It's beginning to feel like camp.

The pool of reporters take turns going in the jury room to hear the judge question potential jurors. So far this morning it doesn't look like any will make the cut to serve on the trial.

Two people said they had issues with child pornography. A man said watching the sex video in court would prevent him from giving Kelly a fair trial.

A third person said he thought Kelly is guilty. He wrote on his jury questionnaire he can't be fair.

Meanwhile we reporters sometimes get bored during all the wait time. So we've decided to cast a movie. We spend down-time casting all the players in the court room.

So far, we have Laura Linney, Anthony Michael Hall, Don Rickles, Denzel Washington, and Prince Markie D.

I'm fighting to cast the late Jerry Orbach.

I'm played by Sanaa Lathan. Aside from that, I will not say who's who in our unnamed movie-- the decorum order is big trouble. One reporter almost lost his media credential today for trying to bring donuts to the sheriff officers.
