Baldwin Tried to Quit 30 Rock, But NBC Would Not Allow It

Alec Baldwin, who last week told his eleven-year-old daughter Ireland on a voicemail that she was a “rude, thoughtless little pig” and was embarrassed when said voicemail was released to the public, stated in a pre-taped appearance on The View that he tried to get an early release from his NBC contract. Baldwin, who plays Jack Donaghy on the critically-acclaimed sitcom 30 Rock, said that he did not want the show and the cast and crew to “be hurt by the situation.”

Fortunately, NBC realizes that Alec Baldwin is a critical element of the show’s moderate success and cannot afford to lose him. The network released a statement saying that it “look[s] forward to having him continue his role in the show.”
