LOS ANGELES, March 25 (UPI) -- Fred Thompson, after a brief foray into U.S. presidential politics, is looking to re-immerse himself in film and TV work, E! Online reported Tuesday.

Thompson has signed on with Hollywood's William Morris Agency, the entertainment news Web site reported.

Before his failed bid for the Republican candidacy, Thompson was a regular on television's "Law & Order" and had appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies.

He also served as a real-life prosecutor who worked on the Watergate committee in the mid-1970s and worked for 17 years as a lobbyist before being elected U.S. senator in Tennessee in 1994.
