Bill Cosby and his team are gearing up for the trial of his lifetime.
Jury selection starts May 22 in Pittsburgh for his June 5 Pennsylvania sexual assault trial. Lawyers are anticipating the trial to last about two weeks. According to Associated Press, Cosby told outlets that he lost his vision suddenly two years ago, making it "impossible" to even identify the women who said he sexually assaulted them over the past 50 years. He did not elaborate on the cause of the disability, and publicist Andrew Wyatt declined to discuss the actor's diagnosis or medical history.
The 79-year-old actor/comedian shares that he is working on new material and hopes to jump start his career again once the trial is done.
"I think about walking out on stage somewhere in the United States of America and sitting down in a chair and giving the performance that will be the beginning of the next chapter of my career," Cosby said in an email exchange with the National Newspaper Publishers Association according to his publicist.
"I miss it all and I hope that day will come. I have some routines and storytelling that I am working on," Cosby said.
Hm, we'll see about that.
