Jerry O'Connell is hitting the books: The actor has enrolled at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.

"I had always planned on continuing my education at some point," said the star who is dad to twin girls with wife Rebecca Romijn and because my wife is working on Eastwick, which is on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. this fall, and I'm home all day with the girls, I figured I would take a couple of classes at night. "

As for how else he would have possibly passed the time? "It was either [law school] or play video games until 2 a.m.," he joked

Leslie Steinberg, Assistant Dean of Public Affairs at the school, told E! Online that the actor is enrolled as a part-time student and began attending classes last week.
