Developer Rick Caruso Just days after developer Rick Caruso announced he won't challenge Antonio Villaraigosa for mayor of Los Angeles in next year's election, word comes that Caruso will play a role in local government.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Caruso, 52, to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission today.

The governor also named actor-producer Tab Hunter, 77, to the Santa Barbara Fair and Expo Board of Directors.

The Montecito resident starred in more than 50 films and his recording career included the song “Young Love.”
