Hollywood star Alec Baldwin has set the date for his retirement and said that he'll consider himself a former actor in 2012.

The 51-year-old actor is hoping to say goodbye to his acting career when his current contract on TV show '30 Rock'

"In March 2012, I'll wake up and say, 'What am I going to do now? Am I done?' I think I will be done. I may
finish a play or something, but I'm retiring at the wrap party," Baldwin said in an interview with 'Playboy' magazine.

'The Cooler' actor hopes that his decision to walk away from show business will allow him to lead a quiet family
life away from Hollywood.

"I have this silly fantasy; I get married again, I have a kid. I'd love another shot at that, with everything
I've learned," Baldwin said.

"My kid's, like, eight, comes home and says, 'Dad, Jimmy's mom says you were a famous actor on TV and in the
movies. Is that true?' And I go, 'Yes, Johnny, dad was famous.'

"I whip out my scrapbooks and my DVDs and say,'Believe it or not, that's your dad.' And my kid's like, 'You used to
be on TV and everything? And now you stay home and just clean the house all day while mom works?' 'That's right, son'," the actor added.
