While "he" is used all roles can be cast as either male or female
Foreman - The Foreman is responsible for keeping the jury organized. He is an assistant football coach outside of the jury room.
2nd Juror - A shy bank clerk who takes time to feel comfortable enough to participate in the discussion.
3rd Juror - is a small business owner. He has a bad relationship with his own son, with whom he is no longer speaking. We are led to believe that this is a contributing factor to his prejudice.
4th Juror - is a stock broker. He handles himself with a very serious air. He deals with the facts of the case logically and concretely.
5th Juror - works in a Harlem hospital and says that he himself has lived in the slums his entire life.
6th Juror - A house painter, is happy that the case continues as it means he doesn’t have to work
7th Juror - main concern in the case is whether or not it will end before his ball game, for which he has tickets. Sells marmalade and is generally indifferent.
8th Juror - the only juror who votes “not guilty” at the first vote. He is discontent with the way the trial was handled and wants them to discuss the evidence in greater detail.
9th Juror - an old man. He respects 8th Juror's passion and sense of justice and quickly comes to his aid and becomes and advocate for the defendant.
10th Juror - one of the most fervent attackers of the defendant. Tactless and fairly bigoted, he condemns the defendant as “one of them” right from the start.
11th Juror - a German immigrant watchmaker. He is very patriotic and talks about how much he loves the American justice system.
12th Juror - works for a marketing agency, to which job he refers to often. He seems constantly distracted from the case.
