Alec Baldwin could be in the running to become a new star for NBC’s late night programming, according to a report from the New York Times. Baldwin’s already got a decent relationship with the network, following his successful stint in the popular comedy series ’30 Rock,’ which landed him with two Best Actor in a Comedy Emmy Awards. Additionally, he’s got form when it comes to interviewing, with his WNYC radio podcast, Here’s The Thing, in which he interviewed the likes of David Letterman, Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig, Chris Rock, Lena Dunham.

The late night line-up for NBC looks be in the middle of a massive refurb right now. Last week, the announcement came that Jimmy Fallon would be leaving his Late Night show and taking over from Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. Speculation over who will replace Fallon is rife and NYT suggest that “the mutual interest between Mr. Baldwin and NBC about opening a late-night spot for the actor could result in three new late-night hosts for NBC.”

Baldwin has long been considered a quality guest on late night TV chat shows; is this time for the tables to finally be turned and for Baldwin to take up the mantle as a regular late night chat show host? He might have to get used to the paparazzi though, which he didn;t seem so happy about at his recent visit to The Late Show. Baldwin + Paparazzi hasn;t been a terribly successful combination of late though...
