Jake G. Spits Up after Court

Jake Gyllenhaal was so bored after his first day of jury service yesterday, he could spit. Yes, we know it doesn't make sense, but he spit as he left the courthouse.

Jake's prospective new role: Juror in a misdemeanor battery case in downtown L.A. He's back in court at 10:30 AM. He's on a panel and has not yet been questioned by the lawyers. We were there yesterday as Jake sat all morning in the jury assembly room, squished into a corner by a really large man.

Will Jake make the cut today? A lot is riding on it. He stands to earn $15 a day and $.34 a mile.

Stay tuned.
