Actors Get Political

My homeboy alec Alec Baldwin has New York City mayoral aspirations, but he isn’t ready to run just yet. According to The New York Times, Baldwin wants to finish his work on NBC’s “30 Rock”(his contract ends in Spring 2012) and enroll in a master’s program in politics and government before entering the world of campaigns and elections.

It’s not unheard of for actors to have political ambition: Clint Eastwood was mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea from 1986 to 1988; Arnold Schwarzenegger recently ended his time as California governor and most famously of all, Ronald Reagan was President of the United States from 1981 to 1989.

At the moment, politics of all kinds seems to be on the minds of the acting community. Back Stage reported last week that SAG had announced its official list of candidates for the upcoming national officer and national board elections, which included Tony Shalhoub and Lewis Black .
