Fred Thompson made yet another cameo appearance Tuesday — but this time he showed up in the Senate instead of “Law & Order.”
The former Republican senator from Tennessee and 2008 presidential candidate hung out in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellMeet Trump's secret weapon on infrastructure Senate confirms first nominees of Trump era The new Washington elite schmoozes over lunch MORE’s (R-Ky.) office before the weekly GOP policy lunch.

Thompson seems to do it all these days. He wrote a book last year, appeared on the hit CBS show “The Good Wife” earlier this year and just wrapped a yet-to-be-revealed feature film shot on Long Island, N.Y. (“I’m not the publicist for it, so I don’t want to get out in front of it,” he said.)
But there’s one thing the goateed actor is not prepared to do yet — endorse a candidate in the GOP presidential primary.
“I don’t have any inclinations right now,” he said after giving a quick “nope” when asked if he had any advice for the scandal-plagued Herman Cain.
