The actor – who famously starred as the Caped Crusader in ‘Batman Forever’ in 1995 – is the favourite to replace current governor Bill Richardson when he steps down from the position in 2011.
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 haven’t talked to him about it, 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.”
Val wouldn’t be the only actor to move into politics. Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to be doing great! Source
