Disappointed by the film's scheduling issues, the '30 Rock' star decides to stop playing in the movie and joins Tom Cruise in the cast of movie musical 'Rock of Ages'.
Alec Baldwin has quit the stalled "Men in Black 3" movie due to scheduling issues. The "30 Rock" star signed up to play an MIB boss in the third installment of the alien action comedy, starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
Filming was initially due to begin in New York in October 2010 but was pushed back until late November 2010. Script problems have now stalled the film, and the scheduling problems have prompted Baldwin to step down.
"I'm out of it; the schedule didn't work out," he tells New York magazine.
The actor has now joined the cast of movie musical "Rock of Ages" with Tom Cruise, and reveals he's taking his role seriously after signing up for singing lessons. He reveals, "Does that surprise you that I would take lessons? You have to, you have to take it seriously."
