Jury Duty is the new documentary-style comedy series that has taken the internet by storm. The Amazon Freevee show, which was created by the makers of The Office, follows a court case through the eyes of a group of jurors.

The main hook of the show is that everyone involved – from the judge to the prosecutor and bailiff – is an actor, except for juror Ronald, who believes the cameras are there for a documentary about the judicial system. While we know Ronald is a contractor who genuinely signed up for jury duty, who are the actors playing the rest of the jurors? From Todd to Jeannie, find out below…

James Marsden

Hollywood actor James Marsden plays a self-important, obnoxious version of himself, who tries desperately hard to get himself excused but subsequently ends up getting the jury sequestered.

As he told his fellow jurors in episode one, he's perhaps best known for his roles in Enchanted, The Notebook, Westworld, Sonic the Hedgehog and of course, Sex Drive, which Ronald admitted was his favorite.
