’30 Rock’ actor Alec Baldwin is in talks to host a new TV show on MSNBC.
The ’30 Rock’ actor has been approached by MSNBC to present a weekly programme, which “will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics” airing on Friday nights, according to Mediate.
He said: “I have [been offered a role in a superhero movie], but I won’t mention which one. I don’t want to undo somebody because they hired someone else to do it. But they asked me to play a villain in one of these Marvel Comics movies.
“I wasn’t available. They wanted me to work a certain time, and because of my wife’s pregnancy, I had to turn down two films this summer that I wanted to do.”
While Alec is reluctant to name the role he declined, it’s possible the actor was approached for a role in James Gunns’ intergalactic movie, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, which is currently being filmed at Shepperton Studios in England.
He will next be seen starring alongside Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett in Woody Allen’s critically acclaimed drama, ‘Blue Jasmine’.
The film tells the story of a rich and glamorous New York City housewife whose life is turned upside down when her high-powered husband is exposed for running a Ponzi scheme.
