Anthony Weiner reportedly once aspired to become a TV weatherman. Now, after resigning in disgrace, part of his wish may actually come true.

The camera-snapping lawmaker has been offered a guest-starring role on HBO's hit series, "Entourage."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin relayed a message to Weiner, asking him to be part of the cast on the cable network during the upcoming summer season. If Weiner takes the gig, he will be playing himself during the show's final season.

Next season's "Entourage" premiere takes place on July 24.

Another job offer for Weiner has arrived courtesy of former veep and current eco-cult leader Al Gore and Gore's cable network, Current TV.

MSNBC's former resident madman, Keith Olbermann, suggested to late-night host Jimmy Fallon that Weiner could have his own show on the Gore network.

Olbermann was asked how long he thinks it would be before CNN created a show just for Weiner. "Well, you know, I've got a 9 o'clock show that I am probably going to hire somebody for," Olbermann told Fallon, referring to the time slot that follows his own.

Fallon then asked Olbermann if he would hire Weiner. "Eliot Spitzer is doing OK on CNN at 8 o'clock," Olbermann replied, nodding his head yes.

Even if Weiner doesn't take one of the media spots, his future is all set, thanks to taxpayers.

According to the National Taxpayers Union, the former Twitter-happy congressman could receive a total retirement payment of somewhere between $1.1 and $1.3 million.
