OTRC: Alec Baldwin to get talk show, Carson Daly's time slot? (Poll)

Alec Baldwin talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at the premiere of 'Rock of Ages' on June 8, 2012.

Is Alec Baldwin set to hit the late-night television circuit?

The 55-year-old actor, who is known for his numerous roles in television and film, is in "initial talks" for a spot in NBC's late-night line up, according to an April 9 report by The New York Times.

The report speculates that the Emmy-award winning actor would most likely appear in NBC's newest series, "Last Call," which currently stars Carson Daly.

The outlet does not specify what would happen to the show's current host, Daly of "The Voice," if Baldwin were to assume the position.

The NBC network has been in somewhat of a shift lately, having recently announced that Jay Leno would be leaving "The Tonight Show" in 2014, with Jimmy Fallon stepping in as his replacement.

"The Tonight Show" has been facing steadily declining ratings in recent years. Fallon, 38, will be one of the youngest hosts of the show since Johnny Carson took the role in 1962, and is also largely popular among young adults.

Baldwin has recently been making headlines for his relationship to yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin, who recently announced that she's expecting the couple's first child -- a girl.

"So happy about our little girl! Thank you all for the happy wishes xoxo," she wrote in a Tweet on March 7. Baldwin already has a 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.

The actor is known for his roles in films such as "Beetlejuice," "The Hunt for Red October," "It's Complicated," "Rock of Ages" and "The Departed." The actor was also loved by many for his role as Jack Donaghy on NBC's long-running comedy show, "30 Rock."
