Alec Baldwin is eyeing a possible run for office once his “30 Rock” stint is over in 2012, he tells Playboy.
“The desire is there,” he tells the magazine, before going on to analyze a myriad of New York political scenarios that would have to play out before he would actually run.
He says: “Who thought Eliot Spitzer would go down the way he did? Senator Hillary Clinton left to serve as secretary of state. Two of the biggest forces gone. Maybe Andrew Cuomo will run for one of their old seats. How much longer will Chuck Schumer stay as senator? After 2013 Bloomberg will be gone. What happens then? Do I run for Congress on Long Island? What’s Tim Bishop going to do? He represents my district. People get sick, die. They’re offered lucrative deals and want to cash in and make money for their retirement. People misstep. Unfortunately, an opportunity for me may mean bad things for someone else. I don’t wish that.”
