Alec Baldwin Gets Some Love From Ed Schultz in New MSNBC Promo

Up Late with Alec Baldwin doesn’t premiere until next Friday, but the actor/host just got his first promo on MSNBC. In the ad, which aired during Hardball with Chris Matthews Monday evening, Baldwin gets cozy with Ed Schultz, who reveals what we can expect from new show.

With a mysterious shoulder by his side, Schultz announces, “Responding to criticism, MSNBC has turned to a man who will address the great issues of our time, while keep his emotions in check. A man who values reason over passion and provides a soothing voice for these troubled times.”

While the “criticism” may be about the always excitable Schultz, no one would guess that the antidote is the equally controversial Baldwin. By the end of the short promo, the two men are hugging it out.

We can only hope that this is the first in a series and that one starring Rachel Maddow will be next.
