At least Rosie ODonnell took some of the heat off him. Now thats the person Alec should be calling a fat pig.
NBC (ended 2013)
|according to an article on people.com, alec has asked 30 rock to release him from his contract, as he doesnt want the show to be viewed negatively because of him. But I think that without alec, there is no 30 Rock. I still think this will blow over and 30 Rock's ratings will go up! we'll see how the finale tonight takes...|
He did ask to be let out of his contract but NBC said no.
I actually think that was dumb of him to ask. It is his problem not 30 Rock's. Just keep being funny and it will blow over.
|I couldn't agree more Jaydawg, everything you said was spot on.|
Alec appeared today on The View to discuss this matter. It was the only interview he agreed to because he trusts the hosts. In my view, he was very candid and Barbara and Rosie let him say everything he wanted to. Three points come to the fore.
For some time, Alec has been writing a book an alienated parents. It is apparent that this is a way of dealing with his own situation and also providing an information and pathway for people who find themselves in similar circumstances. The legal maze that surrounds him and cruelly separates him from his daughter is intolerable, and he knows there are many like him.
He readily admits that his behaviour was wrong. Appalling, inappropriate, etc. His explanation was that he was very angry in the moment and took it out on the wrong person. He is deeply sorry; she (Ireland) has apparently forgiven him.
He has asked to be released from his 30 Rock contract; this is still in discussion. He said he would be comfortable if he never acted again (what a loss for us!) and would focus on finishing his book and promoting it (not just for sales, but for the helping part). His strong sense of family (his mother is an icon for him) is helping him weather this storm.
I respect this man: for his talent, for his intelligence, for his spiritual integrity. He said he couldn't care less if he never acted again. Perhaps taking a few years to do something entirely different would be a good thing for him right now; and in 5-10 years we might see him return to the screen (or stage). He still has much to give and we the viewers would be richer for his continuing contribution however he sees it. Personally, I wish him the best.
|Pluto what. I think it might help bring more viewers in to see how he acts. or to see if he will do anything else that might hurt his career not cause by Will Ferrell and Dora or his wife i guess.|
