LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Actor Jerry O'Connell has begun classes at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, a school official confirmed.

O'Connell, 35, is best known for his work in the films "Stand By Me," "Jerry Maguire" and "Kangaroo Jack," as well as in the TV shows "My Secret Identity," "Sliders," "Crossing Jordan" and "Carpoolers." He and his wife, model-actress Rebecca Romijn, are also the parents of twin girls born last January.

"He is very excited to be starting his law school education here at Southwestern," Leslie Steinberg, the school's Assistant Dean of Public Affairs, told Usmagazine.com about O'Connell and his new pursuit. "He just had orientation last week, and he started classes this week. ... (He was) very impressed with the faculty and the vibe here. This is brand new to him, as well. He's very much looking forward to his education."

O'Connell previously studied screenwriting at New York University.
