Top Four Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live Skits; Will He Run For Governor of Ohio?

A Wii Problem: Can Alec Baldwin Go From Actor to Governor?

Minnesota has Al Franken for senator, so why can't Ohio get Alec Baldwin to run for governor? The timing is perfect. The 51-year-old actor has already announced his plans to retire from acting after 30 Rock wraps up in 2012, and he hasn't exactly been shy about voicing his political ambition. Now an opportunity has fallen in his lap like a hot movie script.


Alec confirmed to Playboy that an Ohio law firm approached him to run for governor, essentially saying, "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."

Sounds easy! But he's the first to point out there are more than a few skeletons in his closet, telling Playboy, "If I do [go into politics], these guys will have a field day. I've given them so much crap to use against me — Canteen Boy, Schweddy balls. I just did the Wii sketch. Did you see that? . . . Google or YouTube that one; it's just ridiculous. While I'm doing it, I'm thinking, If I run for political office, they'll have a forest of material to kill me with."

So we Googled it. And he's right, personal problems aside, his Saturday Night Live clips alone are primed to offend the most humorless Ohioans and, um, anyone with Schweddy
balls . . .

What does he have to lose, most politicians wait till they are in office before the skeletons come out of the closet, he just got his out of the way.
