Same as the Fonz. Fred Thompson probably does commercials to make some extra $$$$$ and to add to his personal retirement funds. He also has some kids he probably has to help put through college in a decade or so. His political career is likely over, the acting roles have become fewer and farther between, the residuals/royalties for his previous work are probably drying up, and his attempt to become president didn't work out so well.
Remember Richard Karn, ex-Family Feud host and Tim Allen's sidekick on Home Improvement? Nope? Don't feel bad, most people don't. He's pitching informercial products now.
Alex Trebek probably didn't want to put his future in "Jeopardy", so he's been doing commercials for life insurance for some time now.
