"Friends of Fred Thompson" is not the newest fan club for the actor known for playing NBC "Law & Order" head district attorney; It is a committee incorporated in papers filed last week with the Secretary of State of Nashville, Tennessee to "promote the potential candidacy of Fred Thompson for the office of president of the United States," according to AP reports.
