Huckabee signs with talent agency

(CNN) – Former Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee has signed a contract with Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles, daughter and senior advisor Sarah Huckabee tells CNN.

“Nothing has been decided,” the younger Huckabee says of future projects, “[it] probably won't be just one thing but maybe several different things. Just exploring options right now.”

Huckabee follows former rival Fred Thompson’s lead by inking a post-campaign deal with a talent agency. But unlike the former Tennessee senator, this is Huckabee’s first official foray into show business.

While running, his appearances on late-night shows like 'Saturday Night Live' and 'The Colbert Report' garnered praise and Huckabee seemed armed with a new expression for every television appearance. As it became apparent he wouldn’t win the Republican nomination, reporters began asking Huckabee about a possible future in television.

In a letter to supporters Wednesday, Huckabee announced that on Thursday he will host what is being billed as “a landmark teleconference call” that will lay out his plans for the future and discuss the state of the conservative movement.

    GOV. HUCKABEE LOOKS LIKE AND IS PERSONALLY THE MR. CLEAN OF POLITICS. HE WOULD BE AN IDEAL ENDORSER OF ANY COMPANY OR PRODUCT. AND I DONT BELIEVE HE WILL ENDORSE ANYTHING WHICH HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN.

    That is great because he was nothing but a big ham on the campaign trail.

    Good Luck in Sin City
