With Jimmy Fallon's move to "The Tonight Show," the late night carousel is up and turning.
When he moves into the big chair in 2014, he'll leave an empty one at "Late Night." There's been plenty of speculation about who might succeed him, but it seems NBC might have even bigger plans -- an overhaul of its entire late night lineup.
The New York Times reports that the network is talking to "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin about hosting a show. A source tells the Times that the Emmy winner would likely take over "Last Call" from Carson Daly, who also hosts "The Voice."
Baldwin already has some hosting and interviewing experience from his WNYC radio podcast, "Here's the Thing." On the program, he's chatted with stars like Lena Dunham, David Letterman, and Billy Joel. And if Baldwin retains the podcast's format of prerecorded interviews for a late night show, he'll have time for acting projects (he's currently headlining the Broadway play "Orphans").
If Baldwin did take over "Last Call," it would mean new hosts for all three of NBC's late night shows. For the empty spot at "Late Night," rumors are swirling around names like "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Meyers and radio shock jock Howard Stern.
