Alec Baldwin could be next governor of Ohio

Tbd-alecbaldlwin070909 Could the man behind Tracy Jordan's Meat Machine be running for governor of Ohio? Alec Baldwin told the latest issue of Playboy he's sure thinking about it loudly.

“I’ll put it this way. The desire is there; that’s one component. The other component is opportunity," the 30 Rock actor said. "A law firm in a liberal Democratic bastion in Ohio state politics sent me a binder with a cover letter that read, ‘Mr. Baldwin, here’s who we represent, the kinds of cases we handle, our credentials in Ohio state politics. We want you to move to Ohio and run for governor. We will launch your career.’”

Would that mean Jack Donaghy could soon be calling Ohio legislators rude, thoughtless little pigs? Not if he could run in New Jersey or Connecticut first.

“I’d love to run against Joe Lieberman. I have no use for him," he said. And even those places are a pipe dream. "But it’s all fantasy. I’m a carry-me-out-in-a-box New Yorker."
