Los Angeles: Actor Alec Baldwin is reportedly being lined up to host a late-night talk show for National Broadcasting Company (NBC). It is said to be based on his popular podcast series, ‘Here`s The Thing’.

The ‘30 Rock’ actor, who currently stars in a stage production ‘Orphans’ by New York`s Broadway theatre, had conversations with NBC about taking over a slot. The said slot is currently occupied by "Carson Daly`s Last Call", after impressing network chiefs with his podcast series, reports

"People have been impressed with his radio podcast series and have thought about him for these opportunities," said a source.

Baldwin`s podcast series with WNYC radio has seen him interview stars including David Letterman, Billy Joel, Kristen Wiig and Chris Rock, away from the studio into locations such as his guests` apartment.

If the proposed 30-minute TV show followed the same format, it would mean the 55-year-old actor could record several instalments in one day, leaving his schedule open for his other commitments, said a source.
