Alec Baldwin Wants to Interview Edward Snowden

Alec Baldwin, currently among the leaders in the race to become the most annoying celebrity of 2013, wants to interview Edward Snowden for his WNYC podcast. The 55-year-old actor told Vanity Fair that he’s doing everything in his power to make it happen:

I want to try to interview him [Snowden] for my podcast on WNYC. I’m pressing all the buttons I have in London with friends of mine who know [Julian] Assange. I’m going to fly to Russia and try to interview Snowden.

That sounds great.

Baldwin also said that he’s never going to use Twitter again because “It’s just another chink in your armor for people to come and kill you.”

One could argue that if you’re not an idiot, people don’t try to “kill you,” but hey, what do we know? Other than there’s no way Baldwin stays away from Twitter, we mean.
