So much more Alec Baldwin gossip now he’s got a Twitter!
There has been a lot of disappointing talk this week about Rep. Anthony Weiner not running for mayor of New York City after all. Baldwin, 53, has always been unafraid of politics, and the man who plays the comically conservative Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock has not ruled out running for real life office as the New York City Mayor.
The Los Angeles Times quotes Baldwin’s shiny new Twitter feed regarding his mayoral aspirations:
“It’s a long way till November of 2013,” the actor said Wednesday on his recently activated Twitter account, where he had already opined on the Weiner and John Edwards scandals (“Wiener should not resign”; “I lend you my phone to lie to your wife about an affair that could wreck your campaign. Is the phone call a campaign contribution?”) as well as offered his political opinions in general.
A rep for Baldwin later confirmed the actor is considering a run, and he has stated earlier he plans to leave 30 Rock when his contract expires in 2012. (Which is so totally not a long way, Alec!)
Would you vote for Alec Baldwin? Would he be a good NYC mayor?
