Alec Baldwin to quit 30 Rock in 2012

Alec BaldwinActually, I've been thinking about this, and I wonder: is this really such big news? I mean, 2012 is a few years from now, and there's a good chance that 30 Rock will be over by then anyway. So Baldwin will probably be leaving the show when, well, everyone else is.

Still, this interview with Playboy (highlights only - buy the mag for the whole thing) looks pretty interesting, with lots of quotes about his marriage, his contemplating suicide after leaving that phone message for his daughter, what he thinks of TMZ, Twitter, his possible political plans, and why he'll never go on Today again.

didn't he announce this (or something similar) on one of the last episodes of 30 Rock as Jack?

I think it was a comment Jack made to Liz about TGS lasting only another 2-3 years tops. She was under the misguided belief that it would last 15-20 years like SNL.

Yeah, him leaving in 2012 is not that noteworthy. Hopefully the show will last that long but in TV land you can never be too sure. At least he wasn't saying he wanted to leave the show like he did a year or so ago.

Fingers crossed that 30 Rock gets the Emmy again this year too. It certainly deserves it.

sounds like great news to me, if that means we can count on 30 Rock for 4 more seasons!
