On the heels of NBC announcing a transition for The Tonight Show to hit airwaves during 2014’s Winter Olympics coverage, a new report surfaces with even more change for the NBC Late Night landscape. Jimmy Fallon will be taking over Jay Leno’s seat on The Tonight Show in February of 2014. Maybe even bigger news is the show’s big move from LA to New York, as NBC is rumored to be building a new studio at 30 Rock for Fallon.
According to a new report from The New York Times, Alec Baldwin might also be entering the Late Night line-up. According to the report, talks are still in the early stages, but it seems Baldwin might land the half-hour spot currently housed by “Last Call” with host Carson Daly, who is the host of NBC’s mega hit, “The Voice.”
Baldwin is most recently well known for his acclaimed and award-winning role as Jack Donaghy on the sitcom “30 Rock,” which ended earlier this year. He also has won praise for his podcast series “Here’s The Thing.” In the podcast, Baldwin conducts interviews from remote locations out of the studio. He is currently heading “Orphan” on Broadway. As for who might take over Fallon’s spot? As we’re sure you’ve heard, Seth Myers is being considered for the job. NBC seems to be headed for a complete landscape overhaul. Are you on board?
