Former senator, actor Fred Thompson dies
Fred Thompson, a former Republican U.S. senator from Tennessee who briefly ran for president and straddled the world of politics and entertainment with a prolific television and film acting career, died of cancer on Sunday at age 73. Thompson, a onetime real-life federal prosecutor best known to prime-time TV audiences for his role as a district attorney on NBC's hit show "Law & Order," died from a recurrence of lymphoma, said Brent Leatherwood, executive director of the Tennessee Republican Party.
