Alec Baldwin is getting ready to retire from acting. The Democratic actor just sat down with 60 Minutes to discuss his future in . . . politics!
Now that he's turning 50, Alec says he's ripe for elected office. I say —now that he's 50, he also has more skeletons in his not-so-private closet.
But, Alec says he's ready for the public scrutiny, and will be more careful about his actions. He explained:
You can pretty much bet all you own that I would never leave another voicemail message for my daughter that wasn’t just like something out of a Rogers and Hammerstein score.
Want to hear more of this? The whole interview will air this Sunday.
Alec has had politics on the brain for a while. Back in 2004, Alec had strong words for fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, saying "if the largest, most economically significant state in America could elect a man who is totally unqualified for the job, then they can elect anyone."
Going back even further, in 2000 Alec said he would move to Canada if George W. Bush was elected. Guess he couldn't find a flight!
Do you think Americans want to cast movie stars as their leaders? Would you vote for Alec?
