Alec Baldwin is getting a new girlfriend on 30 Rock

Alec BaldwinAllison already gave you the news that James Franco is going to guest star on 30 Rock, and now Kristin over at E! has done a little detective work and has news about another casting coup for the NBC show (possible spoilers follow).

An E! correspondent talked to Alec Baldwin on the red carpet at an Elle party and Baldwin told her that he's getting a new love interest on the show. When asked who, he wouldn't say, but looked around and said it was someone who was near to them.

Around Baldwin were Julianne Moore, Katie Holmes, Emily Blunt, Julie Andrews, Renee Zellweger, Becki Newton, Brenda Strong, and Zoe Saldana. Now, a couple of those women might be too young for Baldwin, Zellweger is probably too busy with movies, and Andrews might be too old, so Kristin at E! is guessing it's Moore (also, Moore lives in New York where the show is filmed and her rep wouldn't deny it, saying only to "contact NBC" about it).

I agree with Kristin that Andrews would be a great choice. Or if they're going to go with a Moore, how about Mary Tyler? It might be funny to see Jack Donaghy with an older, powerful woman.

I want it to be Mary McDonnell playing herself because she's great and imagine the TGS writers reactions.

I think it'll be Brenda Strong (she plays the dead housewife/narrator on Desperate Housewives and was also Sue Ellen Mischke on Seinfeld among many other roles oon TV and in movies).

Julie Andrews? Seriously? Too old.

I liked Edie Falco, but Jack Donaghy would (and could) date younger. My vote is for Katie Holmes!

I don't even know the last three names mentioned.

It would definitely make the most sense for it to be an older woman. Given the issues he has with his mother (the great Elaine Strich), it would make perfect sense for him to look to an older woman for what he is not getting from his own mother. If not Mary or Julie, how about Cloris Leachman, Doris Roberts, or Shirley Maclaine. Any septugenarian will do!
