He governed Nebraska, once ran for President, and dated actress Debra Winger.

Now Bob Kerrey, the former Democratic senator for Nebraska, is Hollywood's top choice to be the next head of the Motion Picture Association of America, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Winger relationship happened while he was Governor of Nebraska and she was in Lincoln, Nebraska to film 'Terms Of Endearment.' Kerry famously told a reporter at the time, "What can I say, she swept me off my foot," referring to the loss of part of one leg in Vietnam. Kerrey received a Medal Of Honor for that battle.

He's also thought to be the model for the character of Senator Charles Martin in the book 'Primary Colors' and is a supporter of comedian-turned-senator Al Franken.

Kerrey has reportedly not yet accepted the deal and an MPAA spokesperson's only comment was that the search committee of studio heads has "not been made aware" of the choice.

Current interim President Bob Pisano took over in March when Dan Glickman left the position.

Since leaving the Senate, Kerrey has served as President of the New School, a university in New York City, but he'll be stepping down in 2011: After a series of controversies and a vote of no confidence by the school's faculty, he promised to resign when his contract expires.
