Alec Baldwin, on a future career in politics: "I do want to run for office one day"

In a candid and exclusive interview with Piers Morgan airing tonight at 9pm ET/PT, actor Alec Baldwin shares the timeline of his potential run for office: "There's so many different things that happen in the political world over the course of two years," says Baldwin. "In that amount of time – in maybe the not too distant future – I'll survey that again and think about is there an opportunity for me."

In the meantime, the two-time Emmy Award winner says he still has some unfinished business left on his day job.

"I'm not done doing what I'm doing now," he tells Piers Morgan. "I've got at least a couple more years of this kind of work I want to do, on the drawing board." Tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening at 9pm ET/PT as Baldwin discusses the Republican presidential race and reveals what exactly happened when he played "Words With Friends" on an airplane.

    Baldwin credits Obama with Dow 12,000? Clera he understands nothing about how FED money through the big banks is driving equities and commodities.

    Why are we listening to a man who calls his daughter a "pig"? Who does that?

    Hi Piers –

    Alec Baldwin may in fact have "correct opinions" on certain points this evening, however in he is in my opinion a sycophant/poser who has no original ideas. He is definitely not a statesman. It's a sad commentary on our "culture" that popular figures get so much respect and reverence outside their area of expertise simply because they are "popular". Alec Baldwin is an actor. Do you think he could persuade you to hire him to fix your car the next time is breaks down? Read Plato dude, and stop contributing to the dummying down of serious subjects. Cheers, Bret Smith

    Piers Morgan is even more of a pandering c**t than his predecessor. I would shove the phone down his puftah throat if he or Baldwin caused my flight to be delayed.

    I will definitely vote for Obama, but Alec Baldwin?? Does he have any credibility at all?? Get over his problems with his spoiled teenager... maybe not the best way to handle it, but..... is that really a big deal??
    Statesman?? are you kidding?

    Alec Baldwin is a great actor, but that's it! Celebrities should stay out of politics all together! If we Americans are so desperate for a leader we should start picking out some of the common people who actually live real lives and work 9-5 jobs. Who don't make promises that they know they cant keep and are overall capable of living on a budget.
