Alec Baldwin: NBC Bags Alec Baldwin For More 30 Rock!
Posted by Adam
ALEC Baldwin isn’t going anywhere.
The actor told the Washington Press Corps on Monday that he will continue to star on 30 Rock through the show’s upcoming seventh season — which he also said will be the series’ last.
The Hollywood star made the announcement while speaking at the National Press Club, where he was lobbying for the nonprofit Americans for the Arts. Baldwin is scheduled to hit Capitol Hill on Tuesday in an effort to encourage Congress to increase arts funding. No stranger to politics himself, Baldwin last year expressed interest in running for Congress — but for now, he’s sticking with acting.
Baldwin officially signed on for the show’s next season earlier this spring, but many wondered if he would bail. Baldwin recently tweeted, “I think I’m leaving NBC just in time,” upon finding multiple Today trucks parked outside his Manhattan apartment. Back in 2009, Baldwin declared that he planned to quit acting in 2012.
Baldwin has previously dished the dirt on his next career move.
“I really do want to do other things,” he admitted. “I just sold a pilot package to NPR for a radio interview show.
“I’ve been doing this non-stop for 32 years, started in 1980. I’m one of those people, I’ve just worked and worked non-stop. And I would like to try something else for a while.”
