Alec Baldwin has had enough. The 54-year-old has been threatening to leave Hollywood for a while now, and his latest scuffle with a paparazzi photographer when he was obtaining his marriage license seems to be the straw that finally broke this camel’s back.
Alec has been quoted saying, “I keep telling my future wife that I want to make her rich because I want to retire. I know it’s a long shot, but that’s the plan I’m sticking with right now. I want to have a baby and stay at home and make the pancakes before I send my wife out to work every day to pay the bills.”
Alec sounds like he’s ready to step out of the spotlight for good, but acting is still his passion, and he’s not ready to let it go completely. Although he’s clearly had enough of Hollywood right now, Alec seems to have no hard feelings toward Broadway and is slated to star in a production called Orphans next year.
Orphans is the story of two parentless brothers, Treat and Phillip, who live in horrible conditions in a North Philadelphia row house. The brothers decide to kidnap a wealthy man, Harold (played by Alec), in hopes of improving their situation financially. Harold ends up becoming a father figure to Treat and Phillip.
Although the play has been around since 1983, this will be the first Broadway production of Orphans. Itwill be directed by Daniel Sullivan and produced by Frederick Zollo and Robert Cole.
"I have dreamed, for a long time, of doing this play with this director," Baldwin said. "It's an honor to work with Dan Sullivan in Lyle Kessler's Orphans.”
Alec is currently best known for his role as Liz Lemmon’s boss, Jack Donaghy, on the NBC hit comedy 30 Rock. He has flourished in the role, winning more SAG awards for his portrayal of Jack than any other male performer; he has also won two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Alec also has some Broadway experience under his belt already, having played the role of Stanley Kowalski in the 1992 production of A Streetcar Named Desire and starring in Twentieth Century in 2004.
If you are in need of an Alec fix before his Broadway stint next spring, his latest movie, Rock of Ages, starring Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, and Julianne Hough, is in theaters now.
30 Rock is ending this fall after seven seasons.
