There's Life After Politics for Fred Thompson -- on Mars 

After Fred Thompson’s failed effort in the 2008 presidential primaries, political pundits might not have the former Tennessee senator to kick around any more. But drama critics will have another shot.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Thompson, a University of Memhis graduate last seen as District Attorney Arthur Branch in Law and Order, has signed on to portray a chief of detectives on the ABC television program Life on Mars, a show in which, via a space-time warp, a law enforcement officer has been cast 35 years into the past.
