Baldwin unsure about more 30 Rock

Alec Baldwin can't imagine his life getting any better

Alec Baldwin has hinted that he might make an appearance on another series of 30 Rock.

The actor, whose contract on the hit comedy ends after the upcoming sixth season, said the show could be extended for another year, but he's not sure whether he wants to do it.

"I might. I wouldn't want to prevent them from having another year, because they're all my friends and they've been good to me," Alec revealed.

"Maybe I would do a piece of the year. But I really do want to move on to other things."

Post-30 Rock, the Emmy-winning star is working on a new interview show for New York public radio and exploring movie roles he's been offered.

But a much-touted move into politics would take longer, Alec reckons.

"I have to finish what I'm doing now and separate these two parts of my life," he said.

"I haven't really formalised that. It's like the difference between going to Jon Stewart and (veteran news journalist) Jim Lehrer. The jokes have to stop, everything has to be on the record."

He added: "The life I have now is not going to get any better. I have a great job. Everybody thinks I'm funny. I'm fooling everybody. They think I'm talented.

"I'm pulling the wool over everybody's eyes and they're paying me for it. It's thrilling."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
