Alec Baldwin to leave ’30 Rock’ in 2012
HollywoodNews.com: Even though he was recently nominated for an Emmy today as best actor in a comedy series, Alec Baldwin asserts that he’s leaving “30 Rock” in 2012.
“As much as I like acting,” Baldwin tells CNN,” I know that I would love to have a different life. A private life … I think that doing this now for a living has become really, really hard. It’s really hard. I would rather go do other things, and [with] whatever amount of time I have left in my life, have a normal life.
“I want to find out — how close can I get?”
Baldwin plays a satirical take on former GE corporate head Jack Welch, Jr. on NBC’s “30 Rock.”
Today marked his fourth Emmy nom with “30 Rock,” of which he won best actor for the sitcom in 2008 and 2009.
Baldwin was also nominated for a supporting actor Oscar in 2004 for “The Cooler.”
