Star hints at politics run
Baldwin, star of hit TV series 30 Rock, hints he may seek political office once his contract on the show has expired. The staunch Democrat tells Bloomberg News that he would ‘‘love to’’ run for office. ‘‘I have a contract with NBC to work for them through some point in 2013 . . . Let’s see what things are like in 2014 and maybe I can find some opportunity,’’ he says. Tina Fey has reassured 30 Rock fans Baldwin (pictured) would stay on the show for at least another season. There has been speculation the actor would leave the Emmywinning comedy. But the show creator insisted her lead male star has no plans to leave in the immediate future. ‘‘We’re all in this together till the end. I think he just maybe means that the end of the show is visible on the horizon,’’ she says. ‘‘We can’t do this for 35 years. We’d love to keep going . . . but you don’t want to see me with a grey stripe (in my hair), eating a slice of pizza, going on dates.’’ Saturdays, 5.30pm, 7.30pm, TV1.
