Kerrey Could Be Cast as MPAA’s Leading Man

Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) is under consideration to be the next head of the Motion Picture Association of America, a source confirmed Friday.

Kerrey would succeed Dan Glickman, former Clinton administration Agriculture secretary and a one-time House Member from Kansas. Glickman left the MPAA earlier this year for Refugees International.

An MPAA spokesman declined to comment.

The Wrap, a Hollywood industry trade publication, first reported Kerrey, who once dated actress Debra Winger, was in negotiations to assume the position.

Kerrey, a former governor of Nebraska, has also been under consideration to fill the top slot at the American Council of Life Insurers.

More recently, Kerrey has had a tumultuous run as president of the New School in New York. After several disputes with students, Kerrey announced that he will leave the school in June.
