Who's the boss? More like who's the mayor.

Tony Danza hinted at a possible run to be New York City's mayor, saying that as he gets older he's noticing more aspects of the city that need to be fixed, amNY reports.

"I'm of a certain age, and you see things, and you think maybe you could help," Danza said at Wednesday night's premiere of the movie "Premium Rush," according to The Wall Street Journal. "You say: 'Let me fix the city. Let me run for mayor.' "

Danza, 61, who was born in Brooklyn, raised in Malverne and now and lives in the city, didn't specify exactly what aspects of the city he would fix, adding that any mayoral run right now is strictly theoretical.

"I'm concerned, I'm up-to-date, I read the papers," he said. "But could I stand the scrutiny? I'm not sure. It's a tough job. And it's not like anybody's asking me."

Danza's rep did not return requests for comment.
