Adios, Alec!

Alec Baldwin says he's leaving Hollywood in 2012 because he is a failure.

Would you like some worms at your pity party, Mr Baldwin? This sounds like Jay-Z who's retired 7 times and remember Joaquin Phoenix pulled a similar stunt a while ago to pursue a 'career; in hip-hop.

But because he knows no one would take him seriously, Alec is just plain old sorry for himself. He claims his body of work has been a complete failure, because none of his films were critical or commercial successes.

Now if this were his brother Stephen we're talking about, we'd happily accept his resignation due to non-activity. But Alec has just recently been resurrected from stright-to-tv movies thanks to his hilarious antics on 30 Rock. He's even won two Emmys for the role! After years of being a failure, his almost true-to-life role playing a self-absorbed, pompous ego-maniac has afforded him the opportunity to revive his career.

So who snubbed him? Who tramped on his poor ego that he's stooped to such desperate levels for a little attention?

It'll be sad to say goodbye to Jack Donaghy but Alec isn't exactly going to make a dent in American comedy with his much-publicised exit.

Freakin' actors... so full of themselves!
