Lisa Kudrow Shows Up for Jury Duty, Gets Dismissed

Lisa Kudrow reported for jury duty at Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, but the former Friends star managed to get dismissed the same day.

According to TMZ, the 50-year-old actress went all day without being selected for a jury panel. That automatically qualifies potential jurors for dismissal in L.A. County.

Sources tell the gossip website Kudrow sat quietly in the jury pool room, wearing a comfortable pair of loafers. The sources add that while some of the other jurors were star struck, Kudrow was friendly to everyone.

Mark Hamill Talks About Being Back on Star Wars Set

Mark Hamill couldn’t be more thrilled to be back playing Luke Skywalker and he talked about it’s like to be on set and with old friends Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.

“I never thought we’d come back. I still can’t believe it’s happening,” Hamill told BBC News. “To go on to those sets that evoke so many memories, is just astonishing. I have real ties to this country [England], my son was born when we were making Empire Strikes Back…it just seems like an unexpected gift.”

Hamill also updated fans on Ford’s status. The actor was injured last month and suffered a broken leg.

Hamill was not on set at the time of the injury, but said, “It sounded terrible, but I hear he’s doing really well. It’ll take more than that to stop Harrison Ford.”

Hamill also touched on working with the new cast.

“It’s really about the new generation of characters, we are just there to lend our support and grow contractually obligated beards,” he said. “These kids…they are so talented, I was just overwhelmed. They are also diverse. There are people I recognize like Andy Serkis and new people I’d never seen before. But they are so good, I am thinking about asking them for advice.”
