The 30 Rock alum is in consideration for a spot on the network’s late-night lineup, an unnamed executive tells The New York Times.
Talks are only in the initial stages, but a likely home for Baldwin’s chatfest is already being singled out: The slot currently filled by Last Call, which is hosted by Carson Daly.
Should Baldwin take over the Voice host’s half-hour, it would represent a complete overhaul of the Peacock network’s nighttime talk offerings. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Late Night frontman Jimmy Fallon will succeed Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show in Spring 2014. Meanwhile, sources confirm that SNL‘s Seth Meyers is the odds-on-favorite to inherit Fallon’s former perch.
Baldwin is a frequent and favorite late-night show guest. Additionally, he created a podcast with WNYC radio in New York called “Here’s the Thing,” on which he’s interviewed David Letterman, Kristen Wiig, Chris Rock, Lena Dunham and many more.Follow @VladaGelman
