Alec Baldwin might run for mayor of New York City.
In the wake of potential 2013 mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner‘s fall from grace, the “30 Rock” actor and longtime Democrat is reportedly contemplating a bid to succeed Michael Bloomberg as the Big Apple’s big cheese.
A Baldwin friend says the politically engaged star believes Weinergate has disrupted the field enough for him to mull throwing his hat in the ring.
“Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted,’” the source tells The Daily. “The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill.”
So could Baldwin really run for mayor?
“I wouldn’t rule it out,” his rep tells THR.
