Following in the footsteps of other Celebrities who used their fame to propel them into politics, Alec Baldwin is currently considering running for Governor of Ohio.
Ronald Regan, Jesse Ventura, Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger did it, and there are certainly enough Baldwins left to carry on the acting legacy if one drops out to get into politics, so why not?
Baldwin, a staunch Liberal, told Playboy:
Playboy: Will you run for office?
Baldwin: “I’ll put it this way. The desire is there; that’s one component. The other component is opportunity. A law firm in a liberal Democratic bastion in Ohio state politics sent me a binder with a cover letter that read, “Mr. Baldwin, here’s who we represent, the kinds of cases we handle, our credentials in Ohio state politics. We want you to move to Ohio and run for governor. We will launch your career.”
