'Rambo' Actor/Director Sly Stallone On-Set

Former Tennessee Senator and Republican Presidential pipe-dreamer Fred Thompson announced today that he is dropping out of the race for the party's nomination and has signed on to play the son of Sylvester Stallone's Rambo in next year's Rambo V: Rambo vs Alien and Predator, and maybe Jaws.

Thompson says he was handpicked for the role by Stallone, who will write, direct, star and cater the project.

"Sly felt I was perfect for the role due to our similar physiques, and he felt that with my rugged good looks, the audience would easily buy into the idea that I am his son," Thompson explained.

According to Thompson, if the movie is successful Stallone plans to write him a role as an up-and-coming young boxer in the next installment in the wildly successful 'Rocky' franchise.
