alec baldwin golden globes getty Alec Baldwin for mayor of New York City?If “30 Rock’s” Jack Donaghy can run a fictional NBC, surely the actor who plays him — Alec Baldwin — would make a perfectly fine mayor of New York City?

Baldwin, who has long flirted with the idea of running for office, thinks the 2013 mayor’s race may be wide open now that prospective Democratic candidate Anthony Weiner has been pretty much sidelined with a sexting scandal.

“Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted,'” an unnamed friend of Baldwin’s tells The Daily.

Current mayor Michael Bloomberg isn’t expected to run again in 2013. In the past, Baldwin has also said he’d consider a run for governor of New York.  

Recently, Baldwin joined micro-blogging site Twitter. We’d just like to be among the first to warn him that the whole world is watching.
