Alec Baldwin in Talks to Host MSNBC Show

Alec Baldwin is in talks to host a new weekly show for MSNBC, sources confirm to Variety.

Baldwin’s show would air Friday nights at 10:00 PM ET, says Mediaite, which first reported the news. Currently, Lawrence O’Donnell hosts a show on MSNBC at 10:00 PM, but only Monday through Thursday.

Mediaite says the deal is done, but MSNBC is not prepared to announce. A rep for the cabler didn’t comment.

In addition to Baldwin being right at home politically on the liberal-leaning net, he has a long history with the Peacock, having appeared on “30 Rock” for seven seasons, been a mainstay at “Saturday Night Live,” and hosted the net’s airing of the Live Earth concert in 2007.
