Fred Dalton Thompson, whom everyone knows as the cantankerous D.A. on “Law and Order,” dropped out of sight to run for President.
That didn’t exactly pan out, so Thompson went to work campaigning for John McCain‘s failed Republican approach. He was setting himself up to become Republican National Committee chairman.
Well, that didn’t work out either.
Now, he’s going back to his only means of major revenue: acting, Associated Press says.
But it doesn’t look as if “Law and Order” will have him back. They’re having ratings troubles of their own.
So he’ll be looking for other opportunities. Maybe he’ll do what all failed or retired actors do: He’ll direct.
