Nothing is confirmed, but Alec Baldwin recently talked to my fellow E! News correspondent Ashlan Gorse on the red carpet at an Elle event, and revealed that he is getting a new love interest later this season.
Baldwin, who was just announced as cohost of this year's Oscars with Steve Martin, wouldn't name names, but he did give us a hint: "I won't say who it is, but someone very near to us who may be coming on to play my girlfriend for four episodes."
Well, we tallied up all the attractive ladies in the vicinity of Alec on the red carpet—contenders included Renee Zellweger, Becki Newton, Emily Blunt, Diane Kruger, Brenda Strong, Zoe Saldana, Julianne Moore, Katie Holmes and Julie Andrews—and after doing a little top-secret detective work, we have reason to believe the lady in question is none other than Julianne Moore.
Although we do think Julie Andrews hooking up with Jack Donaghy would be high-larious, Ms. Moore is quite perfect for the part. She's age-appropriate, hot, funny and lives in New York. (Alec himself ruled out Renée.)
Julianne's rep tells us, "You would need to contact NBC for an official answer," and NBC isn't revealing the identity of Donaghy's new GF, but Moore remains a definite possibility.
Not to mention...
Julianne has two children and told Cookie magazine she picks movie roles that film in the summer so her family can accompany her. (Meaning, if she were to work at another time of year, it'd have to be, say, a hit TV show that conveniently films in New York City and could nab her an Emmy nod.) "My husband and I are very fortunate because we have flexible jobs," she told the mag. "If you talk to parents, that's what they're trying to do -- have as much flexibility as possible."
So again, nothing is confirmed, but since it's 30 Rock (love) and Donaghy (double love) we just can't help ourselves but to throw this rumor out there anyway to you fans. Guilty as charged!
Oh, and in case you didn't hear, EW has broken the news that James Franco will be coming to the Rock, too. So, see, the movie stars are coming.
So what do you think? Do Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin make a good match? Or will it be another lovely lady listed above? Place your bets below!
