A New Orleans courtroom will be the setting for a real-life legal drama casting two Hollywood stars in adversarial roles.

Trial is scheduled to open today for Stephen Baldwin's federal lawsuit against fellow actor Kevin Costner over their investments in a device that BP used in trying to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The lawsuit claims Costner and a business partner duped Baldwin and a friend out of their shares of an $18 million deal for BP to buy oil-separating centrifuges after the April 2010 spill.
