Alec Baldwin's '30 Rock' blathering confuses the press
When Alec Baldwin talks, people write down what he says, even if what he says doesn't have any actual meaning.
Case in point:
Baldwin shows up at the National Dance Institute's fund-raising gala on Monday (April 4) and tells NY Mag's Vulture, in no uncertain terms, "I will tell you one thing and that is our show next year is our last year of the show."
Well, Baldwin has, in the past, said similar things about his own departure from the show after his contract ends next season. In this interview, though, he implied that star Tina Fey is also planning on leaving.
Of course, that led to several days of spin control with folks saying that there were no plans to end "30 Rock" after next season, statements that didn't say that Fey and Baldwin weren't leaving or that the show wasn't ending, just that nothing was as certain as Baldwin made it sound.
That left Baldwin going onto the Huffington Post to clarify: "I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope '30 Rock' goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires."
So it certainly sounds as if Baldwin is out the door after next season. But that's what he'd already said countless times.
Nothing to see here.
