The 30 Rock actor told New York Mag that other projects have taken precedence and he is no longer able to appear in the next instalment of the sci-fi film franchise.
"I'm not doing that. I'm out of it. The schedule didn't work out," he said.
It was previously revealed that production on the project has been pushed back until March 28 to accommodate script changes.
