Ronald Gladden Family: Parents, Siblings

Ronald Gladden was just your average construction specialist until he unknowingly starred in the mockumentary Jury Duty. So, when everything came to light, he “didn’t wanna risk being the one to blow this whole thing” and kept it a secret from his family — only letting them know he was “gonna be famous here pretty soon.”

But who are Ronald’s family? Learn all about his parents and siblings as you scroll down.

Meet Jury Duty Star Ronald Gladden Family

Ronald Gladden comes from a family of six — his parents, himself, and his three siblings. He loves them to the moon. But didn’t trust them with his secret that he was pranked on Jury Duty. “I didn’t tell anybody, because I didn’t wanna risk being the one to blow this whole thing,” he explained.

However, he did jokingly tell them, like “Oh, hey you guys, I’m gonna be famous here pretty soon. You can’t talk to me like that.” So, when Jury Duty finally premiered, it was great to see their reaction. “I was like, ‘Dude, I told you so,’” he added.

Ronald first signed up for Jury Duty through a Craigslist ad. But of course, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. “I signed up for what I thought was a documentary. I didn’t really know what was going on ’til the end,” he said. Initially, he thought he was just doing his civic duty, with a few cameras following along. But little did he know, everyone except him was an actor pretending to work in a three-week civil trial in an LA courtroom. 

To keep Ronald out of the loop, they even sequestered him because James Marsden called the paparazzi on himself. “I was on lockdown for three-plus weeks. I don’t think people understand that. Had no access to the outside world, no phone, no laptop, no internet. I couldn’t watch TV. Like the only things I could do in my spare time were read a book, or—production got us a Switch, so I could play some video games every once in a while,” he recalled.

During the quarantine, he didn’t even like contacting his family because only was a bailiff standing in the room with him the whole time, but also they were listening to the entire conversation.

Fortunately, Ronald’s upbeat personality quickly caught the viewers’ attention, they started calling him things like a “walking green flag.”

Now that the filming wrapped up, Ronald has gone back to his daily life as a construction manager at The Home Depot. Prior to Jury Duty, he worked as the VP of construction at Scrubbing Solar LLC.
