In season four of Castle, Baldwin was reunited with former Firefly castmate Nathan Fillion. He played Detective Ethan Slaughter in the 21st episode called "Headhunters" which aired April 16, 2012. He returned to Castle in season eight, episode six "Cool Boys".
Baldwin won a SyFy Genre Award in 2006 for Best Supporting Actor/Television for his role as Jayne Cobb in the television series Firefly.
Baldwin was cast as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman in Superman: Doomsday, which is based on DC Comics' The Death of Superman. He also voices the character in the massively multiplayer online game DC Universe Online.
Baldwin has a role as a voice actor in the Xbox 360 games Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST, the latter putting him in the role of Corporal Taylor "Dutch" Miles. Baldwin also appears as a voice actor in Half Life 2: Episode 2 for various resistance soldiers and citizens.

Politically, he has been a registered Democrat since 1980, but states that he re-examined his views after being given a copy of David Horowitz's book Radical Son. He now considers himself a "small government conservative libertarian", and has contributed to The Huffington Post and Big Hollywood.
He is an avid supporter of Ride 2 Recovery, a bike-riding organization set up for the rehabilitation of wounded veterans. He participated in the 2009 "Don't Mess With Texas Challenge" bike ride.
Baldwin is credited with having originated the GamerGate hashtag. His role in GamerGate controversy led to a petition to prevent Baldwin from speaking at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo. The convention's management eventually decided after much deliberation and in response to a more successful counter petition that Baldwin's political stance should not affect his guest appearance. In late 2015 Baldwin endorsed Ted Cruz for the 2016 United States presidential election via Twitter.
