Hollywood is coming to Fairfax County, but without the red carpet and high-fashion couture. Two famous actors embroiled in a

 bitter defamation case are scheduled to face off in a trial starting April 11 in Fairfax County Circuit Court.

Johnny Depp, 58, and Amber Heard, 35, who were briefly married from 2015 to 2017,

are set to begin their long-anticipated defamation trial with jury selection that day

The trial is expected to last through the end of May, and the case has drawn national and

international attention.  Depp is seeking $50 million from Heard for a 2018 Washington Post op-ed

she wrote in which she discussed domestic violence.
