Alec Baldwin Rules out NYC Mayoral Run

NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Alec Baldwin says he won't run for New York City mayor -- because he isn't "horny" for the office like other candidates -- and suggested he may stay with "30 Rock," the show he had long been expected to leave after this season.

The announcement comes soon after a patch of bad publicity for Baldwin after a dispute on an American Airlines flight. He has previously described himself as "very, very interested" in running for office.

"I've lost my appetite," Baldwin said on his weekly WNYC podcast Wednesday, adding that the other candidates are "like a guy on a date that you can tell he just can't wait to get his hand up your blouse before even the lights go out in the theater."

He added: "They're all just so horny for it."

Baldwin's "30 Rock" contract ends after this season, and he said in October that he wanted to move on. But he also said at the time that he might do "a piece of the year" after this season.

On Wednesday, however, Baldwin suggested that sticking with "30 Rock" would be better than trying to run for mayor.

"Give this up for what?" he said. "I give up money and fame and position and success; I give up this wonderful life I have now in exchange for the chance to 'really change things?'... Yeah, I'm not quite sure you can anymore."

Baldwin was ejected from an American Airlines flight earlier this month after he refused to shut off his phone, which he was playing a game on.
