Alec Baldwin Is Officially Not Running for Mayor of NYC

Alec Baldwin isn’t going to be Mayor of New York, saying that he has lost his appetite for politics during his weekly podcast.

The 30 Rock star said, “I’ve lost my appetite. Plus the people that are running for mayor – I know this is terrible – I look at them and I don’t see myself in that crowd. They’re like a guy on a date that you can tell he just can’t wait to get his hand up your blouse before even the lights go out in the theatre. They’re all just so horny for it. Horny for their own ascension. Whereas for me, I’ve got a job now – which, I’ve got a good job. Is the most creative thing in the world? Am I doing The Insider with Michael Mann? Am I doing some edgy, like finely chiseled social drama? No. Am I doing To Kill a Mockingbird? No, I’m doing a sitcom. But we have fun, and it’s a family and I love being in New York and I’ve got a life. It’s been a great harbor for me in my life. Give this up for what? I give up money and fame and position and success, I give up this wonderful life I have now in exchange for the chance to really change things. Yeah, I’m not quite sure you can any more.”
