Thompson's 'Law and Order' colleague predicts presidential run
"I think that is going to happen," Waterston told CNN's Wolf Blitzer when asked whether he thinks his television co-star will run for president.
Waterston, who described his relationship with Thompson as "friendly," praised the Tennessee Republican as a "straight-forward" man.
"He's a good man, a very nice man, and he's been very, very straight-forward with me all the time," Waterston said.
Waterston is in Washington promoting Unity '08, an organization seeking to advance a bipartisan or independent ticket in the 2008 presidential race. He will discuss the organization in a speech Wednesday at the National Press Club.
