NBC won’t let Baldwin quit

first_img“Alec Baldwin remains an important part of `30 Rock.’ We look forward to having him continue his role in the show,” NBC said in a statement Wednesday. Baldwin intends to fulfill his obligation to the show, a source close to the actor said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity. Baldwin and ex-wife Kim Basinger have been embroiled since their 2002 divorce in a custody dispute over their daughter, Ireland, 11. It boiled over recently with Baldwin’s phone message for Ireland, berating her as a “rude, thoughtless little pig” for missing his call. – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Divorced dad Alec Baldwin, caught yelling at his daughter on a voice-mail message, said Wednesday he asked NBC to let him out of his “30 Rock” contract so he can devote his time to the issue of “parental alienation.” “If I never acted again, I couldn’t care less,” Baldwin said in a pre-taped appearance for ABC’s “The View,” scheduled to air Friday. The actor, in a transcript “The View” provided to The Associated Press, said he also wanted to quit “30 Rock” so the sitcom and the hundreds who work on it wouldn’t “be hurt by the situation.” NBC, however, quickly shot down the idea. last_img
