Jerry O'Connell enrolls in law school



Tbd-jerryoconnell081709 Just the other day we were busy not wondering what happened to the fat kid from Stand By Me, and lo and behold, here's Us telling folks that Jerry O'Connell is going to law school. Well, that's a worthwhile pursuit, right?

The 35-year-old recently enrolled at L.A.'s Southwestern Law School, and has already had orientation. He'll be a part-time student, mostly at night, since his wife Rebecca Romijn just had twins last January.

"I had always planned on continuing my education at some point and because my wife is working on Eastwick, which is on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. this fall (nice plug, Jerry -- ed.), and I'm home all day with the girls, I figured I would take a couple of classes at night," O'Connell said. "It was either that or play video games until 2 a.m."

Or, you know, go out and find acting work yourself. Nah, that's crazy talk.
