NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC’s prime-time lineup is getting some star power with Alec Baldwin, at least for one night a week.

The cable news network announced Thursday that the actor will host “Up Late with Alec Baldwin,” a current events and culture talk show to air Friday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern time. The show is modeled after a podcast he’s been doing for WNYC radio in New York, interviewing personalities like David Letterman, Dick Cavett and Republican political strategist Ed Rollins.

The network said the show will begin in October. The two-time Emmy winner for “30 Rock” and 16-time host of “Saturday Night Live” will be back in familiar territory. MSNBC says Baldwin’s show will tape at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
