Actor Alec Baldwin is not running for Congress.

"No, that's bulls--t," he said when asked about the rumor. Baldwin was in Washington on Sunday night for the 33rd annual Kennedy Center Honors, where he introduced honoree Sir Paul McCartney.

There were reports Baldwin was considering a run at Rep. Tim Bishop's (D-N.Y.) seat in 2012. Bishop's reelection has not yet been determined.

Bishop leads Republican Randy Altschuler by a few hundred votes, but ballots are still being counted. Lawyers from both sides will be back in court Wednesday to challenge ballots.
