NEW YORK, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Actor Stephen Baldwin says in a pre-recorded episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice" set to air Thursday that he wants out of the reality series set in New York.

Baldwin gives his ongoing conflicts with fellow contestant Piers Morgan as the reason for his desire to leave the show, NBC said in a statement.

The episode is set to air Thursday.

So far, Tiffany Fallon, Nadia Comaneci, Gene Simmons and Jennie Finch have all been fired by the show's star, real-estate mogul Donald Trump. Former "Sopranos" star Vinny Pastore resigned last week.

The remaining celebrity "candidates" competing for charity are Baldwin and Morgan, Trace Adkins, Carol Alt, Nely Galan, Marilu Henner, Lennox Lewis, Omarosa and Tito Ortiz.
