Charlie Sheen was summoned for jury duty and actually showed up. Honestly, I’m surprised. Good work, Carlos. I didn’t think he’d turn down the offer to throw a tantrum for doing something he didn’t want to do. He didn’t make it very far before he was dismissed entirely. He spent the day (more like a few hours), “organizing his bets for the World Series, taking pics with fans, and downing a BLT for lunch” according to TMZ. But that’s not all. “I napped in the room most of the day!” he told reporters.
Tom Hanks was recently called in for jury duty and made it to the jury. Because of course. He’s Tom Hanks. (And Walt Disney, too.) However, Mr. Hanks’ involvement almost lead to a mistrial. Not his fault. A lawyer at the courthouse thanked Hanks for his service, which the defendants’ lawyer used to ask the judge for a mistrial, for, “prosecutorial misconduct.” They settled. (CNN)
God bless America.
