Alec Baldwin to Host Chat Show

Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin is to host a chat show.

The 30 Rock actor has been confirmed to present a prime-time weekly talk show, entitled Up Late With Alec Baldwin, at 10pm on MSNBC in October in which he will give his take on current affairs and culture and interview guests on such subjects.

"I've been talking with Alec for a while and can't wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC. He's got such passion for ideas and what's going on in the world - he's going to be a great addition to our line-up," MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a statement.

Alec has been getting plenty of interview practice on his podcast Here's the Thing for radio station WNYC, which has seen him put the questions to several stars including Lena Dunham and Chris Rock, and he believes it has been the perfect preparation for his TV show. "After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field. I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television," he said.
