Alec Baldwin says he's seriously thinking about running for mayor of New York City!
Baldwin tells The New York Times he thinks people will forgive him for his past controversies:
"What I do for a living has provided people with an almost bottomless container of video clips of me doing the most asinine things [including] the tape of me and my daughter."
That was a reference to the notorious answering machine message Baldwin left for his then 11-year-old daughter Ireland four years ago.
"You are a rude, thoughtless, little pig!"
Father and daughter have since reconciled. The news of Baldwin's interest in running for political office comes on the heels of Kelsey Grammer saying he's also pondering a run for mayor of New York.
Grammer is a conservative Republican while Baldwin is a liberal Democrat.
Baldwin told the New York Times: "I am someone who is fully prepared for the fact that I could go into this and do it and completely have my [---] kicked."
If Baldwin does decide to run, it won't be in 2013. The actor is still under contract with 30 Rock.
