Think Val Kilmer is kind of a weird dude? How much fun would it be to have him as governor?
This just in:
Having variously portrayed God, Moses and Philip II of Macedon in his unpredictable career, Val Kilmer may be contemplating a role that would carry more real-world authority. In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr. Kilmer said he may consider running for governor of New Mexico in 2010, when a term-limit law would prevent Gov. Bill Richardson from seeking a third stay in office (although thats what opponents of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg thought, too). Im just looking for ways to be contributive, Mr. Kilmer said, according to The A.P. And if that ends up being where I can make a substantial contribution, then Ill run. Though born and raised in Los Angeles, Mr. Kilmer, a star of films including The Doors and Batman Forever, has resided for two decades in New Mexico, where he keeps a 6,000-acre ranch outside of Santa Fe. He said he had not conclusively decided to seek office, but told The A.P., If I run, Im going to be the next governor.
