London, Jan 06 (Agencies): Actor Alec Baldwin is now planning his career in politics and is willing to contest for a post in the US government.

Baldwin said that he was deeply concerned about the middle class and thought many politicians were failing to deal with the problems the country was facing.

"Yes, it's something I'm very interested in. I do believe that people want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle class ... would like to seek public office," he said.

"We've had men who are Ivy League-groomed running this country since 1988 but still the problems aren't getting solved," he said.
