Dodd reportedly in the mix to be movie industry’s top lobbyist

Is retiring Sen. Chris Dodd Hollywood material? The Motion Picture Association of America apparently thinks so.

A report in the New York Times this morning says that Dodd, who will be leaving Congress next month after more than three decades, is one candidate under consideration to become the MPAA’s top lobbyist.

One problem: Dodd has said he doesn’t want to lobby. But perhaps the MPAA’s $1.2 million annual salary will help him change his mind?
