Paparazzi attacker, frequent Huffington Post blogger, and Words With Friends/Twitter addict Alec Baldwin may seriously be considering a run for Mayor of the biggest city in the United States, says little brother Billy.

During an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tuesday night, the younger Baldwin said his brother Alec; who spends most of his time acting as a star on NBC's "30 Rock," has political aspirations that could be "very real."

Baldwin has teased on and off about running for Mayor of New York City for sometime, telling the New York Times in August 2011 that he could see himself running, just not in 2013 for he wants to first finish work on his television show, “30 Rock” and then go back to school.

Alec mumbled again in November about running for the office, then said in December that he lost his "appetite"for politics, then told Bloomberg Television in April that he "would love" to run for mayor when his contract with NBC ends.

It has since been announced that 2012-2013 will be the final "30 Rock" season.

"On one level, I think it's very real. He's very committed, he's very bright, and knowledgeable, and I think he could do it, and he could run," brother Billy Baldwin said on CNN Tuesday. "On the other hand, I'm not quite sure if he's cut from the proper cloth, because it requires a lot of tolerance, and a lot of patience."

When Morgan supported concerns about Baldwin's temper, his brother reminded the host though that "John McCain and Rudy Giuliani are quite the same and they are very successful and highly effective politicians.”

It can be said that Baldwin has previously expressed liberal political viewpoints.
