Alec Baldwin, speaking to Bloomberg TV from Capitol Hill today:
“I have a contract to work for NBC through some point in 2013. We don’t know how long the season is going to be or how long we are going to work, but I do know that there is one more season to do next year, contractually. Right now I am just looking at finishing what is in front of me. The only thing that I can suggest is that two years, four years, is an eternity in an American political life. Let’s see what things are like in 2014 and maybe I can find some opportunity. I would love to do it because I have had a job that has been very good to me. I have been very lucky and very successful in a lot of ways, but I would still like to consider doing that because I do a lot of this kind of work now and I wonder what it would be like if I had a staff and budget to do it.”
