Penn: Next fake job
may be as fake fireman
Sean Penn is eagerly looking forward
to his next fake career choice.
HOLLYWOOD (AP) -- Actor Sean Penn announced this week that he has narrowed down his next fake career to two options: astronaut and fireman.
The Oscar winner and political activist is currently covering the Iranian elections as a correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, but has said he feels that when his stint as a fake journalist comes to a close, he'd like to be ready with the next fake career that he can use his celebrity to weasel his way into.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed pretending to be a reporter and working side-by-side the actual reporters, all of whom are consummate professionals, in that they actually do this for a living, not just for fake," said Penn. "But next time around I thought being an astronaut and wearing that cool space suit or a fireman and sliding down the pole would be pretty awesome."
For future fake careers, Penn has mentioned doctor, policeman, professional wrestler, rock star and the guy who feeds the seals at the aquarium. "I hope my ideas for what fake jobs to do are ever changing," said Penn.
