In movies, on television, and in his highly spotlit personal life, Baldwin is known for his temper. That's why we're particularly engaged with the idea of him taking on a primetime MSNBC program — a transaction that Mediaite reports is presently in the works. Because what environment is less conducive to yelling than a political talk show?
The series, which will reportedly air Friday nights at 10 PM, could be Baldwin's first official televised outlet for his well-known liberal politics. A place where he can put his ideologies, and his knack for high-volume personal expression, to the test.
