Alec Baldwin is thinking about running for mayor of New York.
The 53-year-old actor told The New York Times he's been in touch with universities to enroll in a master's program about politics and government.
We love that Baldwin wants to get educated before going political! That's the smart way to do it!
A 2013 run wouldn't be possible because of his 30 Rock schedule, but Baldwin is thinking ahead.
A longtime New Yorker, Baldwin has been a political activist in the past.
