Billy Baldwin on Alec's political aspirations: "I'm not quite sure if he's cut from the proper cloth, because it requires a lot of tolerance..."

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes a charter member of the famed Baldwin clan, 49-year-old William.

The second-youngest of the four brothers, "Billy" Baldwin offers his perspective on older brother Alec's potential political future:

"On one level, I think it's very real. He's very committed, he's very bright, and knowledgeable, and I think he could do it, and he could run," says the star of such films as "Flatliners" and "Backdraft."

"No one is forced to buy a car," insisted Bachmann. "You don't have to buy a car. But if you buy a car, you need to be responsible and have insurance. But in America, this isn't a matter of buying something. This is being forced to purchase a product that government tells us to."

Proving that the program is nothing short of flexible, and comfortable covering a variety of topics, the episode later switched gears from medical to musical, welcoming Glenn Frey.

Joining the host live, and in person, the founding member of the "Eagles" shared his insight into the evolution of his industry, comparing the current process of record promotion to the process he experienced when he first entered the music business:
