Actor Val Kilmer is considering following in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger and swapping acting for politics. Kilmer claims he already has the backing to run for Governor of his homestate New Mexico - and could do a far better job than other stars who have crossed the divide. He says, "I did get some lobbyists once saying that I'd make a good governor. "Reagan wasn't much of an actor and look how that worked out for him. And then there's Arnold... I think you should be able to pronounce the name of the state." Action star Schwarzenegger began his career in politics in 2003, when he was voted Governor of California.
