Unemployed Fred Thompson Decides to Go Back to Acting

While he failed to convince enough Americans to make him president, Republican Fred Thompson still has a shot at playing commander-in-chief. The former presidential candidate, US Senator, and (pretend) NYC district attorney plans to go back to acting.

After rumors swirled that he wanted to serve as RNC chair, Fred called his former fundraising chair this week and told him it wasn't happening. The close aide said:

He called me yesterday and said it’s not in the cards. He said he had spent the last two years of his life trying to be president and helping John McCain be president and during that time, he didn’t have much income. He has a family.

Are you sad to see Fred bow out of politics?

LOL!- that's all I thought when I saw the headline. I will never watch a show with him in it and I have turned off reruns of L&O that had him in it. Maybe just disappear?.....

Yes, go back to acting. He was never a real politician, was he?

Gosh that's sad he's unemployed! You don't think of people at that level being like a lot of us.

Ditto Heather. I wish I could just go back to acting when I have financial difficulty. :)

Watch Us: Omg, plenty of people are still obsessed with L&O! But I don't miss Fred Thompson on it.

Oh, I think he should go back to what he did in the first place. Republicans are ALWAYS great actors.

Hopefully he doesn't ick up L&O again (unlikely, with Jack as DA.) Worst DA ever.

Am I sad? HA! No... not really. Will "Law & Order" take him back? Is that show even still on? Does anybody still watch it? I don't think he was ever REALLY that interested in becoming president, or politics in general. He's only 66, so he's got a few years of real work left in him, if he's interested. Then again, he could always just retire...

I never felt he was very enthusiastic about politics.. I think acting again would be good for him.

Well he got to get his hustle on, unemployment is tough. If he can get an acting job, he needs to get on it.
