Failed GOP presidential hopeful Fred Thompson says he will be going back to his old day job, playing pols on TV. William Morris announced that they've signed big Fred to do TV and movie roles.

Before he tried to make it as an actual president (after being a real Senator from Tennessee), he spent years playing big-shot pols and most recently the District Attorney on "Law & Order." Of course, there's still buzz that could be cast in the role of Veep for John McCain.

“Did he ever really leave?”

Yes, he did quit his role on “Law & Order” to campaign.

Good thing Fred that integrity is no more a requirement for an actor than for a politician.
