Governor Val Kilmer


I know, I know, it sounds like a joke right? Well, apparently it really isn't a joke. Bill Richardson, the current Governor of New Mexico and mandated by term limits to step down in 2011 thinks that Val Kilmer would be the best choice as his replacement. Although they have only talked it about superficially, Richardson said, "I like the idea. Val Kilmer is a New Mexican, he was Batman. You know there have been successful actors going into politics. I don't know how serious he is, but you know if he jumps in a race he's got name ID, so it can't be discounted."

Well, one thing is for sure, Val would make sure that fast food was subsidized for everyone. I think Val is in some kind of unwritten competition with me to see who can get the biggest. Goodness he has ballooned up nicely.

I'm trying to picture Val as a Governor. I know he does some charity work in New Mexico and involved with some animal rescue groups there. He really doesn't have a film career anymore, but at the same time is a big enough star where he would bring some attention to the state. Plus, he could set up some kind of video system outside the Governor's mansion and just play Top Secret and Real Genius on some kind of loop. Oh, and I'm sure Tom Cruise would be happy to come lend a hand and he and Katie will walk door to door telling people to vote for Val and offering a free stress test at the same time.

didn't he ramble on a few years back about his mensa membership? what a tool.

Did Richardson really say the Batman comment?


Geez, Val used to be a good looking guy. Don't they have gyms in New Mexico? Are they illegal? Maybe that could be his first act as Gov - mandatory gym memberships starting with himself.

"Did Richardson really say the Batman comment?"

Yes, unfortunately, he did. The overlap of politics and celebrity is out of control.

Wow--he looks like he is about to deliver any day now.

dammit, I wanted to like Bill Richardson. :(

I think, second to Biden, he was a prime choice for VP.

but I've lived in souteastern PA most of my life. And have been (still) basically living in delaware at AI duPont hospital for almost 3 months now...and from what I see Joe Biden is awesome.

I didn't know much about Biden but after some research, I like him as the choice...

life is but a dream said...

cool! he could be governor for awhile and end up as a vice prez nominee in another 4 years or so.

go val!

p.s. i still think his comedic timing is superior than most these days.

I'd still be his Huckleberry.

If he does run, I wonder if Hollywood bucks will be thrown toward his OPPONENT???

Val has been very very active about getting movies to come to him in New Mexico and with him in the governor's chair, who knows what more incentives he'd get to woo more productions out there. It doesn't matter if he's in the movie or not, he wants to get the business for New Mexico.

Something to think about...

shoe addict said...

what is he...like 6 mos pregnant?
well at least he's on trend.
All of Hollywood is getting into politics and all of Hollywood is havin babies.
Don't quit your day job Val Kilmer, you're a damn good actor

If Ronnie Regan can be president and Ahnold can be the governator then why can't Batman have a shot? lol

Loved him in the Doors....he played a good Jim.

Dave said...

Yeah, but he'll just load up the Gov's office with popcorn and zap it with a big laser.

bionic bunny! said...

heh-heh @ dave!

i could actually handle "real genius" on some kind of loop. i love that movie, and (it being loosely based on cal tech, which i grew up near) know the type (okay, married the type, but not a cal tech alum). and don't let mensa membership fool you. some of the biggest idiots i've met are mensa members.

again, it's the booze. mea culpa.

Val Kilmer WAS Doc Holliday!

I'll be your huckleberry!

Love him!
