It might not be arm wrestling with Muammar Qaddafi, but the Smithsonian’s upcoming exhibit on the visual history of yoga is still enticing enough to Jack Donaghy’s alter ego that he’s agreed to co-chair the exhibition’s gala. Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, a yoga instructor, will act as gala chairs for “Yoga: The Art of Transformation,” scheduled to open at the Sackler Gallery on October 19. The actor announced the news yesterday—how else?—via his Twitter account.

The Sackler’s yoga exhibition is the first ever museum exhibition to explore the history of yoga and also the first the Smithsonian has actively crowdfunded, in an effort to raise $125,000 towards its costs. If you can’t wait until October, and you want to see a video of the Baldwins practicing yoga in a studio in Cannes right now, watch here.
