After it was announced that Fox was doing an American Crime Story special on the OJ Simpson trial, the questions began as to who would play the role of the main characters.
It was announced that friends star David Schwimmer would be Robert Kardashian and Selma Blair would play the role of Kris Jenner.
Also joining the cast is John Travolta as litigator Robert Shapiro and Cuba Gooding Jr as OJ Simpson.
Robert Shapiro was OJ’s defense attorney in the trial following the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
David Schwimmer told reporters earlier this week that he had been talking to Robert Kardashian’s ex-wife, Kris Jenner, to get some tips as to what Robert was like.
‘I thought, “Who better to tell me who Robert was as a husband and a father than her?'”And it’s been a very exciting process so far,’ he said during a Fox programming presentation on Monday.
American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson is being made by the team behind American Horror story and Glee, producers Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy.
There will be ten episodes in the miniseries, which is based on the book The Run Of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin.
