Alec Baldwin reportedly in talks with NBC for late night spot

The "30 Rock" actor is the latest name to come up in the ongoing television programming changes

Alec Baldwin has been busy after his 7-season run as Jack Donaghy in NBC's "30 Rock." Nowadays, you'll find him on the Broadway stage, but soon, you might see Baldwin back on NBC--as a late night television show host.

From the New York Times:

The Emmy-winning actor is in the mix for a spot in NBC’s late-night lineup, one executive involved in the network’s program planning said. The executive asked not to be identified because the talks were still in initial stages.

The most likely landing place for a show hosted by Mr. Baldwin would be in the latest of NBC’s entries, the show now called “Last Call.” That half-hour interview program currently stars Carson Daly.

The news comes in the midst of an industry-wide late night show reshuffling, as Jimmy Fallon was recently tapped as Jay Leno's replacement on "Tonight," Leno is rumored to go to Fox, and Seth Myers is speculated to take Fallon's spot on "Late Night."
