No more scripts: Jerry O'Connell will hit the books this fall as a part-time law student, having enrolled at Los Angeles' Southwestern Law School.
"I had always planned on continuing my education at some point and because my wife [Rebecca Romijn] is working on Eastwick, which is on Wednesday nights at 10 pm this fall, and I'm home all day with the girls, I figured I would take a couple of classes at night," O'Connell tells Us Weekly. "It was either that or play video games until 2 am."
