His name is Jerry Kroll and he bears a striking resemblance to a certain former governor.
He flew to Chicago for kicks this week and this afternoon walked into the sights of a bored media throng as we await Rod Blagojevich's jury.
Kroll is an actor -- and says he's also a civil attorney -- from Santa Barbara. He first realized his look-alike was one Rod Blagojevich while in his car, waiting at a stop sign in California.
A passerby kept gawking at him. Then gave him the finger. That was right around the time Rod Blagojevich was arrested in December of 2008, he says.
"That seemed odd to me," he said of the incident.
He later realized that more and more people were mistaking him for Blagojevich.
Kroll and his girlfriend got cheap tickets on Priceline and headed to Chicago.
"I've developed this warm spot for him," Kroll says of Blagojevich. "I feel his pain."
He insists he didn't manipulate his hair -- it's always looked like this.
The press here gave him the full treatment, telling him to enter the media pit at the lobby then shoved cameras and mics in his face.
We did this as a deputy U.S. Marshal looked on disapprovingly.
Kroll said he also works as a lawyer and has waited out his share of juries.
"Wouldn't it be cool if you could represent him?" One reporter asked to much laughter.
Kroll said he's appeared in two "Lifetime" movies and in a Showtime movie.
