Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin Open To Hosting Late-night Talk Show

Alec Baldwin has confirmed reports he is considering a new role as a late-night Tv host, but doubts he could be friendly towards every guest.

The 30 Rock star is said to have been approached by bosses at U.S. Tv network Nbc about presenting a new interview-focused programme, and he insists he is open to the idea - although he's not convinced he has the perfect personality for the job.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It depends on the format and who it was for and what the schedule was like. Those guys that do talk shows have that terrible condition where they have to pretend everybody's special. I don't know if I could do that."

But Baldwin has high praise for comedian Jimmy Fallon, who is set to take over The Tonight Show after current host Jay Leno bows out next year (14).

He adds, "I think that Jimmy's going to be the greatest talk-show host, along with David Letterman and Johnny Carson, ever... Jimmy is clever and funny, but Jimmy also has tremendous warmth. He's got so much energy, and he's happy. He's got that gift."
