As a kind of warm-up to his upcoming gig as Academy Awards co-host, Alec Baldwin appeared at the Time Warner Center for a personal and wide-ranging conversation. But he did have one Oscar forecast: Expect wardrobe changes for himself and co-host Steve Martin.

The 51-year-old actor said, "It's a very metrosexualized kind of a show now."

In a Wednesday evening event presented by Fordham Law School, Baldwin spoke passionately and at length about issues he feels strongly about, including nuclear power and family law.

Before becoming an actor, Baldwin considered entering law school.

When event moderator Thane Rosenbaum asked him if had he become a lawyer whether his brothers would have followed him into that profession, Baldwin joked: "God no. I would be representing them."
