Now that Robert Blake has put the possibility of jail time behind him after being acquitted of his wife's slaying, is Hollywood willing to look the other way and allow him to practice his craft?

The question is, does Hollywood have a job for a man who, some believe, got away with murder?

His friend of 30 years, publicist Dale Olson, says that since the acquittal, Blake has received more than a dozen job offers, although he declines to discuss specific producers or projects.

The publicist would not disclose the nature of the job offers or the producers who made inquiries, but hinted that nearly all of the gigs would "begin at an Italian restaurant in the Valley and end at a shallow grave in the desert."
