I do not watch a lot of TV, but there are a few shows that I like a lot.
One is LAW & ORDER.
The actor now portraying the NYC District Attorney is named Fred 
Thompson.
 From his online bio:
He won a special election to the United States Senate in 1994 and was 
reelected for a full term in 1996. He did not run for reelection in 
2002. As a Republican, he represented Tennessee from 2 December 1994 - 
3 January 2003.  Was an attorney before becoming an actor. Worked as a 
shoe salesman, truck driver, and even a factory worker prior to 
becoming a lawyer. As a Senator, Fred Thompson was anti-union while 
(ironically) maintaining membership of the Screen Actors Guild. When he 
joined the cast of "Law & Order" (1990) in the fall of 2002, Thompson 
(District Attorney Arthur Branch) became the first serving U.S. Senator 
to take a regular TV acting job. Thompson helped introduce President 
George W. Bush at the Republican National Convention (2004) in New 
York. Is the only actor to be a regular on two different "Law & Order" 
series at the same time. From March to May 2005, he played District 
Attorney Arthur Branch on both "Law & Order" (1990) and "Law & Order: 
Trial by Jury" (2005). He also plays the same character as a recurring 
guest star in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (1999).

There are so many "Law & Order" spinoffs. Those on this list in CA 
should pitch a puppet version, "Law & Order: Puppet Justice" maybe?

Now all together in your finest animitronic Disneyland/world voices,
It's a small world after all...
