WASHINGTON D.C. - Former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd is about to begin his next career after nearly 30 years in Washington.

The Motion Picture Association of America is expected to name Dodd as its new chief lobbyist, according to The New York Times.

Barring a last-minute snag, a contract could reportedly come as early as this week.

Dodd is the front-runner for this position because of his ties to Hollywood and his connections in Washington.
