Of Course Alec Baldwin Wants to be On ‘Girls’

According to Alec Baldwin, Lena Dunham needs a therapist. But hey, don’t we all. And in a recent episode of his "Here’s the Thing" podcast, Baldwin spoke with Dunham, expressing to her his desire to be on her Golden Globe-winning show, Girls. But hey, wouldn’t we all. And with 30 Rock coming to a close, it’s time for ol’ Alec to move on to something new—aside from his role in Woody Allen’s upcoming, Blue Jasmine. With Jack Donaghy behind him, who knows where we’ll see him next on the small screen, but I’m pretty sure we’d follow him anywhere—and if it so happens to be in the world of Girls, even better. Here’s a snippet from their recent chat:

Lena Dunham: Starting season three. Well, we’re starting season three and —
Alec Baldwin: When?
LD: We’re starting at the end of March. I’m so excited.
AB: Great. I’ll be available.
LD: Yay!
AB: I’ll come and play your therapist.
LD: That would be the most fun thing in the world.
AB: You need a therapist.
LD: Bad.
AB: Bad.

Baldwin went on to ask: "Is there a 54-year-old psychotherapist in it?" To which Dunham responded, "There’s a 54-year-old somebody in [it]." Here’s to hoping!
