Alec Baldwin to quit acting

Alec Baldwin tells Men’s Journal that he will quit acting by 2012 and maybe go into politics. If you think actors going into politics is an absurd idea, that’s because it is.

The big reason for the decision is that Baldwin considers his entire film career a complete failure. “The goal of movie-making is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that. And now, the movies I’ve been in, I never give them a moment’s thought. Every movie I’ve ever been in, I just avoid,” he said.

I was going to comfort Alec, but then I thought about it for a while and discovered he’s right. The only thing I remember him in was 30 Rock and that’s because the article reminded me. The article also said he was in Hunt for Red October, but I thought, no, wasn’t that with Sean Connery, Sam Neil and John McTiernan Sr. who played Adviser #2? Then I went on IMDB and looked at the cast and went “Ohhhhhh.”
