Alec Baldwin Rumored to Join NBC's Late-Night Lineup
With a new rumor that Alec Baldwin is headed to a late-night hosting gig, it’s not unreasonable to expect tuxedos on a nightly basis. According to The New York Times, Baldwin is in talks with NBC to join the network’s late-night talk show lineup.
An unnamed “executive involved in the network’s program planning” told the The New York Times that NBC was considering having Baldwin take over the time-slot currently occupied by Carson Daly’s Last Call, which airs weeknights at 1:35 a.m.
Daly also hosts NBC’s highly successful competitive singing reality show, The Voice. This rumored move to add Baldwin to the late-night lineup, comes after the recent news of Jay Leno’s departure from The Tonight Show, where he’ll be replaced by Jimmy Fallon.
Baldwin’s relationship with NBC has been a long one. The actor has guest-starred on Saturday Night Live 16 times and, most recently, has won two Emmy awards for his performance as Jack Donaghy on the network’s hit comedy 30 Rock.
