If Alec Baldwin really, really wants to run for New York mayor when Michael Bloomberg's term is up, he's got at least one celebrity backer: Chevy Chase.
While the politically minded "Community" actor says there's "no chance" that he'd ever run for office, he does tell Scoop that he'd support Baldwin in a bid for mayor.
"Alec is really, really intelligent and knows politics. I’d vote for Alec in a second," he said. However, Chase doesn't see Baldwin leaving acting for office, even after his "30 Rock" contract expires next year.
"I don’t think (running) is going to happen, I don’t see him wanting that necessarily, unless he thinks that can be a road to the presidency or something, but I don’t see that happening at this time in his life. He’s doing pretty well already, but I tell you this. This guy’s really intelligent and articulate and knows what he’s talking about."
