Alec Baldwin, Piers Morgan Tonight


From 30 Rock to late night?

Alec Baldwin is in talks as a possible addition to NBC's late-night lineup, a source confirms to E! News. While there has been "nothing close" to a deal or offer made by the network to the actor, the source tells E! News, adding: "There have been conversations."

But it doesn't mean it's anywhere near a slam dunk.

According to the New York Times, who first reported that Baldwin was in talks to potentially join the network's lineup, the actor might be in line to take over NBC's last late-night spot, which is currently occupied by The Voice host Carson Daly's Last Call.

A source tells E! News, "People have been impressed with his radio podcast series and have thought about him for these opportunities."

This would be just the latest change in NBC's late-night lineup. Last week, the network officially confirmed that Jay Leno will be retiring from The Tonight Show, with Late Night's Jimmy Fallon set to replace him in 2014; Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers is being eyed to take over for Fallon.

Still, it's not clear that it'll all pan out: One source familiar with the situation downplayed the New York Times report, saying it's not true that Baldwin is getting a late-night show.

Baldwin, who is currently starring in Oprhans on Broadway, won two Emmys for his work as Jack Donaghy on NBC's critically beloved sitcom 30 Rock and created and hosts the popular podcast "Here's the Thing" for WNYC radio in New York.
