Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin has long been known for his political activism, but now he might finally be ready to run for office himself.

In an interview scheduled to air on tonight's episode of 'Parker Spitzer,' the '30 Rock' star said running for office is "something that I'm very, very interested in."

While Baldwin stressed that he didn't want to be viewed as anti-elitist, he said, "People want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle class ... would like to seek public office. ... We need people who ... really have not lost sight of what the middle class in this country needs."

Although he's been a world-famous actor for many years, Baldwin said he's still in touch with his roots. "Whatever I've accrued in my career, it hasn't changed me as a person." Watch a clip after the jump.
