Alec confirmed to Playboy that an Ohio law firm approached him to run for governor, essentially saying, "Mr. Baldwin, here's who we represent, the kinds of cases we handle, our credentials in Ohio state politics. We want you to move to Ohio and run for governor. We will launch your career."
Sounds easy! But he's the first to point out there are more than a few skeletons in his closet, telling Playboy, "If I do [go into politics], these guys will have a field day. I've given them so much crap to use against me — Canteen Boy, Schweddy balls. I just did the Wii sketch. Did you see that? . . . Google or YouTube that one; it's just ridiculous. While I'm doing it, I'm thinking, If I run for political office, they'll have a forest of material to kill me with."
Let's start with the Wii clip! (Thanks, Alec.)
