Will it be Judge Jesse?

Jesse Ventura may become a judge.

Not a real judge, just a television version of one.

Preliminary talks between Twentieth Television and the former Independence Party Minnesota governor apparently have begun for him to star in a half-hour court television show premiering in a year.


Twentieth declined comment, Ventura could not be reached on Monday and there was no answer at his agents' office.

The "TV Week" publication reported talks are progressing.
