NOW: Fred Dalton Thompson
Fred Dalton Thompson isn't just an actor. He has worked as an attorney, radio host and former Senator. In addition to representing the state of Tennessee in the U.S. Senate from 1994 to 2003, Thompson served as chairman of the International Security Advisory Board at the U.S. Department of State. He took a break from “Law & Order” in 2008 to run for president on the Republican ticket, but was unable to secure enough support and ended up dropping out of the race. He recently appeared on two episodes of "The Good Wife" and has four movies slated for release in 2014. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Stephen Cohen/Getty Images)
