is already leaving The Office
, so we're not sure we can cope if Alec Baldwin
says goodbye to 30 Rock
, too. But that seems to be the actor's plan for when his contract expires in 2012.
Baldwin, who plays executive Jack Donaghy in the series, told CNN
: "As much as I like acting, I know that I would love to have a different life, a private life. I think doing this now for a living has become really hard. It's really hard.
"I would rather go do other things and have whatever amount of time I have left in my life [to] have more of a normal life ... I want to find out if it's possible. How close can I get."
Baldwin has already won two Emmy Awards for his performance on 30 Rock
, and this morning it was announced that he was nominated yet again. Here's to hoping the latest nod might change his mind.
