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." "On the other hand, I'm not quite sure if he's cut from the proper cloth, because it requires a lot of tolerance, and a lot of patience."
A former congressional aide on Capitol Hill, tonight's guest was a political science major at Binghamton University, with strong views on the current state of the nation. Though he classifies himself as a Barack Obama supporter, and would "definitely" like to see the incumbent reelected, he says he's been disappointed "on a number of levels" with the performance of the president:
"You look at what's going on on Wall Street right now, you thought Madoff was the end of it, you thought the meltdown was the end of it, and all of a sudden we're nine billion in the hole, at J.P. Morgan alone, and credit default swaps and derivatives, and they're back at it again," he tells Piers Morgan. "If we go through this again...we're going to have people taking to the streets, the way they did after the Rodney King conviction."
Watch the clip, listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as Baldwin opens up about his new project, and shares exclusive details from inside the recent wedding of his brother Alec and Hilaria Thomas.
