Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin To Run For Ny Mayor?

Alec Baldwin is considering running for mayor of New York.

The '30 Rock' star has held political aspirations for some time but reportedly became seriously interested in the 2013 mayoral race when Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner - who was widely expected to run - resigned from public life earlier this week after it was revealed he had sent saucy images of himself to women via twitter.

A friend of Alec told The Daily: "Alec said, 'Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted.' The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill."

The actor's representative Matthew Hiltzik then told The Hollywood Reporter, "I wouldn't rule it out."

Alec, 53, has previously spoken about his desire to run for public office and after revealing he will leave '30 Rock' in 2012, now could be the perfect time for him.

He has said in the past: ""There's no age limit on running for office, to a degree. It's something I might do, one day.

"I do believe that people want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle class would like to seek public office.".
