Alec Baldwin Anthony Weiner MayorFrom PopEater: Are we in for another dose of 'Will I or won't I?' Donald Trump–style celebrity politics, or is Alec Baldwin legitimately planning a run for mayor of New York? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the '30 Rock' boss may be interested in throwing his hat into the New York mayoral election ring now that Rep. Anthony Weiner's Twitter scandal has most likely deterred him from running.

"Alec said, 'Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted," a friend of the actor told The Daily. "The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill."

And a high-profile candidate he is, the actor's Twitter account was on fire Wednesday afternoon after he tweeted, "It's a long way till November of 2013."
