Bob Kerrey new head of the Motion Picture Association of America? Close, but no deal yet

Former senator Bob Kerrey is poised, according to numerous reports, to return to Washington as head of the Motion Picture Association of America, a.k.a. Hollywood's top lobbyist in D.C. It makes sense: The charismatic president of New York's New School is a movie buff who once dated Debra Winger.

But hold the congrats: Kerrey was offered the job last week, according to sources familiar with the process, but there are plenty of details to hammer out before it's a done deal. Six years ago, Rep. Billy Tauzin accepted the MPAA job and was almost crowned as successor to the legendary Jack Valenti -- until Tauzin accepted the higher-paying gig as head of the pharmaceutical trade association. Stay tuned.
