Baldwin unsure about more 30 Rock

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."

Catching up on your reading, playing a sport or watching a movie will help you wind down. There are worse things than being held captive by a regular routine.More
