Outspoken actor ALEC BALDWIN is looking at radio for his next challenge, reports syndicated TV entertainment show EXTRA. BALDWIN, co-star of NBC's "30 ROCK," told EXTRA's JERRY PENACOLI, "I really do want to do other things. I just sold a pilot package to NPR for a radio interview show. I've been doing this non-stop for 32 years, started in 1980. I'm one of those people, I've just worked and worked non-stop. And I would like to try something else for a while."
BALDWIN, active in liberal causes, has previously expressed interest in running for office. His acting career includes a celebrated parody of NPR on "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" (the "Schwette Balls" sketch).
