Can you imagine 30 Rock without Alec Baldwin?! He and Tina Fey carry the show each week, and the humor never falters. Alec was awarded the Golden Globe yesterday for his role as Jack Donaghy on the show, beating out other top contenders Steve Carell for The Office and Matthew Morrison for Glee.
But it is a possibility that Alec won’t be around forever. There’s been recent talk about him not renewing his contract in 2012 so that he can pursue other projects. An in an interview with Fancast.com, Jack McBrayer (Kenneth) says there wouldn’t be a show without Baldwin. “If he leaves, I think the show leaves,” he said.
“That is a fear I live with on a day-to-day basis over there” he said. “I take it with as much a grain of salt as I can, hoping it’s not true. If he leaves, I think the show leaves.”
It’s true. The 30 Rock cast is made up of so many great actors, including Jane Krakowski and Tracey Morgan, and McBrayer says they have a blast on set. “We all get along very well. I don’t think of myself as someone who has a lot of demands or anything. I don’t like tooting my own horn, but I’m pretty easy going. It’s easy for me to go with the flow and fit in where there’s the most room,” he says.
But we agree with Jack that without Alec leading the show as Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming for General Electric, we’d probably stop watching. So please, Alec, renew your contract in two years! 30 Rock could be the next Seinfeld and go on for 5 more seasons easily!
