lynch into the family as her picture was put up under the biography of the Baldwin-Sasso woman.
