"Jake Gyllenhaal has more important things to do today than Reese Witherspoon -- he's a prospective juror in a misdemeanor battery case in an L.A. courtroom.
Jake was just told to take his hat off inside the courtroom.
UPDATE: Jake has finally been excused for the day -- but he hasn't been excused from the case.
While inside the courtroom, Jake was allowed to go through voir dire (the juror questioning process) in a private room". Source: www.tmz.com
