    Alec Baldwin: 'I Wasn't That Wild' About MSNBC Initially


    Alec Baldwin's new MSNBC show debuts October 11th, but the chronically grumpy actor recently admitted that he initially had some major reservations about signing with the network.

    Baldwin's "Up Late" will air Friday nights starting October 11. In a new interview with Politico, he said that he had wanted to do a version of his podcast for network television, and was approached by MSNBC president Phil Griffin after there were no timeslots on NBC.

    "I wasn’t that wild about that idea because MSNBC — which I’m a fan of — it had a certain stamp that I wasn’t sure I wanted to wear," Baldwin said. "It is this harshly political thing and, regardless of my own politics, I wasn’t sure I wanted to dine out on that."

    He said that Griffin eventually convinced him to do the show. Read the full story over at Politico.

    The announcement of "Up Late" came in September after weeks of speculation about whether MSNBC had struck a deal with Baldwin. The actor is known for his penchant for controversy, and has already gone after his fellow host Joe Scarborough.

    You'd probably have a lot more posts if you didn't keep getting banned and trying to sneak back in because you have nothing else to do with your life :jj:

    I will not deny that your actions indicate a significant level of loneliness, and that you have more posts than the vast majority of people here.

    :(
