If I never acted again I couldn’t care less.

LOS ANGELES – Divorced dad Alec Baldwin, caught yelling at his daughter on a voicemail message, said Wednesday he asked NBC to let him out of his “30 Rock” contract so he can devote his time to the issue of “parental alienation.”
“If I never acted again I couldn’t care less,” Baldwin said in a pre- taped appearance for ABC’s “The View,” scheduled to air Friday.
The actor, in a transcript provided to The Associated Press by “The View,” said that he also wanted to quit “30 Rock” so the sitcom and the hundreds who work on it wouldn’t “be hurt by the situation.”
NBC, however, quickly shot down the idea. The actor has became a key asset for the freshman sitcom, stealing the show as an oily but charming network executive overseeing a “Saturday Night Live”-type program.
