Another day, another rumored candidate to take over the Motion Picture Association of America. And yes, they're still looking for a new prez, eight months after Dan Glickman stepped down. TheWrap.com reported Tuesday that Tom Davis, the former GOP congressman from NoVa, is a front-runner to be Hollywood's top lobbyist; our own sources confirm he's a contender. As for Davis: "All I can tell you," he said on the phone from the Bahamas, "is you're the third person to call me on it, and how come I don't know about it?" The New York Times this week floated the names of Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson. In July, the MPAA took the unusual step of announcing former Sen. Bob Kerrey would not ascend to the job, after a months-long much-leaked courtship.
