30 Rock Cast to Alec Baldwin: Don't Go!

We’ve heard rumor upon rumor about Alec Baldwin leaving 30 Rock a la Steve Carell’s upcoming departure from The Office.

Hollyscoop brought it up on the Emmy red carpet with cast members Maulik Pancholy (Jack’s assistant Jonathan), Kevin Brown (Dot Com) and Katrina Bowden (Cerie), and they didn’t seem happy about Jack Donaughey’s maybe resignation.

“I don’t know,” said Pancholy of his on-air boss. “You are going to have to ask him. Me and my character hope he stays around as long as he can.”

Bowden, whom we’ve spoken to about this very topic in the past, said, “I don’t know either, of course we all hope he stays as long as he can.”

Brown told us (as the uber-fans) not to jump to conclusions quite yet. “You know what, they do this in basketball,” he explained. “I don’t know if you remember when the free agents were negotiating what teams, they always say ‘I don’t want to go to NY,’ which means NY has to break open the piggy bank for them. That might be one of those things that Alec is saying so they know they have to be ready if they want to keep him around.”

Well, he’s definitely worth whatever he’s making! We think Baldwin should be the highest-paid TV actor over Charlie Sheen!
