Perhaps you've read or heard about the ABC television show Boston Legal's recent foray into the United States Supreme Court. Arguing a case with many similarities to this term's Kennedy v. Louisiana (argued April 16, 2008), character Allen Shore (played by James Spader) takes on the justices with his characteristic chutzpah. Will Justice Thomas speak? (I won't say; watch and find out.) Note the look-alike actors playing the justices, plus the other realistic details (e.g., the quills on counsel tables).
