Civil trial of Keanu Reeves begins in LA

Civil trial of Keanu Reeves begins in LA

It's a casting call for jurors in a civil trial involving Keanu Reeves.
Jury selection began Monday, and several prospective jurors indicated ties to the movie industry.
Once selected, jurors will have to decide whether Reeves owes damages to a paparazzo who fell while shooting pictures of the actor driving in 2007. Reeves was pulling out of a parking space, and Alison Silva says he was knocked down.
One woman who listed her occupation as an actress told a judge she knew people who worked with the "Matrix" star. Reeves, who was seated in the courtroom, smiled slightly as she spoke.
Another man said he did voiceover work and was once the voice of Bugs Bunny. He did an impromptu impression, causing laughter in the courtroom.
Another possible juror is a movie executive, and another woman identified herself as a model/actress/bartender.
Reeves will play at least a supporting role during the trial: he arrived Monday dressed in a brown suit and is expected to testify at some point during the trial.
